How to search (Boolean Search) and view resume in Dice – www.dice.com?
Dice has provided options to search by a word [JAVA], more than one word [“JAVA DEVELOPER”]and combination of words [("JAVA DEVELOPER" OR "JAVA PROGRAMMER") AND "ORACLE DEVELOPER"] by using Boolean operators such as OR, AND, NOT. If you want to narrow down your search, you can use different filters provided below to search resumes for a given position.
You can search by desired position (oracle dba), qualification (MS), work authorization (H1B, GREEN CARD, EAD, CITIZEN etc.), location (Chicago, Illinois), days back (old resume), recent employer (based on employers), and select candidates from vendors. You can also select by preferences like (Security clearance, employment type, travel preferences, annual salary, hourly rate, minimum education, school or institution etc.).
Since the words or phrases you search are case sensitive you either go with upper case or lower case. When you get a requirement, you analyze the TITLE and think about the different titles that are linked with that title. In the following example, we have mentioned the phrases in upper case. In the following example, Hadoop developers would have posted their resume in Dice.com with different titles like Hadoop developer or Hadoop programmer or Hadoop consultant. So we included those title in double quotes and separate them by OR clause. If you are not able to search by title, then read about that technology in search engines and then do a different search.
At times, in my experience, even though your "search options" is right, you will not be able to see your search results (view resumes). There are two possible reasons for that.
- DICE doesn't have resumes based on your search.
- DICE sometimes doesn't work properly and because of that, you may not see your results. In that situation, try to search DICE after some time.
How we use Boolean Operators AND, OR, NOT in DICE:
When more than one word is there, enclose those words within double quotes, so that you will get the results on what you are searching.
Use parenthesis wherever applicable. In the following example, we have grouped the keywords within OR clause with PARENTHESIS and we connect with another skill JAVA by using AND clause.
Example 1: Requirement: HADOOP DEVELOPER
"HADOOP DEVELOPER" OR "HADOOP PROGRAMMER" OR "HADOOP CONSULTANT"
Since multiple words are there, we have included within double quotes.
Example 2: Requirement: HADOOP DEVELOPER with JAVA
("HADOOP DEVELOPER" OR "HADOOP PROGRAMMER" OR "HADOOP CONSULTANT") AND JAVA
Since multiple words and different skill sets are there, we have included double quotes and parenthesis.
Example 3: Requirement: HADOOP DEVELOPER with JAVA or J2EE
("HADOOP DEVELOPER" OR "HADOOP PROGRAMMER" OR "HADOOP CONSULTANT") AND (JAVA OR J2EE)
Example 4: Requirement: ORACLE APPLICATION DBA
(“ORACLE APPS DBA” OR “ORACLE APPLICATIONS DBA”) AND NOT “ORACLE DBA”
This search will find out oracle applications dba alone AND NOT oracle DBA.
