What is “Google For Jobs”?

Google For Jobs is a new way in which Google are displaying and productizing the structured data in the Google SERPs…

Put simply: it is a search engine specifically for job vacancies.

What makes this product superior to the other job hunting offerings out there will be how Google will provides the most relevant search results to the user based upon their previous search preferences.

I have given it a test drive myself. Google For Jobs will surely change the future of the job search. Its slick and intuitive user interface will be a breath of fresh air for job hunters.
