Using Multiple Filters at once

You can use each filter one at a time, or multiple filters together. 

  • If you use two or more different filters (e.g., Proximity and Source filters) together, candidates only candidates who meet both criteria will show up in the results.
  • If you use two more values for the same filter (e.g., San Francisco and Krakow for Location filter), candidates who meet either criteria will show up in the results.

The Proximity filter and the Location filter are two separate filters that use different data from the candidate’s profile. If you use both filters at the same time, you may end up with combined list of results that are greater than if you had chosen to use these filters individually.
