Q: What is a Basic Search?

A:A basic search allows you to search the jobs database for job openings using a keyword search and/or the time frame of when the job opening became available. Five results will display at one time. Please be sure to click through all results pages. We highly recommend using the Advanced Search feature for more accurate job search results.

Please be sure to use the “Next” and “Previous” buttons to view all results, as only five job posting results will display at one time.

* Important Note: The search defaults to job openings posted within the last month. To increase the search results, select “Anytime” in the search options field.


Q: What is an Advanced Job Search?

A: An advanced search allows you to search the jobs database for job openings using a wider selection of criteria. You can narrow the results to create a more custom job search. By using Advanced Job Search, you can search for open jobs using keywords, locations, job families, job opening ID# and other helpful fields.

* Important Note: The search defaults to job openings posted within the last month. To increase the search results, select “Anytime” in the search options field.


Q: Can I save my search criteria to use in the future?

A: Yes. After entering in your search criteria, click on “Save Search.” Name your search for future reference and quicker searches. Click on “Save Search” to complete the process. You can access this, and all saved searches, in the future by logging in to your profile and selecting My Saved Searches.


Q: Can I be notified when new job openings are posted that match my search criteria?

A: Yes. When saving your search for future use (see Q&A above), you have the option to select “Use As Job Agent.” By selecting this function, you are asking to be notified when any new jobs are posted that match your set criteria. If you would like to receive email notifications when new jobs become available, check the box next to “Use As Job Agent” and enter a valid email address in the field next to “Send Job Agent notification to:” and you will be set up for notifications. You can opt out of notifications at any time.
