Want a work-from-home job? Google makes it easier to find one
If you are also looking for such an opportunity, Google has just made your job easier. The search engine giant has added a new feature that allows users to search for work from home jobs.
In an ideal world, you should be paid to work at your own will, even from home without having to step out. Unfortunately, that isn't the case in the real world. However, more and more employees are turning to work-from-home job opportunities as they offer greater flexibility. If you are also looking for such an opportunity, Google has just made your job easier. The search engine giant has added a new feature that allows users to search for work from home jobs. The feature would initially be available in the United States but could be rolled out in other countries in future too.
"To help employers and recruitment platforms connect with candidates who need more flexibility, today we are announcing an improved job search experience that allows our customers to make remote work opportunities in the US more discoverable on their career sites. Jennifer Su, Cloud Product Manager, Google, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.
"This functionality supports users who search for jobs with terms like `work from home` or `WFH` and returns the relevant jobs that may be labelled differently as `remote` or `telecommute`," the post added.
The company has been working on job search features since 2018. Su added that as per the feedback received by Google, it was difficult to detect and show remote job opportunities when job seekers enter ‘work from home’ or other related queries in the search bar. The company has also enhanced its job search capabilities in more than 100 languages.
With the introduction of the new feature, Google hopes to make remote work opportunities more discoverable to job seekers. It already lets job searchers filter by commute time and type of transit, so it makes sense to add this work-from-home option, especially now that more employees are looking for this kind of flexibility.
