Google for Jobs (G4J), the internet giant’s job search tool, has launched in Austria. The tool was launched in cooperation with numerous partners, including Xing, Academics.at and local newspaper Der Standard.
In 2017, Google first rolled out its jobs search engine in the U.S. The service is now available in more than 120 countries, including Germany and Switzerland. G4J allows users to search for jobs utilizing various filters such as location, industry, entry-level, part-time and full-time jobs. Jobseekers can save their searches and might also opt to receive e-mail notifications.
“Especially in these uncertain times it can be difficult to find a job. That is why we have worked with job portals to achieve a better experience in Google search,” said Christine Antlanger-Winter, country director of Google Austria.
“Thanks to the cooperation with local and international partners, job seekers can from now on also in Austria search faster for relevant job offers on the job portals and access helpful information on employer reviews and application modalities,” she added.
Der Standard is one of Austria’s most read newspaper and hosts a well-known job portal that is used by 2.5 million unique users per month. Nina Bacinger-Birkfellner, head of business at the newspaper, said the cooperation will increase the site’s reach and offer higher visibility. Austria’s No. 1 recruitment vertical, Karriere.at, is currently not planning to cooperate with G4J.
