“Google has changed so much about how people consume information, we knew that one of the first things we would do with the new HealthcareSource Job Board would be to integrate with Google for Jobs,” says Sean Parlin, Director, HealthcareSource Job Board. “And we are happy to say that when Google detects that a user might be looking for a job, our board’s postings will be listed in the appropriate job search results.”
“This is just another thing we are doing as a healthcare talent platform to help our clients get their open positions in front of quality talent with no additional effort or cost on their part,” he says.
According to Net Market Search, Google accounts for 77 percent of all web search traffic. The integration of HealthcareSource Job Board postings on the search engine will make jobs more readily accessible to new audiences. Additionally, Google offers many benefits for job postings that integrate with Google for Jobs. These include:
- Prominent Placement in Google Search Results: All HealthcareSource Job Board job postings are eligible to be displayed in Google’s Job Search results. This placement is at the top of the natural search listings and is designed to grab job seekers’ attention.
- More, Motivated Job Applicants: Google’s new user experience enables job seekers to filter by various criteria like location or job title, allowing job seekers to find the job that best matches their ambitions easily. This gets the right people to your job posting more quickly.
- Increased Chances of Discovery and Conversion: The biggest benefit of all is that job seekers will have a new avenue to interact with your postings and click through to your site to apply.
“We’re constantly working to improve the job posting and application experience, and this is our next step in that effort,” says Mary Kate Kelly, Product Manager, Job Board. “Integrating Google for Jobs with our mobile-optimized applications means the volume of candidates who can easily find and apply to your openings from anywhere is constantly rising.”
