Job search also searches for location

It has become very apparent for me, that when using the Job search function, it would list everything including results containing similar phrases. Read: for example, when searching for "Hungarian", I get job posts with "Hungarian" in their title, but also jobs, where client location is Hungary and the job has got absolutely nothing to do with Hungarian. Why is that? It makes a lot of false alerts for me, including e-mail notifications.

I totally agree with you Gabor. The search tool is helpful, but it definitely has room for improvement.

Hi Gabor, 

 

You are right. I am a writer whenever I get recommendations of designer, developer jobs. It is not effective for the us. I do spend my time to research jobs where I need to apply.

It looks like the programmers here are having problems with setting up a simple logical relationship between the search conditions (so as to only display the exact phrase in results, not every single word).

There is a flip side to that as well. If you use the filter for location, i.e. United States, and the client doesn't indicate a location (although it would be included in the client profile), you don't see their posting even if it fits the rest of your criteria. I only found that out by the fact that I got an invitation to interview on a job that I hadn't recalled seeing. When I investigated to see how I missed it, that is when I realized he hadn't listed a location in the posting, even though he was in the US, so it hadn't shown up in my search. I would think that would be an easy fix, but for now I have turned off the location search and have to deal with sorting out the ones that are on the opposite side of the world and don't really fit with my criteria. It would be helpful if the locaiton field was a required one for job postings - even just the country - the same way we are required to include it in our profile.

 

Just my 2 cents on the subject ๐Ÿ™‚
