LinkedIn is known as one of the best online job portals all over the world with its applications spread internationally. Tech giant, Microsoft acquired LinkedIn a year ago and it was running pretty successfully till this latest news broke out stating that Google is all set to roll out its own Job Search app by the name of “Google Hire.”
Search Engine Journal’s Report
According to the latest report published by Search Engine Journal (SEJ), the tech rivals of Microsoft, Google is all set to release its very own online Job Portal. According to SEJ’s report, Google’s statement goes like:
Google Hire is a product under development that will help G Suite customers manage their hiring process more effectively. The product will allow employers to collect candidate applications online.
The service has not gone live yet but they have created this page for the users to signup. You can signup for the new service simply by providing your desired details here and do not fear about your Google account’s data being linked with the form. The company has given an explanation for the matter stated below:
The only information that a candidate voluntarily provides would be passed to a prospective employer as part of their online application. Private information will not be shared.
Google Hire Can Give A Tough Time To LinkedIn
Though LinkedIn is a well-established service as it is operational since 2003. Microsoft acquired it for approximately $26 billion last year keeping in mind the high popularity of the service. The active users for this app account almost 500 million which is a damn impressive figure. If you have a keen eye for detailing, you may have noticed the app’s integration with Microsoft Outlook and the Office Suite which provides the option to edit or view your resumes easily through MS Office.
Google is all backed up with its own services like Google Docs or Calendar etc. to give a head to head competition call to its rival, LinkedIn.
