Tips on Searching for Jobs

Quick Start

Searching jobs with Jora is very easy. At its most basic, you will need to do three things:

  1. Enter a job title in the Keywords box (for example: 'Accountant', 'Java Developer')
  2. Enter which area you would like to work in the Location box ( 'Lahore, 'Islamabad', 'Punjab')
  3. Click on the "Search Jobs" button. Jora will then start doing some heavy lifting to bring you the best jobs in town!

Find Jobs in Surrounding Areas

By default, Jora will try to find jobs in all areas within 50km from the location you've entered. You can change the radius by clicking on the drop down list marked as 'Distance' near the top of the result page.

Exact Phrases Search

To find jobs matching an exact phrase, put double quotes around the words.

For example: "project manager"


All searches made on Jora are case insensitive. Therefore, PROJECT MANAGER, project manager or Project Manager all return the same results.

Advanced search tips

You can narrow down or broaden your search by using AND and NOT in your query.

For example, to search for Java jobs but NOT PHP jobs: java NOT php

If you are looking for jobs that involve both Java AND PHP programming skills: java AND php

Filter and Sort Search Results

Normally, Jora can return thousands of jobs for a particular query. If that is a bit much, you can use the left hand side navigation to refine the search results spectrum.

Currently, Jora allows filtering by titles, locations, job types and sources.
