Search FAQ


How does the Location Proximity search work?

Our location proximity search uses Google Maps API to geolocate the region you are searching for by suggesting existing location matches, then returns job listing results based on their proximity to your selected region within your selected proximity radius. For example, running a location proximity search for “Edmonton, Alberta, Canada” within a 25km radius will return results for all job listings with a location set to Edmonton, as well as jobs located within 25km of Edmonton’s centre, such as jobs located in St. Albert, Sherwood Park and other surrounding areas.

When searching by broad regions such as an entire province, proximity will be calculated from that region’s most central point. For example, a location proximity search for “Alberta, Canada” set to 25km will return results where location is set to “Alberta” only, or within a 25km radius from Alberta’s most central point. Expanding the location’s proximity radius will expand the scope of your search further out from the region’s centre to include more results.

Clicking the Geolocate icon inside the Location Proximity search box will allow you to search for jobs located within your selected proximity radius based on your current location. Keep in mind when using this feature that our job listings typically specify a city or town only, and do not specify street addresses. Therefore, the accuracy of a location proximity search based on your home address, for example, may not necessarily be an accurate representation of the job location’s distance from your home.

How do the Job Type search filters work?

Work Evolution classifies jobs into 7 types: Full Time, Part Time, Permanent, Temporary, Flexible Location, Flexible Hours and Remote Work.

Most jobs are either Full Time or Part Time and either Permanent or Temporary. If a job listing is marked both Full Time and Part Time, and/or both Permanent and Temporary, this means the employer is flexible and is open to either of these arrangements.

Flexible Location jobs can be performed from a combination of working on-site and working from home, however the candidate would typically be local to the job listing’s location. Flexible Hours means the job can either be performed on a candidate’s own schedule, or the employer is open to a non-traditional working schedule.

A Remote Work job is 100% work-from-home and can be performed from anywhere. The employer will consider candidates located outside of their own base location (if applicable).

Selecting multiple job types in a search will narrow the list of results. For example, selecting Full Time, Permanent and Flexible Hours in your search will only show you job listings that meet all 3 of these criteria.

How do the Industry, Job Function and Minimum Education search filters work?

Jobs may be classified with one or multiple industries and job functions criteria. Jobs are typically classified with only one Minimum Education Required criteria.

Selecting multiple industries, job functions or education criteria in your search will expand the list of results. For example, selecting Accounting, Automotive and Civil Engineering under Industry will show you job listings assigned to any of these 3 industries. This allows you to search for jobs across multiple industries if you have skills and experience in multiple industries. This approach works the same way for Job Function and Minimum Education Required.

Please note, however, that selecting criteria in more than one of these three filters simultaneously will narrow the list of results, as the selections made in the second/third filters will limit results to those contained within the results of your first selection. For example, selecting “Accounting” under “Industry” AND “Business Development” under Job Function will return results for job listings only where BOTH of these criteria apply.
