Your quest is a bit too general. The key-terms I use would depend on what I want to find or achieve actually. I searched recently for new job and I used mainly following terms:

" PLC programmer "
" Automation Specialist "
" Software Engineer "
" PLC / SCADA engineer "
" Electrical Engineer "

sometimes I aimed directly at brands and used:

" Siemens S7 " or just " Siemens "
" Mitsubishi "

or just simply:

" PLC ",
" Software "

Kind regards!

the best search key word is Automation, PLC, Instrumentation, Sensors. but most of time get some unwanted results. This is very hard to get correct job opening on this search string.
