Here's 1 hack that cuts our search process per candidate down by several hours a week.
1: Quoted searches: For an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotation marks. For example, type "product manager". You can also use quotation marks if you want to find someone with a multi-word title.
2: NOT searches: Type the word NOT (capital letters) immediately before a search term to exclude it from your search results. This typically limits your search results. For example, "programmer NOT manager".
3: OR searches: Type the word OR (capital letters) to see results that include one or more items in a list. This typically broadens your search results. For example, "sales OR marketing OR advertising”.
4: AND searches: AND searches: Type the word AND (capital letters) to see results that include all items in a list. This typically limits your search results. For example, "accountant AND finance AND CPA".
5: Parenthetical searches - To do a complex search, you can combine terms using parentheses. For example, to find people who have "VP" in their profiles, but exclude "assistant to VP" or SVPs, type VP NOT (assistant OR SVP).
1) Product Manager: (“product”) AND (“head” OR “VP” OR “vice president” OR “group” OR “Chief” OR “senior”)
This lets you search for Product Leadership roles
2) Optical engineer: (”Optics” OR “optical”) AND (“research” OR “engineer”)
This lets you search for engineering and research related roles in a specific domain (like optics). You can do the same with other domains.
3) Venture capital: (“Venture Capital” OR “VC”) AND (“associate” OR “analyst)
This lets you identify all possible roles under the VC umbrella.
4) Sales development representative in fintech: Sales development representative AND ("fintech")
This lets you search for sales roles at financial technology companies.
HUGE TIP: Filter for posted in the last week. Posts that are older than 1 week have often been filled.
