Google has announced its all-new Google for Job initiative which will help job seekers find a job right from the Search.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai kicked off I/O 2017 conference on Wednesday with a keynote address stressing on the company’s new focus – AI (artificial intelligence). Under this umbrella, Pichai announced the Google for Jobs initiative – developed with the goal to help users find the right jobs using machine learning capabilities.
Under the company’s new Google for Jobs initiative, the company will be launching a new feature in Search in the coming weeks that will help job seekers look for work.
Google for its new initiative will initially partner with job listing sites like LinkedIn, Monster, Glassdoor, Careerbuilder, and Facebook among others. The company will further let job seekers filter job openings based on location, category, date posted, and full-time or part-time employment, and other options.
The company wasn’t very clear on how the new initiative relates to its recent unveiling of Google Hire, a tool for managing job applicants.
Pichai also introduced the company’s new tool dubbed Google.ai which can help researchers identify genetic variants more quickly. The company also launched a dedicated website, google.ai, which will be a centre point for all research related tools, and other AI based tools.
