    Question Use of keen... I am not sure, just a check

    I am not sure about the meaning of keen and its use.

    Can I say:

    They are keen looking someone for that position
    (to mean that they are disparate)

    I am keen interested in the position advertised
    (to mean I am really interested in that)

    ????

    I am keen interested in the position advertised
    (to mean I am really interested in that) I am keenly interested...
