Seattle-based PayScale, specializing in cloud compensation data and software, recently collaborated with Google to yield compensation data for jobhunters in its own and others’ search engines, letting individuals secure jobs faster and more efficiently.
Google Search made an enhanced search experience available to consumers earlier in 2017, according to PayScale, which stated that job listings have increased by over 60 percent. Google is involved in supplementing the tool with extra features such as salary information that can be viewed according to region, experience, education and other factors.
“Looking for a job can be very time intensive, so people want salary information in order to determine whether a position is right for them in the earliest stages of evaluation,” Lydia Frank, vice president of content strategy at PayScale, said. “We are thrilled to work with Google to offer our rich, real time compensation data to millions of job seekers as they search for a job that’s right for them.”
Susan Cadrecha, communications manager at Google Search, stated that her company’s approach to salary information rests on the belief that such data is critical to user experience.
“We are committed to providing useful and relevant information based on people’s search queries, and we believe PayScale’s salary data will improve the job search experience and connect people with their next job more easily,” Cadrecha said.
