To Find Unspecific Jobs Near You
If you are just in search of anything to hold onto for a while, this section is for you.
What I mean here is, you don’t have any particular interest in mind, just looking for options to make a choice. How this works is, the Jobs suggestions will be jobs that are near you, not jobs from far.
Step 1: On your location on your device, in most cases, it is in your drop-down menu from your screen. When you put on this location, Google will be able to determine where you are and give you a job suggestion around you.
Step 2: On your data/network/bandwidth and head to Google.com.
Step 3: In the search bar, type “Jobs Near Me” or “Jobs”.
Step 4: A list of Jobs will appear, go ahead and scroll to find the job that suits you, click on see more to See More job opportunities.
To Find Specific Jobs
Here, we are to find a particular job. Let’s say You are looking for a Software Engineering Job on Facebook In USA. They are two methods to do this, the first is almost similar to the above steps then something deeper.
Step 0: Follow the steps in the topic above until step 4
Step 5: Google offers you the tool to filter the jobs listed there.
Click on “More Filter” then customize the search engine to get you what you want.
A Deeper Way To Find Specific Jobs With Google
Here we are going to customize the Google search engine to work for us. This topic demands a real understanding of how Google search engine works.
Visit this link to learn a thing or two on how a google search engine works.
Our aim here is to get something like this in Google search box
“Managerial assistant” job (lagos OR Calabar) bank -“Eco Bank Nigeria” -site:hotnigerianjobs.com/ -site:myjobmag.com -site:jobberman.com -site:linkedin.com”
Let’s break it down, I’ll call it functions. Let’s say this was a search query by Mr. Gilbert and NOTE: Everything including symbols matter
Function 1: “Managerial assistant” = This function tells google the type of job you want, in this case, Mr. Gilbert wants a job as a “Managerial Assistant” so he types that into the search bar and yes, with the quotations.
Function 2: (lagos OR calabar) = Mr. Gilbert wants to work in either Lagos state or Calabar city, so he tells google by adding it there.
Function 3: bank = Gilbert is equipped with banking skills, he is pretty sure that he has what it takes to work in the bank, so this function tells google that it’s a bank work he wants. So Gilbert here wants a Managerial Work In A Bank Located In Calabar And/Or Lagos.
Function 4: -“Eco Bank Nigeria” = Gilbert probably has beef with Eco Bank and wants nothing to with them, or he is not a lover of Eco Bank, so he lets google know by adding the – (minus) in front of the quotations before the name.
Function 5: -site:hotnigerianjobs.com/ -site:myjobmag.com -site:jobberman.com -site:linkedin.com” = This function tells google NOT TO SUGGEST JOBS FROM THIS SITES. In Nigeria, these sites are sites were job employers post their jobs too, so Gilbert will prefer jobs directly from his employer’s site, Maybe Mr. Gilbert doesn’t trust these sites.
This query is really complicating but Google is a badass so heck yeah!! They’ve got you covered.
This site here has a lot to say on this trick, check them out.
