Updated Job Search Functionality

We understand that job search experience is vital for Job Seekers so our latest update includes a modification of the website's search logic.

This change means that JobFix Job Seekers will now be able to find the right jobs, quicker and easier than ever before!

Search by Relevancy has been designed to push the most relevant jobs to the top of search results while pushing irrelevant ones to the bottom of the page.

With this new change, results matched by job title will be displayed higher than the rest of search results.

e.g. if a job seeker searches for “office manager”, they are now more likely to see “office manager” jobs at the top of the page, followed later by jobs that have “office” or “manager” mentioned in their titles.



In order to test job seeker experience improvement, we ran a number of tests and are happy to share the following results:

  • Apply rate increased by 15%
  • Search speed increased twice

What does this change mean for Queenstown Employers using JobFix?

Well, the good news is that more of the right people are likely to find your job listings.

However, you need to ensure that you give your job listings meaningful and relevant titles; so make sure that you name your listings correctly and you'll win more of the right candidates.
