Google's new job search feature sifts through popular sites and refines results

When it comes to job searches, there are a lot of different options available. While they can all be valuable resources, they sometimes tend to have overlapping job listings, making the search a bit more tedious. Luckily, Google now has a solution that will allow job hunters to sift through the results more efficiently.

Using the feature is quite simple, you simply use Google to search for a job, for example, you can input a phrase like "writing position in Los Angeles" or "chef in Hawaii" and the search will spit out the results, letting you know what is available. The best part about this feature is that it pulls results from all of the big name job hunting websites, company websites, and even Facebook. Although users will be utilizing Google, they will still have the flexibility to narrow down the search and make things more specific, as can be seen in the screenshots above.

While the feature above is already convenient, Google takes it a step further by removing any duplicate results that might come up from the various source websites, while also using machine learning to categorize the results. According to TechCrunch, Google is not trying to create a competing service and is primarily interested in enabling "the players in the ecosystem to be more successful."
