Use the refine and filter sidebar: You can narrow down your search results further using various criteria, including: Desired salary; Job hunter status (e.g. Immediately available); Preferred job type (e.g. Full time, part time); Employer name(s); Industry; Availability, and others.
Add more keywords: If you're getting too many candidates in your search results, you can add more keywords to your search. We suggest you add one or two at a time and see how you go. Think about which words you would expect to see in the resume of a person who would suit the role. You could add skills, qualifications, and/or specialised areas of expertise.
For example: Keywords: project manager enterprise software
Every result will contain the words "project", "manager", "enterprise", and "software".
Use "quotes": You can also use "quotes" to force LinkMe to look out for a phrase (or type these words into the "Exact phrase" box). This will narrow your results as only resumes with your exact phrase will be found.
For example: Keywords: "project manager" will only return results with the exact phrase "project manager".
Use the "job title" keywords field: Sometimes the context of a word can make a big difference to the quality of your results. If you've tried searching for a property developer, you've probably found many software or game developers. To focus your search, you need to see "property developer" in the candidate's job title.
For example: Keywords: All these words in their job title: property developer
Every result will contain "property" and "developer" somewhere among all their job titles.
Exclude results with "NOT": You can exclude results with certain words: use NOT
Use the special keyword NOT to exclude resumes with a certain keyword or phrase in them.
For example: Keywords: accountant MYOB NOT audit
Every result will contain the words "accountant" and "MYOB". None will contain "audit".
Turn off synonyms: The LinkMe search automatically matches for synonyms (for example "CEO", "Chief Executive Officer", "Chief Executive", "MD", and "Managing Director" all count as exactly the same thing). If you find your results include inappropriate matches, you can eliminate any synonyms by putting an equals sign in front of the keyword or phrase in question.
For example: Keywords: =BDM
Every result will contain the word "BDM". The automatically generated synonym "Business Development Manager" will now not be included in the search criteria.
