How do I search by industry rather than by keyword?

Your search results and job matches are automatically filtered through the Role and Specialties you have selected on your Job Preferences page. You will want to make sure you list the Specialties that best suit your career goals in order to see the most relevant possible job matches going forward.

To find out how to do that, please visit our FAQ article here:

These job matches are not relevant, how do I change them? 

 

To filter positions by Industry you will need to first run a search, then use the Search Filters on the Left column to limit your search to a specific Industry (I.e. Healthcare, Finance & Insurance, or Transportation). Your Industry you wish to work in is different than what the function of your job would be. For example a Role in Sales could translate to any Industry. 

How to search:

  1. Click on the Jobs tab along the top bar of any pagemceclip3.png
  2. Enter your search criteria in the boxes providedmceclip4.png
  3. Click the blue search buttonmceclip5.png
  4. Optional: After your search results load, you can use the left-hand column to refine your search by Industry, Position Level, Years of Experience, Locations, Date Posted, or Company. Simply click to check off the Industries you want included. By default all Industries are shown.
