“We believe that the web allows anyone, anywhere, of any age, to grow their business, learn the skills they need to get a job, to grow in their career, become an entrepreneur or developer. This new jobs Search tool will be a key driver for connecting job seekers to open opportunities, helping more people to Grow with Google,” Juliet Ehimuan Chiazor, Google Country Director explained.
Speaking at the event, Ayodeji Akinwunmi admonished jobseekers to continuously develop themselves beyond what they studied in the four walls of the classroom and to understand that “getting a job is not an entitlement, but a gift and so when one gets a job, it should be held with utmost care.”
The Google For Jobs feature will ensure that you see hundreds of job offers from the Jobberman website as soon as they are published.
Regardless of whether you are using a computer or mobile device, the platform allows you to explore the job offers available on the Web by simple requests like “jobs near me” (job offers near me) or “teaching jobs.”
