Review:

Google for Jobs is a free service that uses AI and machine learning to increase job post visibility by showing job postings in Google search results. Some experience with HTML is needed if you don't want to post to job posting sites.

In Australia, more than 11 million monthly Google searches are career-related. Gauging from the impact Google for Jobs has had in other markets, Australian employers and recruiters can expect the feature, once it is available in the country, to lead to increased traffic to optimized posts.

Pros:

  • The service is free.
  • Once you've integrated your careers page with Google, your new jobs will show up in results as you add them.
  • Resources on how to add structured data to your posts are easily available.
  • You can post jobs to third-party sites that are already integrated with Google, so you don't have to change the code on your site.
  • The job posts are linked directly to your website.
  • Job seekers can search, save searches, and create job alerts.
  • Job search filters include title, location, type, and employer.

Cons:

  • Google for Jobs does not have a resume database for employers to access.
  • Employers have to research third-party sites to find out if they use Google's structured data.
  • Google for Jobs does not provide an option to sponsor listings to make job posts stand out.

Google for Jobs vs. SEEK:

SEEK is a leading job board in Australia. Although SEEK does not offer a free option, its benefits compared to Google for Jobs lie in the additional features, such as a resume database, applicant tracking, and email scheduling tools, that support employers' hiring activities.

Google for Jobs vs. Jora:

Jora offers ten free job postings per month and is easy to use for job seekers, which is good for employers using the platform to find candidates. However, Google for Jobs reaches more people. If you can master the structured data required by Google for Jobs for your job to show up in search results, then it is the better option.

Google for Jobs vs. Indeed:

Indeed is a popular and trusted job board that offers built-in screening tools and a resume database of over 245 million resumes. However, you must pay for your job posts to stay prominent on the site. If you can get the Google for Jobs structured data set up correctly, your job posts will appear in Google search results for free.

FAQs:

How do I post a job for free on Google?

To post a job for free on Google, you just need to configure your jobs page correctly so that it integrates with Google for Jobs, or use a third-party service to do it for you.

Can any business post a job on Google for free?

Yes, as of now it appears any business can use this service if the jobs are posted in English. It does not appear that the Google job search engine has been rolled out to non-English-speaking countries yet.

Is there a Google job posting site?

Not really. Rather than create a separate Google for Jobs website, or Google job board, Google job listings show up in organic search results. So if you search for something like "Engineer jobs near me" on Google's home page, you'd see Google job postings for that search among the results.

How long does it take for my Google job listing to show up?

Assuming you have everything set up correctly, it shouldn't take too long — you just have to wait for Google to index your site. This can sometimes take a few days.
