SEARCH FOR JOBS
How do I perform a keyword search?
The Keyword search field is a powerful tool that can help you find the exact jobs you are looking for.
You can search jobs for a single word or a phrase. Keyword searches effectively search as though a wildcard were appended to each search term. Thus a keyword search for engineer also finds engineering, engineered, engineers. Keyword searches will find jobs that contain matching words or phrases in any searchable job field including job title, job description, etc.
Avoid using quotes or punctuation such as commas.
You can use boolean operators in the Keyword field to get more specific search results. These searches do an "exact match" search. That is, a boolean search for asp OR engineer finds only those exact forms of the two words. Use the * wildcard with search terms in boolean searches if you want other forms of the words considered in your results. Searching for asp OR engineer* will include engineering, engineered, engineers, etc, just as searching for engineer would. Please note that non-English users must still use the English boolean operators. For example, if you are performing a boolean search in French, you cannot type "Unix ET NT", you must type "Unix AND NT".
|Search trick (Boolean operator)||What it does||Example|
|AND||Finds multiple words or phrases.||java AND basic
|OR||Finds either one word or the other.||java OR basic
|AND NOT||Finds the first word on a page that does not include the second word.||java AND NOT basic
|Finds words that start with or end with your search string.||tele*
Will find "telecom", "telecommute", "telecommunications", and "telephone". Do NOT use the asterisk to specify the first character of a string.
Will find bi-lingual, bilingual, multi-lingual, multilingual, etc.
|( )||Groups words or phrases. Other search terms can appear inside parentheses.||(java AND basic) AND NOT engineer
Will find a page with the words "java" and "basic", but not "engineer". Do NOT use ( ) around single words.
