How to use SeekOut's Experience and Education Filters

Experience

The Experience section has two tabs: Standard and Combined. Each tab contains three filters: Company, Title, and Years of Experience. 

Experience - Standard tab

Use these filters to search for candidates based on their previous work experience. Company and Title filters have four options: Current or Past, Current, Past, or Past Not Current. This allows you to make precise searches for candidates based on your specific criteria.

Current or Past is the default option for both filters. You can choose a different option by clicking the arrow and selecting one from the dropdown list.

  •  Company
    • Type the name of a company in the Add field and select the company from the results.
  • Title
    • Type a job title in the Add field and select the title from the results.
  • Years of Experience
    • Use the sliding scale to create a range of years or select one of the presets below the slider to apply it to your search.
