Clicking on the job title you can Exclude the title, or rank this as a ‘nice to have’, ‘should have’ or ‘must have’.
At any point you can amend the Keyword Relevance of the term used as when performing semantic searches, it is possible, but also important to indicate the relevance of each keyword in your search query. Marking certain keywords as more relevant than others and thus influences the ranking of the results that are returned.
There are three possible levels of relevance: Must Have, Should Have, and Nice to Have.
Must Have: Use Must Have to indicate that the term is required to be present in all search results. Any candidates that do not include the Must Have item will not be returned in the results.
a. This relevancy is set by default on all your keywords!
Should Have: Most search keywords will be marked as Should Have. Candidates that include the Should Have item will be ranked higher in the results than candidates that do not have it. Should Have allows results that do not include the term to be returned but they will be ranked lower.
a. Typing “^” in front of a keyword gives the option to rank the result higher if a certain keyword is added after “^”. (The should-have query parts are marked with condition STRONGLY_FAVORED.)
Nice to Have: Use Nice to Have to boost the ranking of items that are not mandatory but would make one candidate a better fit over another. The Nice to Have ranking weight is less than Should Have but still higher than candidates that do not have the term.
a. Typing “%” in front of a keyword gives the option to rank the result higher if a certain keyword is added after “%”. (The nice-to-have query parts are marked with condition FAVORED.)
