Quick video to teach you how to find hidden jobs on LinkedIn. You can run a Boolean search on LinkedIn by combining keywords with operators like AND, NOT, and OR during your search.
Here are some ways to use Boolean logic and construct your searches:
Quoted searches: For an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in quotation marks. For example, type "operations manager". You can also use quotation marks if you want to find someone with a multi-word title.
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, "engineering NOT manager".
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, "recruiting OR job OR job”.
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, "driller AND cyber AND deepwater".
