I am looking for some more info on proximity searches that I can train recruiters on how to find recent college graduates. i have developed one string but cannot seem to be able to include year and that is important. We typically look for recent grads or upcoming grads so if we could add "2016" in our search that would get us 2016 graduates.
anyone seen or done a successful search?

I hope it helps.
The below search string does not work
