I'm looking to make some changes so that the job search includes company name and a custom post meta. Any ideas on how to achieve that?
all the best,

Thank you for contacting us,
1. Custom post meta
Do you want this one http://prntscr.com/94ebx7 to be displayed in Search area
2. Company name
Please go to Jobs> Custom fields> click Add > Enter Field Key(ex, Company name), Field Label (ex, Company name), Field Type (Text) > Save changes
In order that this field can be displayed in search area, please make sure that you will post a job that has this field (company name).
P/s: Besides, please ensure that you have updated our latest version 2.6.3.

Regarding the first question, I no longer have that need - so that took care of itself. What I wanted to do, which would be a good feature in the search, is to have the free text search look in the post_meta table for matches as well.
As for question 2, which is a big problem:
What I mean is that the free text search should include the company/employer name that has already been entered into the system by the employer.
This is standard functionality on most job sites like Indeed (see attachment) and CareerBuilder, and what the users have come to expect: that if they write the company name and press search, they will get all jobs connected to that one company. I know this is not a feature in your system (yet? :)), but can you give me any recommendations on how to do it myself?
