Does anyone actually use Google to search for Jobs? Don’t job seekers just go to a job board?
While estimates range, it is clear that 100s of millions of job searches start on Google each month. And studies have shown that 73% of job seekers start their search on Google. Historically, the job boards would compete heavily for top placement for job searches through both organic and paid channels. Today, Google is presenting the Google for Jobs interface at the top of the search results to deliver highly relevant search results to job seekers. While searches still do occur directly on the job boards, there is a dramatic shift underway in how job seekers find jobs today.
