Hi,
I am executing the below query against the DimEmployee table in AdventureWorksDW
I have successfully set up FullText

SELECT
e.EmployeeKey
,e.FirstName
,e.LastName
,e.Title
,a.[RANK]
FROM
CONTAINSTABLE(DimEmployee, Title,'Marketing OR Assistant',10) a,
DimEmployee e
WHERE a.[KEY] = e.EmployeeKey

So I am searching for the top 10 employees who have 'Marketing' or 'Assistant' in their Title.
The following are the results
EmployeeKey      FirstName      LastName      Title      RANK
2      Kevin      Brown      Marketing Assistant      80
7      David      Bradley      Marketing Manager      80
8      David      Bradley      Marketing Manager      80
48      Sariya      Harnpadoungsataya      Marketing Specialist      80
98      William      Vong      Scheduling Assistant      80
99      William      Vong      Scheduling Assistant      80
106      David      Barber      Assistant to the Chief Financial Officer      80
109      Mary      Gibson      Marketing Specialist      80
122      Jill      Williams      Marketing Specialist      80
130      Sean      Chai      Document Control Assistant      80

The RANK returned for each record is 80
Is there a way to return all the same records as above, but that records that have both the words 'Marketing' and 'Assistant' would get a higher rank number?

You have to use weighted term. Rank is counted from weight.

Try this:
CONTAINSTABLE(DimEmployee, Title,'ISABOUT (Marketing weight (.5), Assistant weight (.5) )',10)
