Keyword Tutorial

Key word search

When you type your Key words you have 4 options for them to be interpreted

1. If you leave the tick box All ticked, your search will return only the candidate CVs or job descriptions containing all these key words. Eg: project engineer, will return all the CVs or jobs containing both of these words (but not necessarily one next to the other).

2. If you tick the box Any, your search will return the candidate CVs or job descriptions containing any of your key words. Eg. Surveyor QS, will return CVs or jobs containing only Surveyor, the ones containing only QS, and those containing both of these words.

3. Exact Phrase will return the candidate CVs or jobs containing your key words in the exact way you entered them Eg. Project Manager, will return the CVs or jobs containing Project Manager but not the ones only containing Project Management.

4. For the Boolean search, please see the Paragraph below

Boolean Search Tips

AND

Using this operator will return only the results with both the words Marketing AND design in either the title or the description.

OR

Example: Marketing OR Design

Using this operator will return results that contain either Marketing OR design in the title or the description.

AND NOT
Example: Marketing AND NOT design

Using the word AND NOT will return those results that contain the word marketing but will exclude those that contain the word design.

( )
