For now, Google has made it available in the United States for every job category. To maintain updated inventory of jobs, Google gets information from other job search domains like Monster, LinkedIn, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor, and Facebook. The tech giant plans on adding more sources in the coming days.

In its blog post, Googler - Nick Zakrasek writes:

We’re working with a number of organizations from across the industry to bring you the most comprehensive listing of jobs—including LinkedIn, Monster, WayUp, DirectEmployers, CareerBuilder, Glassdoor and Facebook. This means you’ll see job postings from these sites and many others from across the web as soon as they’re posted.

To ensure even more jobs are listed over time, we’re publishing open documentation for all jobs providers, from third-party platforms or direct employers, big or small, detailing how to make their job openings discoverable in this new feature.
