  8. 8. Boolean Search String TWEAKS: Boolean String – (store manager OR logistics manager) NOT courier quotes have been removed from store manager & logistics manager RESULT: This will fetch more results because STORE MANAGER and LOGISTICS MANAGER are NOT EXACT WORDS (since quotes have been removed) All CVs will either have the keywords: ‘ store and manager ’ or ‘logistics and manager ’ (not necessarily together) but will not have ‘ courier ’ in it
  9. 9. Boolean Search String TWEAKS: Boolean String – (‘store manager’ OR ‘logistics manager’) NOT ‘ courier services ’ courier has been changed to courier services within quotes RESULT: The exclusion will ensure there is no EXACT PHRASE of ‘ courier services ’ present in the CV. However, if only ‘ courier ’ occurs, the same will be allowed now. Similarly if only ‘ services ’ occurs in the CV, the same will be allowed in the search results.
