LinkedIn may have been the number one destination for all your HR needs, but Google is gearing up to release a job application tracking platform called Hire.
Hire (yes, it’s self explanatory), is a job application tracking platform currently being tested by Google. While the functionality in question is only a subset of what LinkedIn, it’s still a solid step for Google, and one that can help clear the way against competitors such as Lever.
Users will reportedly be able to post job openings, accept applications, and manage the application process directly through the platform. It will be interesting to see how Hire could potentially integrate with other Google products. However, concerns have been raised regarding the way Google will handle (or use) its vast array of user search data, to tweak the product, or disclose anything to hiring managers.
