Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I login to the careers site as an employer, then on the search page de-select everything -- so no tags, no location, no type or students -- why doesn't the count of candidates found go to zero?

It seems like the semantics for the Type checkboxes should be "someone with one or more of the following attributes". But with no attributes checked and a non-zero result count, does that mean many candidates don't have any boxes checked in their profiles? What's happening is not obvious or intuitive.

funny - I'd expect that if you did NOT filter, you'd get everyone – warren Dec 17 '09 at 12:06
except you aren't applying filters (negatives)--the way the selection system is setup, you're asking for matches (positives) – RickNZ Dec 19 '09 at 23:46

Thanks for the heads up - this will be in the next deployment.
