first, what is google for jobs?

Google for Jobs is exactly what it sounds like. You can now use Google to search for job opportunities. Using its massive search capabilities, Google finds and displays job listings from around the web directly in Google search.

how do you use google for jobs?

It’s really easy! Open google.ca in your browser and add ‘job’ to your search. If Google detects that you’re looking for a job (for example, if you search for ‘warehouse jobs’) the Google for Jobs box will be shown on the results page, with a list of recently posted jobs from around the web! You can click on the blue Google for Jobs banner to see even more jobs. There’s no special job search bar. It all happens right in your normal Google search bar.
