    2. Select one Job/Internship Target (e.g. Business - Marketing)
    3. Jobs located within - Few job postings are categorized by city and state, therefore, for specific geographic location searches we recommend using the Jobs located within criteria (e.g. Jobs located within 30 miles of zip code 14222 for jobs in the Buffalo area).
        NOTE: Create separate search agents for different positions, job/internship targets and locations.
