KEYWORDS
"Keywords" are specific words or phrases that are used to search for job. A search looks for these words in job posting and if it finds them, pulls it up for a user to take a look at--it's the same way you do research on the Internet The more keywords that are used--the more closely the job will match to what you're really looking for. For example, if you type the word 'cars' into a search engine, you'll get literally millions of sites back at you. But if you type the word '1969 Volkswagen Beetle', you're going to get much fewer and much more useful results.

Tips for using keywords
You can use any mix of upper and lower case characters; the keyword field isn't case sensitive.

Skip using such common words as a , an, as, etc. and punctuation marks--period (.), semi-colon (;), colon (:). The search ignores them. So if you typed Word for Windows, you could get back that plus Word and Windows.

If you really want to use common words and punctuation in your search, then you need to enclose them in double quotes, for example "Word for Windows".

Web ID
Web ID's allow you to get more information about a job than ever before. Just look for a FlexAd web code (otherwise known as a Web ID) at the end of selected ads in the Sunday CareerBuilder section of your local newspaper. Then, enter the listed Web ID into the dedicated search box on CareerBuilder.com. You then have access to additional information about that job, the company, and you can even apply online!
