Coming soon: Include commute time in your job search

Commute time

In the coming weeks, CareerBuilder's Job Search mobile app will let you include expected commute time into your search criteria.

It's probably hard to think of the last time you needed to go to a new place and didn't first look the address up on your phone. After all, we're walking around with apps that can tell us how to get somewhere and how long it will take. Why wouldn't you use that information to make your life easier?

That convenience is coming to your job search.

In the coming weeks, CareerBuilder's Job Search mobile app [Play App Store] will let you include expected commute time into your search criteria. By using Google Cloud Jobs API, the commute search functionality can either use your mobile device's GPS (with your permission) or a specific address as the starting point. Then, by choosing your mode of transportation (walking, car or public transit) and desired commute time, you can ensure you're receiving the job search results that fit your lifestyle.

Location has always been a major factor in the job search—and for some people the most important factor. We're excited to bring the power of a more custom search to your hands.
