How to search for jobs on
CCJobNet.com logo

After you enter your user name and password into CCJobNet.com, the Search Jobs page will appear. As you move around in CCJobNet.com you can always get back to the Search Jobs page by clicking on "Search Jobs" in the blue tool bar.

You can search for jobs by occupation, location, job type, or keywords. You can search for jobs based on one or more of these search options.

The first search option is "Occupation." The occupations listed in the scroll down box represent broad occupational areas. You can search by as many as five of these occupational areas at one time. To select more than one occupational area, hold down the 'Ctrl' or 'Command' key and click as many as five occupations.

The second search option is "Location." Location provides an opportunity to select by geographic areas. You can search by as many as five geographic areas at one time. For more than one geographic area, hold down the 'Ctrl' or 'Command' key and click up to five choices.

The third search option is "Job Type." Job Type allows you to search for full-time, part-time, full-time or part-time, seasonal part-time, seasonal full-time, internship, or co-op jobs. You are allowed only one Job Type selection per search. Click on your choice.

The fourth search option is "Keywords." Separate your Keywords with spaces. There are three different ways you can use the Keywords search. Use the drop-down menu to select the type of Keywords search you would like.

The three keywords search choices are, all words, any words, and exact phrase.
Orange square All Words - An "All Word" search will only return jobs that contain all of the words
Orange square Any Words - An "Any Word" search will return all jobs that contain at least one of the
words. This will return the most results.
Orange square Exact Phrase - If you are looking for multiple words right next to each other, like
"computer programmer", choose the "Exact Phrase" search.

You can also decide whether or not you would like CCJobNet.com to show you job listings from employment agencies. If you would like to see jobs from employment agencies, click the box next to "Show employment agency listings?" If you do not, leave the box unchecked.

After you have selected the criteria by which you want to search for jobs, click on the Search button at the bottom of the page. If you want to erase your selected search criteria, click on the Clear Search button.

You have the option of saving your search criteria. This is handy if you are going to search for jobs based on the same criteria over a period of time.

If you would like to save a search, simply execute the search and click the "Save This Search" link at the top of any of the pages that appear as a result of your search. You will be asked to enter a name to describe the search. Try to name it something descriptive. A descriptive name is important. Otherwise it will be difficult to remember the criteria you selected for any given search.

Back at the search page, you will see your saved searches at the bottom of the page. You can save as many searches as you like and you may delete them at any time.
