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 use third-party job posting sites.

Google for Jobs does not offer a sponsored tier to increase the visibility of job posts in search results. Overall, the feature offers a convenient way for job seekers to find suitable job opportunities and presents an affordable way for U.S. employers to reach relevant, local candidates actively seeking opportunities.

Pros:

  • The service is completely 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.
  • Google Analytics tracks clicks to your website through your listing in the Google job search feature.
  • The job posts are linked directly to your website.
  • The feature allows job seekers to save searches and create job alerts.
  • Job seekers can filter job listings in the Google for Jobs feature according to 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 offer sponsored postings.

How to Post Your Jobs on Google:

  1. Create a job listing on your company's career page.
  2. Add structured data to your job postings according to the instructions provided by Google.
  3. Use sitemaps to tell Google when you have added or removed a job posting from your website.
  4. Use Google search console to make sure the ad is being indexed and to track your results.

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.

Google for Jobs vs. Monster:

Google for Jobs is completely free, while Monster's pricing starts at $12.00 per day. Google for Jobs makes it easy for job seekers to discover job opportunities, but it does not offer any hiring solutions beyond the option to have job postings indexed by Google. Monster, on the other hand, offers comprehensive recruitment solutions.

Google for Jobs vs. Handshake:

Handshake is a one-stop shop for finding and recruiting students from universities and colleges across the country. It offers many great features and is free. Google for Jobs does not target students specifically and doesn't offer many features, but what it does excellently is to increase job posting visibility.

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?

According to Google, it may take several days for a job opening you published on your website to be indexed by Google for Jobs.
