Job Search Tips

  •  Start by being as specific as possible
  •  If your initial search yields "no" or "few" results, add more general terms
  •  Avoid using common words such as: the, and, in, etc.

KEYWORD SEARCHES

The most common search technique is to simply type the words you wish to find into the search box. This type of search will result in all the pages which match either the entire phrase, or individual words. (Example: dual career resources)

→ "OR" SEARCHES

In order to find pages which contain either one word or another or both, place an OR (must capitalize) between the two words. (Example: history OR american studies)

"AND" SEARCHES

In order to find pages which only contain both words, place an AND (must capitalize) between the two words. (Example: art AND tenure)

→ EXACT PHRASE SEARCHES

In order to find pages which contain a specific phrase, place quotes around the search. (Example: "German language and literature")


JOBSEEKERS PLEASE NOTE:

All job application materials must be sent directly to the hiring institution. Greater Missouri HERC staff do not review applications or make hiring decisions and cannot answer questions about specific job postings.
