In the Connexys Candidates Search you can filer your search criteria on various types. By default, it search for all text fields on the Candidate object. As you can see in the image, on the right side, you can also show your favorites and change the columns of the found Candidates.
|Type of search||Functionality|
|Free text search||The top field is meant to search in all candidate fields. All fields of type "text", "text area", "email", "phone", "rich text area" are searched. Also all words of the candidate's CV are searched.|
|Search for candidates within a certain radius of a specific location.|
| Work experience
This allows you to search for candidates with certain work experience.
- Last job title --> All candidates that have certain words in their last job title
If you have paid for Textkernel CV parsing, the job titles and employer names are automatically derived from the candidate's CV.

|Filter the result based on created Talentpools and/or Talentpool Members, view all of your own|
