The company made the announcement Tuesday, revealing that the program is aimed toward midsize businesses looking for fresh talent.

It’s an extension of G Suite, and it allows employers to organize candidates’ contact, resumes and calendar invites. They can even share their feedback on a job hopeful’s profile with other bosses. However, only the information a contender voluntarily gives is passed on. 

“Google Calendar and Gmail work seamlessly with Hire, so we've been able to reduce one-off emails and keep our communications in one place,” Google said in a statement.

The search engine site tested the tool for more than a year before offering it to the public. And in May, it released Google for Jobs, a platform for job seekers.
