The UN Job List academy of SEARCH

Post by Sebastian » 06 Sep 2018, 08:59

Hi all,

since there are questions on how to make most of the Search capabilities of the UN Job List, let's open a thread where we can discuss the basics of search - what works, what doesn't how to get all the jobs you want without getting those that you are not interested in.

The basics are:
  • Search with as many keywords as you like e.g. "procurement human resources" to get jobs with either Procurement or HR in the job title
  • Search with an asterisk * as a wild-card e.g. "intern*" to get jobs that say "international" or "interns" or "internship" etc.
  • Use "+" or "-" to include / exclude terms
  • Use "( )" to group search terms. E.g. "+temp* +(procurement administration*)" to get all temporary procurement + all temporary administration jobs.
I'm Sebastian from the UN Job List. I know about the UN Job List and also a little about the UN in general.
