So ‘Google Hire’ it is. The search engine giant is soon coming up with its own job application website. So now, Google is coming hard to take on the LinkedIn with its new recruitment tool.
With this move, Google seems ready to lock horns with the recruitment portal biggies like LinkedIn and Jobvite. When the global technology giant enters a niche, concerns for the incumbents are inevitable. Google Hire will soon be tracking and managing the applications sent to these rivals. The Google Hire website is already up, and you can access it at hire.withgoogle.com.
Google Hire will just be another job posting and seeking website. It would work like a portal where all the employers would post their requirements to the job listings. The seekers would then apply to whatever suits their profile.
Google has already launched the Signup page for Google Hire. The page view would tell you to sign up for the service.ol. Also, we came across a job listing page. This page had a list of various requirements, and pop opens a new page when you click a particular job. This new page displays the entire details of the job including description, skills required, and a quick form which the applicant will fill.
As per a Google spokesperson, Google Hire is still under development. He says that the tool intends to help the G Suite customers in active and enhanced management of their hiring process. These employers would easily be able to collect a candidate’s information online.
Many rumours were came flying that suggested that the new job portal of Google will let recruiters access te whole search history of the applicants. The fact that a user needs to sign in with the Google account was the root of this rumour. Google denies any such possibility.
As a spokesperson states, “Google does not share private information such as search or viewing history. Only information that a candidate voluntarily provides would be passed to a prospective employer as part of their online application — for example, first name, last name, email address, resume, cover letter, etc. Private information will not be shared.”
At the end of the day, the ‘Google Hire’ needs to offer amazing experience and usability to succeed. Ther job portal market has several global leaders including LinkedIn, Jobvite, etc. So to beat the LinkedIn or even get close to that, Google Hire needs to offer what te world has never seen.
