Of course, since the service matches search words with words contained in job postings, results may in some cases be peripheral - for example, when we searched for our dream job, "cat behaviorist", we found nothing listed under Google's new service.

Google plans to keep adding new job sites to the system over time. With job postings scattered across the web, newspapers and help wanted signs, it's not always easy to find ones that are a good fit based on your unique needs and skills.

Google for Jobs finally went live on Tuesday, after first being announced at the Google I/O keynote in May.

Now when people search for jobs on Google in the USA, they'll see an immersive experience that allows them to explore jobs from across the web and refine their search to meet their unique needs.

Job seekers in the United States can now use Google to search for a new job the same way they would search for any other piece of information. Zakrasek said, "We want to do what we do best: search".

Google has inked partnerships with the world's biggest online job boards to bring job vacancies right on the search engine's platform.

A particularly useful feature is the job alerts tool, which, when activated, lets you receive email notifications whenever new jobs are posted for a specific search query. The search result will also provide the ratings of the company.

Google is in the process of making Search even handier for job hunters, which really is a godsend in the current employers market that we're in. To apply for a job, you can click on the listing, and Google will redirect you to where the site was originally posted.

Google is trying to turn its search engine into an employment engine. "We want the players in the ecosystem to be more successful". To make that happen, Google is collaborating with other companies from across the industry, including LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor and Facebook.

Nick Zakrasek, the Google staffer who led the development of the project, told TechCrunch that vacancies published to multiple sites are filtered to improve the user experience.
