Google Maps’ FREE GIFT to Recruiters — Get Candidates Out of the Parking Lot and Into Your Office to Interview

#googlemaps #googlemobile

Each & every recruiter needs to add their corporate floor plans/blue prints/ floor directories to Google Maps INDOORS. That’s right, INDOORS! Moments ago it was announced that the next generation of Google Maps MOBILE (Google Maps 6.0 for Android users only, sorry iPhone) will include floor plans for airports, shopping malls and retail stores.

If you want to get your floor plans added to the application, visit

. The list of beta partners in Japan & the US included: Mall of America, IKEA, The Home Depot, select Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, Daimaru, Taskashimaya and Mitsukoshi locations, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Narita International (NRT), among others.

HOW IT WORKS: Your phone registers your GPS location as a blue dot on the mobile map, so you can track your progress and determine if you are headed in the correct direction INSIDE the building. Watch an IKEA demo .

Have you leaped ahead to think what this means for recruiters? Instead of just using Google Maps to find your office for a face to face interview, your candidate could use Google Maps INDOORS to ensure that they make their way through your office complex maze and into the lobby to meet you. No more excuses for tardiness! This is a wonderful use of technology.

So what are you waiting for? Go help improve Google Maps – upload your floor plan and line it up with the satellite images in Google.
