Add a new one to Google Cemetery.
Google has revealed that it will shut down Google Hire, the job search system it launched just two years ago.
Google built Hire in an effort to simplify the hiring process, with a workflow that integrated things like searching for applicants, scheduling interviews and providing feedback on potential hires in Google's G Suite (Search / Gmail / Calendar / Docs, etc.)  It was built mostly for small to medium sized businesses, with a price ranging from $ 200 to $ 400 per month, depending on how many G Suite licenses you needed.
Hire came after Google bought Bebop – a company started by VMWare founder Diane Greene ̵
In an email to customers, Google says:
While Hire has been successful, we focus our resou rces on other products in the Google Cloud portfolio. We are deeply grateful to our customers, as well as the champions and champions who have joined and supported us along the way.
On the upside: it does not get the ax immediately . You can actually use it for a whole year; Google says it will not be completed until September 1, 2020. Just don't expect new features to be added.
Google also notes that it intends to stop paying for the product in the meantime, saying in a supportive FAQ that customers will not see additional costs for Google Hire after their next billing cycle.
