Google has teamed up with Madgex, the technology provider behind many of the top-flight publisher job boards such as Guardian Jobs, to test and launch a new search experience to help people find jobs more quickly and efficiently. Now when people search for jobs on Google in the US, they’ll see an immersive experience that allows them to explore jobs from across the web and refine their search to meet their unique needs. This brand-new job listing experience formally launches today for people in the US and Madgex has ensured its market-leading job board software is fully integrated and ready to go.
With this new search feature on Google, people in the US will see at-a-glance details about the posting, such as the job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship, as well as the opportunity to access detailed information about each job. They can even see the how long it would take to commute to the job from their home with the power of Google Maps.
One search will now bring up multiple jobs from multiple sources. It’s only when the person clicks the ‘apply’ button that they will be taken to the appropriate job board.
Madgex job boards in the US can take full advantage of this new functionality from day one, thanks to their partnership with Google.
In their quest to optimize the feature and make it more useful for people looking for jobs on Search, Google was keen to ensure they were capturing jobs from top-flight brands such as The Washington Post, and as such, have been working with industry-leader Madgex, ahead of the launch. Madgex is pleased to announce that all its job boards have the ability to integrate with Google’s new search results.
Madgex CEO Tom Ricca-McCarthy said: “We power some of the leading brands in online recruitment, which led to Google approaching us to work on this new feature. They were looking for top job boards in the US and as Madgex powers high-quality brands such as The Washington Post and The New England Journal of Medicine we were an obvious partner for this new search facility.
“Ensuring Madgex-powered job boards are integrated with this new Google feature is part of our drive to provide our clients with the best functionality and ensure our job boards lead the way in recruitment technology.”
Only jobs posted on job boards that integrate with Google will receive traffic from this new, enhanced search feature. This means it is now more important than ever for job board owners to ensure they are partnered with the right technology provider.
It is expected that this feature will launch in the rest of the world towards the end of the year and all Madgex-powered job boards will be able to integrate from launch.
