I need some advice/ideas.

I have a table containing job announcements approx. 250,000 records

In another table is 6000 keywords/sentences from applicant cv's historically regarded by the government as typical

I want to find job announcements where the text contains one or more of the keywords

I have been doing this, using full-text-search, but firstly, the variable, can´t hold all keywords and secondly it is very slow


SELECT   @Keywords = STUFF((SELECT '|' + Word
                            FROM  dbo.Keywords
                            FOR XML PATH('') ), 1, 1, '')

FROM   dbo.Notes
WHERE  CONTAINS(Note, @Keywords)

Do you have any bright suggestions of how to solve this challenge ?
