Google has its eyes on talent, and is still gunning to help out seeking talent find the position they're looking for.
It rolled out Cloud Talent Solution (formerly Cloud Job Discovery), a development platform for job search workloads that factors in a range of preferences to match employers with qualified applicants, last August. And recently, building on early momentum, it’s introducing enhanced multilanguage support and new features in Cloud Talent Solution’s search API, including search filters for walking and cycling commutes.
They’re available to any of the more than 4,000 sites already using Cloud Talent Solution.
“Since launching Cloud Talent Solution last year, we’ve been working closely with employers and job boards to help improve the discoverability of jobs, as well as matching those jobs with the right candidates,” Google Product Manager Jennifer Su wrote in a blog post. “Companies around the globe have told us that reaching a larger talent pool is consistently top of mind, and we also hear from job seekers about their unique job search and employment needs.”
Toward that end, the aforementioned new filters let Cloud Talent Solution customers like Cox Communications, Encompass Health, and College Recruiter enable users to seek out jobs easily accessible via bike or walking paths. Su said the additions were inspired by research showing that biking is often the only commuting option for those living in low-income communities.
“Cities across the country have started to prioritize their cyclists with added investments in dedicated bike lanes and multi-use paths,” she said. “Outside the U.S., in Copenhagen, 41 percent of commuters commute by cycling, and in Barcelona, it is very common to walk to work.”
