Job Search Tips

To perform a search: Pinpoint a job posting by defining the search criteria that match your ideal opportunity.

Keyword field: The Keyword field supports Wildcard searching. You must use an asterisk * as a wildcard character and it must be used within quotation marks (e.g., "publish*" will return publish, publishing, publisher, etc.).

It is important to note that when using the Keyword field you must identify the type of search by selecting from the pull-down list of search types.

Any of the words: If you choose this type, the system will search for job descriptions that contain any of the words you have entered.

All of the words: If you choose this type, the system will search for job descriptions that contain all of the words you have entered.

Exact phrase: If you choose this type, the system will search for job descriptions that contain all of the words you have entered, in the exact order you have entered them.

Boolean Search: If you choose this type, you may enter Boolean searches in the text entry fields (City and Keyword). To use any Boolean operators, you must first select Boolean Search from the pull-down menu.

  • To specify words that must all appear in the search results, use and or & between the words (e.g., publishing and editor).
  • To specify words any of which may appear in the search results, use or or | between the words (e.g., publishing or editor).
  • To specify a word that must not appear in the search results, use and not before the word (e.g., publishing and not editor).
  • You can utilize parenthesis () to separate keyword subsets (e.g., (publishing or editor) and magazine).
  • In order to get expression matching, use quotation marks. For example, to find project manager positions, search on " project manager" This will return incidences where project and manager are adjacent to each other in the description field.
