Google's job network is integrated into your ATS to expand the visibility of your jobs so your organization can reach the most job seekers possible. Using Google Jobs can increase applicant traffic since it lets candidates find your jobs in the places where applicants are looking.
By default, Google Jobs is activated in your online hiring center. To disable or reactivate this feature, go to Admin > Applicant Sources. Select Google from the Source column and use the available switch. When successful changes are made, a success notification will appear on the screen to confirm the setting was saved.
When activated, newly posted jobs will flow automatically to Google Jobs using Google's preferred structured data. In addition, changes such as editing, pausing, or closing a job will be reflected. The updates will not be "instant" like other traditional job boards. Please allow additional time for the job to be added or removed from Google. If an applicant tries to apply to a job that has been recently paused or closed, they will receive immediate notification that the job is no longer available and will be provided with a link to your other available positions.
Google isn't a traditional job board but acts as a pass-through or facilitator between a job seeker searching on Google and the resulting job postings. Jobs found on Google will offer job seekers one or more ways to apply for each position based on data from the original settings and the source of the job postings.
For example, searching "health jobs near me" will display multiple local job options in the Google search. Each job will be presented as a "card." Selecting a job will provide the position's details including the various options to apply such as directly on the Careers Site, Career Centers, Monster, etc.
Note: Since Google is presenting information to job seekers from various locations, the applicant source in your hiring system will not be cited as Google, but as the original source of the job, such as Careers Page or Monster, etc
Google Job Data
The following data points will be included in a Google Jobs post from your hiring system:
- Date Posted
- Job Description
- Company Name
- Company Logo (if applicable)
- Job Location
- Job Title
- Employment Type
- Job ID
- Job Location Type (remote settings will be mapped to Google, so any fully remote jobs will be indicated as such on Google)
Note: The one variable that can't be sent to Google Jobs is the Compensation/Salary field.
