Could an Expert provide the answer to this please. I need to search a string of text and find one of several words.

i.e. I need to find Jan or Feb or Mar or Apr

I have the below formula but cannot figure out how to expand this to look for all of the above.

=IF(ISERROR(SEARCH("Jan",A1)),"","Jan")

Thanks
