Most employers will do a Google search on your name before they hire you.
But soon, they could find out far more about you than you realise.
The firm is working on a tool, named ‘Google Hire’, which could allow recruiters to see your personal search history and YouTube accounts.
Google Hire will reportedly work in a similar way to LinkedIn.
Axios claims the tool is under testing, and that it will let employers post job listings, and accept and manage applications.
‘So far, several tech companies seem to be using (or testing) Google Hire, including Medisas, Poynt, DramaFever, SingleHop, and CoreOS,’ the site says.
However, rumours suggest it will only be available to use through personal Google accounts.
