Enter your keywords into the search string separated by spaces. Selecting all of the words option means that your search will only return results that contain each and every word in your query. Selecting any of the words means that your search will return results that contain at least one of your search keywords. The search engine will show you the results that contain more of your keywords first.
It may be helpful to search for two or more words next to each other, such as system administrator. To accomplish this, simply wrap "double quotes" around the words. This syntax can also be used with Boolean searches. For example: "system administrator"
With a few exceptions, TechHotBed ignores all punctuation in your search except when using Boolean searches. If your keyword contains punctuation, include double quotes around the entire word. For example: search for "AS/400" instead of just AS/400.
Using the Keywords search box, enter the keywords for the job descriptions you would like to see. Keywords can be anything including job titles, skills, industry, company, or location. Keywords search the skills and the description of the job posting. Examples include programmer, database, Florida, project Manager, Java, and such. If you are going to use the Skills search, use Keywords for the skills you have such as Java, Unix, html, and such. Skills only search the skill section of the job posting.
Since employers post their own jobs, they only include the information that they want the JobSeeker to view. However, links to further information on specific companies is located in the Employer Directory. Also, most companies have corporate Web sites that you may find helpful.
When you do a job search you can save a specific search as an agent if you are logged into your MyTHB account. From the MyTHBWelcome page, click Create/view job search agents. Then click Create a new search agent. You are allowed up to five search agents. The JobAlert search agent page displays. Fill this page out with your skills and preferences and click Save. Results from your search resume will be e-mailed daily for you to review at you convenience.
Jobs will stay on THB for 30 days from the posted date. If a position is filled before the 30 days are up, it is the employer whether or not to take the posting down. As long as the posting is still on the site and the "Apply for this job" link is visible, then the employer is still accepting applications for the specific job.
In the upper left hand corner of the homepage, in the Job Seeker login box, click the forgot your password? link or click the MyTHB tab and click "forgot your password?" link. Fill in your e-mail address and a new password will be sent to you via e-mail.
