CxSearch! is an additional option in Carerix that simplifies complex searches through semantic search technology. Through one simple search from your job order file you can directly search in multiple (CV) databases and social media like:

  • LinkedIn

  • DPG (including Nationale Vacaturebank, Intermediar and Tweakers Career)

  • Monster (Monsterboard)

  • Jobbird

CxSearch! offers you a larger chance to find the best candidates for your job orders. Other advantages of CXSearch! include:

  • A very user friendly interface, that you can use straight out of Carerix

  • A higher chance to find the best candidates

  • The option to search in multiple databases and social media in one go

  • Possibility to add external profiles to your own Carerix database

  • Saving searches

  • Integrated in your workflow, from job order to match

Search features

CxSearch! features:

  • Clever result ranking

  • Searching with synonyms and related terms

  • Searching in career paths

  • Spelling correction

  • Searching with facets

  • Searching with location

  • Ranking importance


Open a Job Order, click on the tab Search! The first tab shows the Carerix database. The other tabs are external sources: LinkedIn, DPG, Monster and Jobbird.

The following precepts apply:

  • Candidates with an attachment of the CVTag file are show, but only when the attachment can be parsed (a picture will not work)

  • Textkernel function tables and synonyms will be used (not the ones in Carerix).

  • You will see the same candidates in Search! that you are allowed to see in Carerix as user.

Candidates in Search! are always up to date

The following things will create automatic updates in Search!:

  • Adding or changing a Candidate attachment

  • Adding or changing the Experiences tab in a Candidate file

  • Changing the following Carerix fields:
    First name
    Last name
    Date of birth
    Driver's license
    Availability date
    Address private, all fields
    Telephone number
    Mobile phone
    Email address

The modification date that you can use for searches in Search! through two facets (modification date to and from) is filled with the date when the candidate is changed in Search!. Exception to this is the initial filling of the Search! database with candidates. In that case the Last Contact field is used for the modification date. Is this field empty, then the last modification date of the candidate file is sent to Search!.

The Carerix field below are leading for Search! searches.

In the CV of Candidate Jan "Amsterdam" is listed as his city of residence.
However, by now Candidate Jan has moved to "London" and this is listed as the right private address in Carerix.
When using Search! you will be able to find Candidate Jan as listed in "London" because the most recent information should be filled
in in the candidate file in the Carerix database, not the CV.  

External sources

  • LinkedIn: you will search LinkedIn public profiles through Google.

  • DPG: you need a DPG-account in order to view the profiles

  • Monster (Monsterboard): your own paid CAT-code is needed to show candidates as results of your search (you ask for this CAT-code with Monsterboard and is added in Carerix to your user profile). Contact the Helpdesk to activate this option.

  • Jobbird: free preview of possible candidates, your own free login code is needed to see the full profile.

Update since 15 August 2020 for DPG:

With the launch of DPG Recruitment de Persgroep migrated all NVB and Intermediair accounts to their new platform. Therefore the TK Search! tabs for NVB and Intermediair became useless in the Search product. As a replacement the DPG tab is introduced. It brings together all public profiles of NVB, Intermediair and Tweakers Career. If you had the tabs for NVB and/or Intermediair enabled, they are automatically replaced by the new DPG tab. Please note the following:

  • In order to view the candidate profiles from the search results, users will need to log in to DPG. If you had NVB and/or Intermediair accounts you should already have been notified by and supplied with credentials for DPG. If that is not the case, please contact DPG. The old credentials for NVB/Intermediair do not work on DPG’s new platform.

  • Importing profiles from DPG is not possible at the moment, as it is currently not supported by DPG's new platform. Textkernel is working together with DPG to address this, but unfortunately no timeline can be provided yet. For now there will be only a link to view the full profile on DPG, and users can still download the profile from DPG manually.

  • You can turn of the DPG-tab if desired in the Textkernel Search! settings. Just go to Maintenance --> Settings --> Textkernel Search! --> showTKSearchTabs. It is not possible to have the old NVB and/or Intermediair tabs enabled again.
