Google’s expansion into the recruitment market is an interesting development for the sector and probably the biggest since the evolution of LinkedIn and Indeed back in the mid 2000s. Guru is fully integrated with Google Jobs and will show all adverts across the new platform.
First launched in June 2017 in the US, the Google Jobs service has been a popular addition and has since expanded across Canada, India, Spain, parts of Africa before reaching the UK last month.
What are the benefits of Google Jobs
Those integrated with Google Jobs will see dedicated jobs listings appear at the top of Google searches for related search terms. Up until now, Indeed as well as the biggest generalist job boards, have enjoyed first page domination across search results, Google’s service will provide added competition to the sector providing diversity for job seekers allowing them to see vacancies from across the spectrum and those that are most relevant to them.
How can I get my vacancies on Google Jobs
In order to enable Google Jobs to index your job listings, you must implement the correct schema markup on your website. The necessary schema allows Google to read your site structure and re-produce your job listings in the correct format and in response to a relevant search. You must then give each job listing a dated sitemap, Atom feed or RSS. Detailed Google Job Posting Integration here.
Alternatively, you can send us your vacancy or speak to Guru, where we can advertise your job posting on Google Jobs and across all other major UK channels – Access the largest job seeking audience in the UK with Guru.
