If the company name or job title includes multiple words, use double quotation marks. For example:

title:"business development"


Searching for complex phrases

You can also use complex phrases to fine-tune your search.

For example, to return all jobs that contain the term healthcare and either the word manager or director, type the following in the what box:

To improve your results, you can continue to revise the search as follows:

(manager OR director) and (healthcare OR pharmaceutical) NOT sales
