Within the Position Requirement and Candidate Mining search page, there are 12 search filters in addition to 3 location focused options.
To achieve best results, we recommend you start with a broad search, then make refinements one by one from that point. The reason being, starting with a very narrow search could cause you to potentially miss qualified candidates.
If you are having issues rendering your desired search results, we also suggest trying various combinations of search fields to obtain the optimal results based on the position and other defining characteristics of the search.
Here is an example demonstrating the best practices mentioned above:
Let’s say you are hiring for an “Accounting Project Manager” in New York, NY.
Search Configuration and Search Result Examples
- Title / Keywords: Accounting Project Manager
- Result: 95 Candidates
Now, let’s play around with the combinations of search fields…
- Title /Keywords: Project Manager
- Job Function: Accounting
- Results: 291 Candidates
As you can see, when we segmented the position into the Title / Keywords and Job Function search produced significantly more qualified candidates.
A further expansion of this search could include the use of the Industry Experience filter. For example, using the following criteria returns an even greater volume of potential candidates:
- Title / Keywords: Project Manager
- Industry Experience: Accounting & Accounting Services
- Results: 706 Candidates
Utilizing various filters in differing combinations can provide significant differences in results. Try multiple combinations to ensure you are obtaining the optimal results from your search efforts.
Keep in mind, it is always best to start broad and refine from there.
