"Google for Jobs", as Google is calling it, isn't available just yet but will be out in the coming weeks.

Pichai announced the new feature during Google's I/O presentation, where it teased a variety of its newest tools.

According to Google, "almost half of USA employers say they still have issues filling open positions", while job seekers aren't necessarily aware of listings available near them. Pichar said more than half of US employers struggle to fill open positions.

What makes the service interesting is that it's leveraging Google's machine learning smarts to understand how job titles are related and cluster them together. Pichai talked about why the company felt the need for Google Jobs as nearly half of United States employers were having issues filling open positions while job seekers weren't even aware about a job opening.

Users can then narrow down their job search with features like the date it was posted, and if it is part-time or full-time.

Instead of trolling various job listing sites, job seekers can just type "retail jobs" or "product manager jobs in Nevada" directly into the search field.

Google for Jobs will be embedded in the search engine to help people look for jobs across experience and wage levels, and the company will be partnering with Monster, CareerBuilder, LinkedIn and Glassdoor to provide more context for its results.

Google has announced its all-new Google for Job initiative which will help job seekers find a job right from the Search.

The search engine will have a number of tools that will help you find the right jobs for you.

"I'm personally enthusiastic for this initiative because it addresses an important need and taps our core capabilities as a company from searching and organizing information to A.I. and machine learning", said Pichai.

Partnering with LinkedIn, Monster, Glassdoor and Facebook, the new feature will debut in the U.S. in the coming weeks.
