See Pay Ranges and Travel Times With Google’s Improved Job Search Tool

Finding a job is stressful, especially when you think about switching between different job sites that you will have to look for in search of a suitable job (not to mention all the accompanying resume settings ). To help, Google is updating its recently launched Google for Jobs service , allowing job seekers to gather more information about potential job openings and helping them narrow down their promising career opportunities without having to go to tab after tab of identical listings.

The job search service is integrated into the Google search engine, so you can search for performances as easily as you search for celebrity ages or incurable diseases based on your symptoms (it’s just a cold). It is also trying to fill in the gaps in a glaring omission in nearly 85% of all job postings, according to Google : the real paycheck. Google is attempting to correct an error including reported or estimated salaries based on job title and stated salary ranges from sites such as Glassdoor, PayScale, and LinkedIn.

Another big feature: Job seekers looking to avoid existentially disruptive commuting to work can now narrow their potential to specific cities or a specific distance from your home with an updated location filtering tool.

While job searches often involve visiting multiple job sites such as LinkedIn or, if Google finds the same job post across multiple sites, it will allow you to choose which site you want to apply from. Google says the job save feature will arrive “in a couple of weeks” and will allow you to save specific job listings and sync them across your devices. Employers wishing to add their own job listings to Google’s job search service can follow the company’s instructions for posting job advertisements on their search engine. You can also place your job posting on a list of sites (such as LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, and Glassdoor, among others) already integrated with Google’s job search service to avoid integration issues yourself.
