I was poking around on the careers site today, and I felt like the search functionality was a little limited/weak. Some examples:
- There is no way to search on a tag. So if you search for
[sql-server]you will get jobs that are tagged as that, but you will also get jobs that are tagged Oracle but mention SQL somewhere in the ad.
- There is no way to search job titles and job titles appear to have
little effect on the order of returned results. For example, if you
datathe first result or two might have
datain the title, but then it might be another 30 results or so before you see another job title with
When performing a search for
data on remote jobs, 101 results currently come up. Even though I'm only interested in the three jobs that have that in the title, I still need to sift through the other five pages of results to be sure there isn't anything else hiding in there I might be interested in.
I also think that the current functionality is good for finding jobs related to what you are searching for but aren't titled/tagged exactly as what you are searching for, but it might be nice to be able to limit on these when you want to.
Does anyone else think that searching by title and tag would be useful features?
