Before we begin

Note that CutShort is a matching based platform. To see candidates, you need to first create a job and our algorithms will show you people relevant for your job.

These matches are ranked based on profile match, location, salalry, educational background, industry background and and so on.

Running your own search looks attractive, but the fact is it dramatically increases the complexity for you to use various filters and search queries to find the right candidates. Our matching algorithms take care of all of that for you.

If you do want to use manual search

We do support manual searching of candidates too. Just refer to the screenshot below:

You can filter based on resume text

When you see matching candidates, you can filter them based on some text in their resume.

This feature can be useful in some cases such as:

Looking for specific experience such as "engineering management", "sketching", "stroyboarding" etc.
Looking for interests such as "coprogramming" or "kaggle" or "olympiad" or "CAT" or "chess"
Finding candidates with connections to your location such as "indore"
Anything else you like!

Is Boolean search supported?

At this time, only keyword or phrase searches are supported. For example,

Entering php will search for php anywhere in resume
Using double quotes like "stackoverflow rank" will search for exact phrase stackoverflow rank in the resume
Using php java will search resumes that have either of those words in their resume
