If you’re looking for a new career, you know that searching for a job can be a full-time job itself.

Now, Google has launched a new feature for job seekers that can help them find open positions right through the search engine that you’re already using.

Google for Jobs says it provides the most comprehensive listing of jobs anywhere.

“You don’t go to any special website, you just do a Google search,” money expert Clark Howard explained. “The more you’ve been using Google over the years, the more they know about you and the more they’re able to line you up with a great job possibility, at least that’s the promise.”

The new tool is very simple to use. Here’s a step-by-step guide to show you how it works!

How to use Google for Jobs

Step 1: Your hunt for a new job begins just like any other Google search. Simply enter terms like “jobs near me,” “accounting jobs” or similar job-seeking queries.

Step 2: When we entered “accounting jobs near me” into the search field, Google returned more than 100 job postings in the Atlanta area. Results included jobs posted on CareerBuilder, Glassdoor and LinkedIn.

Google says you’ll see job postings from these sites and others around the web immediately after they’re posted.

Step 3: On desktop and mobile, you’ll find filters to customize your search. This setting lets you narrow results based on things like a specific job title, city of employer and when the job was posted.

Depending on the job you’re searching for, you may see an approximate commute time.

Step 4: Finally, you can turn on job alerts to receive an email notification as soon as new positions that meet your search criteria are posted online.

To get that dream job, you need a solid resume. Read Clark’s 9 keys to online resume success, which will help you get your resume past the robots and onto the desks of the right people.
