Learn about the three ways to search in Recruit: My Company’s Postings, Paste JD, and Advanced Search.



About searching in Recruit

In TalentNeuron Recruit, there are three ways to build a search:

  • My Company’s Postings allows you to analyze your company’s job postings in one click. We automatically translate the text of a job posting into a search, which you can later adjust.

  • Paste JD allows you to search by pasting the text of a job description. As with My Company’s Postings, we automatically translate the job description text into a search that you can edit.

  • Advanced Search allows you to build a search from scratch using our search filters. This is a great search option if you have a grasp on how our search filters work.



My Company’s Postings

My Company’s Postings allows you to start a search using a job posting from your company that we found online. We automatically translate the text of the job posting into a search that you can edit.


If you don’t see a recent job posting from your company listed in the options, it’s likely because there’s a delay of a few days between when a job is posted and when it appears in our system. In these cases, we recommend using the Paste JD feature.


  1. Click My Company’s Postings in the blue banner or in the gray bar. 

  2. You will see a list of job postings from your company. You can narrow this list by country, title, or city using the filters at the top.

  3. Hover over the posting you want to create a search from. Clicking the title will open up the job description associated with that posting. Clicking the orange Analyze button will begin the search. 

  4. On the results page, consider validating your search results.



Paste JD

Paste JD allows you to start a search using the text of a job description you have on hand. We automatically translate the text into a search that you can edit.


  1. Copy the text of a job description. It’s often best to leave out the parts of the job description that aren’t relevant to the position, like the company’s mission statement.

  2. Click Paste JD. 


  3. Enter the title and location of the job. (Selecting the metropolitan statistical area – or MSA yields the best results.) Then, paste the job description text into the central box.

  4. Click Analyze.


  5. On the results page, consider validating your search results.



Advanced Search

Advanced Search allows you to build a search from scratch. With a blank search, you are seeing data for all jobs in the country you’ve selected. By applying search filters, you slowly narrow down these results until you’re only seeing data for the specific talent you’re interested in. 

  1. Click Advanced Search.


  2. Begin applying your search filters.



Validate your search results

Whether you begin your search with My Company’s Postings, Paste JD, or Advanced Search, you’ll want to validate your search before viewing the full report. This ensures that the results you’re seeing are for the talent that you have in mind.

  1. If you began your search with My Company’s Postings or Paste JD, click Edit search in the upper-right corner. This will open a section that allows you to preview the results. If you began your search using Advanced search, your will see this section while you build your search.


  2. While looking at the data preview section – top titles, past employers, and top skills – ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do these look like titles of people you’d want to hire?

  • Do these look like the companies that hire talent in this location?

  • Do these look like the types of skills this talent would have?

  • Does the above look 75% correct? Inevitably, a few irrelevant titles, skills, and companies will appear in these results. If the results in this area look mostly right, that’s a good indication that your search is good to go. 

       

  1. If the data looks mostly right, click Yes, view analysis. If the data looks outright wrong, update your search by adjusting the filters


  2. For a basic search, we recommend adding 1 location, 1 occupation, and 1-3 skills skills or certifications and avoiding redundant criteria. For example, the "Auditor" occupation requires a 4-year degree, so also selecting the "Bachelor's" filter isn't necessary.

    Generally speaking, the more criteria you add, the narrower your search and the lower your supply and demand.
