1. What is the Boolean search?
Shortlist allows you to search for candidates using keywords.
When you type a keyword in the designated field, we will browse all the candidate's CV registered on shortlist at JobTeaser.
If the key word is found in the candidate's CV, then this profile will appear in the list of matches after the research.
To help you make more precise searches, we have integrated the Boolean value operators "OR" "AND" "NOT"
By using one or more of these value operators, you can perform a more efficient Boolean search and obtain the most relevant profiles and better qualified candidates for your job offer.
2. How to effectively execute a Boolean search?
- Start by asking yourself what specific skills you are looking for in a candidate.
- Then start to define the set of words related to the soft/hard skills you are looking for.
NOTE: Keep in mind that candidates may have submitted their resumes in English, so using French or English keywords may be an advantage!
TIP : don't hesitate to try and use different keywords until you have found the best matches for the profile you are looking for. This is the power of ShortList tool!
