Glassdoor Partners with Google’s New Jobs Feature at Launch

Glassdoor, the fastest growing U.S. job site1, is excited to partner with Google in the launch of its new job search feature, out today in the United States. Through Google’s job search feature people can quickly access millions of job listings, including those on Glassdoor, along with company ratings to help them make the important decision of where to work.

“We are delighted to be a launch partner in Google’s new job search feature to further support our mission of helping people everywhere find a job and company they love,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor. “Where we work can have a major impact on our lives, and we are aligned with Google in our efforts to make it as easy as possible to get relevant open job postings and useful resources into the hands of job seekers to help them find the right job. Glassdoor believes in the power of transparency and we expect this partnership will also help more people access our useful and trusted resources like Glassdoor company ratings, reviews, salary estimates, and interview questions that can give them a leg up in their job search and interview process.”

 

Glassdoor is now the second largest job site in the country1, welcoming an average of 45 million unique users each month2. The millions of job listings available on Glassdoor are a powerful combination with the unique first hand reviews and insights into a company that creates a job search experience that’s preferred by job seekers. In fact, in a recent blind test taste, Glassdoor’s job search experience is preferred over other leading job sites3.

We expect by partnering with Google we can also help employers get their job openings in front of a wider audience of active job seekers and deliver more informed candidates — the people who are well-researched and engaged with a company. Furthermore, informed candidates who apply through Glassdoor are twice as likely to be hired than those who apply through other job sites4.

We’re excited to receive feedback from job seekers and employers on Glassdoor’s participation in Google’s new job search experience. If you’ve checked it out, let us know your thoughts.
