Hunting for a new job is now as easy as a Google search.

The search giant added a feature to find results that includes job listings from across the web. Starting Tuesday, users are shown its career opportunities when they search for job-related phrases like “jobs near me.”

Users can customize their results with certain filters depending on the job they’re looking for or why they may be switching jobs, CNBC reports.

In addition to posts on company’s pages, Google pulls together listings from almost every career site: Monster, LinkedIn, Facebook, WayUp, DirectEmployers, and CareerBuilder. By clicking on a listing, people can read the full job post with company ratings from Indeed or Glassdoor.

The new widget can filter listings by employer, location, or industry. If someone’s looking for a shorter commute, the results can be tweaked to show the closest openings, along with an estimated commute time.

Google’s job search lets users save their queries, so users can get alerts when new listings are posted that the position he or she is looking for.
