Using search on home page
Keywords are words, phrases, and terms that you can enter to describe educational and professional experiences, skills, and company names. They are used to search for Jobs containing those words in their Descriptions. By typing in various keywords, you will maximize your chances of retrieving Jobs that most accurately match your search.

Start your job search with the keywords that relate to the type of job you are looking for. They could be the skills that you have, designations of the jobs that you want, or the qualifications that you hold. In addition you could be giving the city name, company that you want to work for etc.

Example

  • If you are a graduate, with some experience in a call center looking for a job in Dubai – you should give "BPO Team Leader Dubai" in the keyword box.
  • If you are a graduate, with some experience in a call center looking for a job in Dubai – you should give "BPO Team Leader Dubai" in the keyword box.
    company – you should give "Internet graduate Dubai" in the keyword box.
  • If you are a qualified network administrator, with the required technical qualifications – you should give - "Network administrator" in the keyword box.
Tips

  • Multiple search words will give you more results.
  • If you are searching for phrases, then use " " around the phrase.
    Example: "Sales Manager" "Art Director" etc.
  • If you wish to avoid some words in the job description, then write those words with a minus in front of the job.
    For example:: Sales -FMCG will give you jobs with the word sales in them, but only those without FMCG
  • If you have entered a typo or a mistake in the search box, an automatic alert will be displayed on the results page with a possible correction.
    For example: If you have typed jav, the system will give an alert saying . are you looking for java?

The keywords that you give are searched for in the Title of the job, Key Skills asked for in the job and the entire text of the job description in that order.

The jobs are sorted on relevance by default. The most relevant ones appear at the top.
