Google has now launched an employment service for its users which is not officially announced yet but a website is visible for us to see and interpret. The site is open for users to see but does not facilitate a sign-in service as of now. Hire will enable companies to post job listings and individuals to search for and find their next job.
The job search engine will require you to sign in with your existing Google account. Although Google has denied the claims, privacy concerns regarding the search history of the applicants being visible to potential employers have already made a controversy.
A Google spokesperson made a comment regarding this claiming that “Google Hire is a product under development that will help G Suite customers manage their hiring process more effectively. The product will allow employers to collect candidate applications online. Only information that a candidate voluntarily provides would be passed to a prospective employer as part of their online application. Private information will not be shared.“
Google Hire, the new recruitment tool under development is very similar to LinkedIn, which will allow aspirants to send out job applications to employers, adding yet another site you’ll need to upload your resume to. Not just this, a few months ago, Facebook has also rolled out support for job listings. The tech giant has to face a lot of competition because of other established online job portals like Monster, Glassdoor etc.
