[Update: Sunsetting] Google Hire is a New Recruiting Application for G Suite Customers
At Google I/O this year, we learned about a new project Google took on to solve a job recruitment issue that they have noticed over the last few years. The company calls it Google for Jobs, and its goal is to improve the experience for both employers as well as those who are looking for a job. The company has partnered with the likes of LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor and Facebook to accomplish this goal, and you can see the feature live right now in a Google search.
This doesn’t mean their efforts are over either, and Google is taking things a step further for their G Suite customers with a new application called Google Hire. They’ll be tapping into the infrastructure of what they have already laid out with Google for Jobs, and are adding managerial tools on top of the platform. The application platform integrates directly into other G Suite applications such as Gmail and Google Calendar so it’s much easier to keep things organized.
This means you can communicate with potential hires from the application or from Gmail, and everything will be synced. You can schedule interviews that will appear directly in Google Calendar with information such as contact details and questions the interviewer should focus on. All of this and more will be tracked and included in a pipeline directly in the Google Hire application so you’ll be able to analyze and visualize the data directly in Google sheets.
The application and service is being made available to United States based G Suite customers which have under 1,000 employees right now. However, if you’re not sure if the service is right for your company then you can go here to request a demo, or simply go here to learn more about the platform in general.
Google announced that they will sunset Hire by Google on September 1st, 2020, a little over 3 years after it was launched. The company says they will focus their resources on other products in the Google Cloud portfolio. After their next bill, Hire customers will no longer be charged for the service. Users can export their data from now until the end of the term.
