try this on query on MagicSearchSubmit.php

if(isset($_GET['PrefIndustry']))
{
  $q = $_GET['PrefIndustry'];
  $q = mysql_real_escape_string($q);
}
elseif(isset($_POST['PrefIndustry']))
{
  $q = $_POST['PrefIndustry'];
  $q = mysql_real_escape_string($q);
}
else
{
  $q = NULL;
}

$query = "select * from candidates where PrefCity like '".$q."%'";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error in Search Query!<br />'.mysql_error());

// If want to fetch single result
$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);

echo $row['field1'].$row['field2'];

// or you want to fetch whole similar result use while()

hope it will help you,,

In search term, it is necessary to get what we have to search and is that search is in our database?, and in which field of our database?

first we have to conform about the $_REQUEST value?
if is correct then we get the result.

<?php include("includes/connection.php");?>

<body>
<a href="logout.php">LOGOUT</a>  
  <table width="100%" border="1">
  
   <tr><td align="center">id</a></td> 
  <td align="center">PrefCity</td>
 
 </tr>
<?php

$PrefCity =$_REQUEST['PrefCity'];

// conform about the value
echo $PrefCity;

// $PrefIndustry =$_REQUEST['PrefIndustry'];

// $Experience =$_REQUEST['Experience'];

// Don't have to write this query.
// $sql= "SELECT * FROM candidates WHERE ";

if(isset($PrefCity))
{
  $q = $PrefCity;
  $q = mysql_real_escape_string($q);
}
else
{
  $q = NULL;
}
 
 # Please check the filed name is correct or not near where
 
$query = "select * from candidates where PrefCity like '".$q."%'";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die('Error in Search Query!<br />'.mysql_error());
 
 
// or you want to fetch whole similar result use while()
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
{
$id= $row['id'];
$PrefCity= $row['PrefCity'];
//$Experience= $row['Experience'];
echo  "<tr>
    <td>$id</td>
    <td>$PrefCity</td>
   </tr>";}
?>
</body>
</html>
