Boolean Help

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 job descriptions containing all these key words. Eg: project engineer, will return all the job 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 job descriptions containing any of your key words. Eg. Surveyor QS, will return jobs containing only Surveyor, the ones containing only QS, and those containing both of these words.

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

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