COUNTIF with keywords


I am trying to set up a formula to count a cell if it contains a certain keyword (e.g. "communication"). The cell itself won't be only composed of that word, but will just contain it.

My formula so far is =COUNTIF([Job Classification]:[Job Classification], CONTAINS("communication", [Job Classification]:[Job Classification]))

So far it is currently not working - the message I get is a count of "0".

Thank you
