How To Use Google Jobs

In the Google search bar, type in the kind of job you are searching for, then accompanied by “jobs,” for instance, “Graphic Designer Jobs.” Once you do this, Google will automatically search the internet and display all the available jobs near your location.

If you like, you can then broaden the search and also include your location. In this case, you will type in the job name, then “job” and your location, for instance, “Graphic Designer, Jobs, Seattle,” and wait for Google to display all the amazing jobs available from different organizations.

Next you see a navigation bar with these options, go-to category, title, location, date posted company type, employer, in that order. After that, you should be able to see industries where all these jobs are coming from. 

It’s up to you to either choose one or two jobs or ones you feel you best qualify for. If you want recent jobs, click on the date posted and click on all tasks from the dates you want. When looking for jobs, you must go for ones that are so recent, mostly within that month.

Also, another pro-tip, if you are not sure of the exact word to use as you do your search, replace that word with an asterisk (*) and remember to put spaces on either side. Google usually replaces it with the word it thinks might suit best.

Note that Google searches on a phrase only if you close it inside quotation marks, as we have illustrated above. Always remember to close your job search in quotation marks.

Make Use Of Google Maps

This is one major mistake that most jobseekers make. They focus on significant companies and leaving out smaller and startup companies. That is why you need to make use of Google maps and search for smaller companies within your area. They don’t know you and you don’t know them, but it could be a match. 

This is how you will use this feature, go to Maps.Google.com, type, for instance, “Graphic Designers near me,” and you will see several job posts near your location. If you want more information about the job, go ahead and click on the red button or the listing on the left side of your screen. 

You might get detailed information about the position, their phone number, business hours, and even website information.

Bottom Line

If you have been looking for a job, then make use of Google search, and you will thank me later. It has fantastic features that most people don’t know about. If you are looking for a job near you, make use of Google Maps, it’s equally amazing, and you will get accurate results.
