Subject Re: Solr facet search improvements

It would probably be better to do entity extraction and normalization of
job titles as a front-end process before ingesting the data into Solr, but
you could also do it as a custom or script update processor. The latter can
be easily coded in JavaScript to run within Solr

Your first step in any case will be to define the specific rules you wish
to use for both normalization of job titles and the actual matching. Yes,
you can do that in Solr, but you have to do it, Solr will not do it
magically for you. Also, post some specific query examples that completely
cover the range of queries you need to be able to handle.
