The new job Search experience will change how people search for employment opportunities

As of today, job seekers in Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa will be able to quickly and easily find employment opportunities and explore jobs from across the web.

During a job search, all related job postings across the web will be aggregated and brought to job seekers.

Also, job search will now be a continuous activity, as the feature allows users to pick up from where they left off during their job search.

There is a ‘get alerts’ button which allows users to get email notifications when new jobs matching their previous search appear.

Users will also be able to view at-a-glance all details about a job posting. These details include job title, location, whether it’s full-time, part-time or an internship and other that would be of interest.

There is also a Google Maps integration which job seekers to search for jobs at any place they can find on the map.

The map integration also allows the job seeker to use the feature to get the office of a prospective employer or get direction to get interview location from home.
