You can sort Resume and JD search results by selecting further fields in the sorting parameter.

The sorting is an optional parameter (query) that can be passed in the API request of Simple Search, Boolean Search, and Match. Once sorting is passed in the request parameter of Simple Search and Boolean Search, it will return the resume/JD results that fulfills the sorting query, see below sorting sample query:

JSON request with Sorting parameter

  • The sort parameter arranges search results in either ascending (asc) or descending (desc) order.
  • When more than one sort criteria is provided, the second entry will only be used if the first entry results in a tie. If there is a third entry, it will only be used if the first and second entries are tied. This pattern continues with further entries.
        "field" : "Field Name 1",
        "order" : "asc/desc"
        "field" : "Field Name 2",
        "order" : "asc/desc"

The following fields can be used in the sorting (above) parameter:

                        "order": "asc/desc"
