As many as you want! All the searches you run will be conveniently saved on your Dashboard page for easy access in the future. SearchMonster also allows you clone a search (to copy the search criteria), archive the searches you want to hide from view and delete them permanently.

Yes! To receive an email notification when new candidates who match your search are found, turn on the Enable Notifications switch at the bottom of your search criteria from the search results page. You can set the frequency for these notifications on the Settings page from the left panel.

Yes, you can! SearchMonster has two versatile search options. You can use our Semantic Search which intuitively searches for related terms and concepts, or you can select the Boolean option and enter a keyword search string. Either way, you can expect to find the best candidates for the job. Check out Boolean tab in this article for more information.

Yes, just leave the location field blank to search the entire country. This is a wonderful strategy to really extend you candidate pool for remote positions.

Although we recommend casting a wide net and searching all resumes, you can certainly narrow your results with the Resume Updated filter in your search criteria options. Choose from a variety of timeframes from updated “today” to “within 1 week,” to “within 9 months” and more. Just remember that candidates who haven’t updated their resumes recently may still be open to your opportunity. The ability to sort by resume updated is something we are looking into for a future release.
