<form name="myform" id="myForm">

<script> // AJAX Implementation
function showJobs() {

   str = document.getElementById("jobs").value;

   str1 = document.getElementById("attributes").value;

   if (str == "" || str1 == "") {

   document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML = "";



   if (window.XMLHttpRequest) { // code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
   xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();

  } else { // code for IE6, IE5
   xmlhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
