Google last year started adding more job search features to its Google search engine. Now Google is making it easier for job searchers to find work-from-home positions. Users can now search for jobs in Google and filter their location to “work from home” to find remote jobs.

Finding job openings for remote positions through conventional job portals can be a pain most of the times. Jobs are usually filtered by location first, so one ends up having to conduct a lot of different searches. To help alleviate this problem, Google Search, which also lists job openings (formerly called ‘Google for Jobs’), has added tools to help both remote employers and employees find each other.

“Through a number of user studies, we learned that most remote jobs were not clearly labeled as such,” Google product manager Jennifer Su writes in today’s announcement. “And our customers have told us it is difficult to accurately detect and return remote opportunities when users enter ‘work from home’ or related queries into their search box. By offering this capability to our customers, we hope to make remote work opportunities more discoverable to job seekers who need them.”

Google is using Schema.org markup to determine job locations and requirements so it can better identify telecommuting positions and geographic limits. To populate job listings in Search, Google has partnered with ZipRecruiter, Working Nomads, and We Work Remotely. If employers, staffing agencies, or other job boards want access to these listings, they can do so with Cloud Talent Solution. So if you’re not comfortable with Schema markup, listing your remote job openings on either of those sites should help them get found with Google’s new filter.
