    search for/look for

    Are 'search for' and 'look for' equally correct in such sentences? Is one of them more natural?
    1. I'm looking for a job.
    2. I'm searching for a job.
    3. I'm looking for a white dress and a pair of high-heels.
    4. I'm searching for a white dress and a pair of high-heels.

    They are the same for me. "Searching" may imply a more aggressive effort.
