Advance Search Filters

Recently revamping their advanced search features LinkedIn has given you as a recruiter a fairly good opportunity to leverage some strong filters to narrow you search. Not everyone will understand or have the ability to manipulate search scripts to uncover hidden talent. There is certainly a skill involved in understanding the genetic make up of search and how as a sourcer you need to manipulate data (in a good and ethical way) to meet your search.

If in fact you have this ability, kudos to you. I personally find a pleasure in creating and breaking scripts for a living. If the opposite true, and you can learn how to create simple basic Boolean scripts within LinkedIn, the advanced search filters can be a great help to you.

Take a look at this short video depicting how to leverage the advanced search features within LinkedIn. It’s simple to understand but if used properly will be very effective in your search.
