How can we filter applicants by state when viewing with a requisition?

Received Response


This is in relation to viewing applicants within a requisition and filtering - not the separate Candidate Search option. We have a recruiter that has a requisition with over 400 applicants and they would like to filter to view applicants for specific states to start with. There is a filter for location after showing filters in the Job Applications list for a requisition, but it seems to be a free text search. How can we advise them to filter applicants by state?

Searching Pittsburgh is successful in filtering to applicants with a location of "Pittsburgh, PA, US". Searching "PA" returns applicants that have the letters "pa" anywhere in the location, so including something like "Hanover Park, IL, US". If we try to search by ", PA," or just "PA,", it seems that the comma included in the search is making it return no applicants. Is there a specific way to have it escape the comma or using a wildcard that will filter on everyone with a state of PA?

Howdy, Stranger!
