Job searching ­Basic and Advanced techniques

A basic job search can be found in many places throughout the career center. Our main page features the basic search at the top of the page. To use this type of search, enter a keyword such as a job title, career field, or company name into the “What” field and also enter a location into the “Where” field, then click “search jobs”

If you're looking for a more in depth job search, on the left side of the Search Results page select Search and enter Keywords and the Fields necessary for your search. 

If you’re looking to narrow down search results, use the Browse feature on the left side of the Search Results page.

Be sure to perform multiple searches using a variety of search parameters, as employers may not always post their jobs in areas you think. If you are not getting good results, try broadening your search by reducing the number of parameters used.
