What is Google for Jobs?

Google for Jobs is a search engine feature that gathers job listings from across the web (from job listing sites and so forth) into one large database and presented to the google user in their search results. Here's a great explainer video.

There are a few ways to bring up Google Jobs in search results. Users can search by a job title (ie: "insurance sales manager jobs"), jobs in a specified location (ie: "jobs in Lake Orion, MI"), or a combination of the two (ie: insurance sales manager jobs in Lake Orion MI).

Here is an example: Let's search "insurance sales manager jobs in Lake Orion MI"

In the search results, I was presented with this user-friendly related search from Google for Jobs. From here, the job seeker can easily click and apply for the job.

Although google searched jobs are primarily still dominated by indeed.com and ZipRecruiter, I feel confident that Google for Jobs will continue to build out this search engine feature.
