We are using this plugin https://wpjobmanager.com/ with the http://workscout.in/ theme. We need to modify/redo the inbuilt search functionality to be more accurate than it currently is and display results in relevance order.
The new search module needs to calculate the percentage match of the results based on: search term, content match, category match, location, distance, job type, salary filter, rate filter and skills for the resume search. Ideally the module will give us the ability to adjust the weights of the different search values in the WordPress backend, to alter the accuracy at a later date if we need to. I.e. make location more or less important when calculating percentage match. Search autocomplete on the main search term is also desirable.
The search needs to have variations for searching the Jobs and Resumes separately:
The results need to load dynamically through AJAX and display highlighted search terms when they appear in the results, similar to the following plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/highlight-search-terms/
This needs to be done asap and ideally be completed within the next 2 weeks.
A budget hasn't been specifically set set but the freelancer will be chosen based on there offer and success rate.
