4. Include jobs that do not state salary:
  Some companies do not disclose salaries. Accordingly, we recommend against limiting your search to those with salary only. If you want to restrict the jobs to only those that show your desired salary range, click No.
Otherwise,
J I L will include these jobs that meet your other search criteria.

5. Keyword Search:
  The Keyword section is not essential. In most instances, the job category will provide adequate information for J I L to search your job requirements. However, to focus the search on more specific criteria, which may be contained within a job posting, such as ‘Excel’, ‘Vice President’ or ‘radio-frequency’, you may enter keywords in this field. J I L will scan the posted job descriptions to look for these words. Note: Keywords are not case sensitive.

J I L supports both majorly used keyword search formats. You may use whichever you feel more comfortable with to more closely target the search:

Boolean logic
  and By naming ‘and’ between 2 or more functions, the job must state all functions listed, e.g. warehousing and transportation, requires the position to include both warehousing and transportation functions.
  or By naming ‘or’ between 2 or more functions, the job can state any one of these functions, e.g. warehousing or transportation requires the position to involve either warehousing or transportation or both.
  not By naming ‘not’ between 2 or more functions, the job must include the first function and must not include the second, e.g., warehousing not transportation requires the position to include warehousing, but will not select any jobs that include transportation.
  Importance logic
    By naming one or more functions separated by spaces, the job must state all of these functions, e.g., warehousing transportation distribution will list all jobs containing all three of the functions entered.
  + By preceding a function with a '+', the job must state the function in order to be listed, e.g., +warehousing +transportation will list all jobs containing both functions entered.
  - By preceding a function with a '-', the job must not state the function in order to be listed, e.g., +warehousing -transportation will list all jobs stating warehousing as long as they do not state transportation.
