Boolean Search: OR
Different words could be used to describe similar concepts. For example, CEO might have “CEO” in their profile, might also have “Chief Executive Office” or “CEOO”.
We support the concept of OR, just make sure you always put “OR” in capital letters.
If you are looking for a CEO, you could use the following search:
CEO OR Chief Executive Officer OR CEOO
Search results will return those who have any of the above terms in their profile.
Boolean Search: AND
AND allows to find people who have both terms in their profile. For example, you need someone who has both “CFO” and “Financial Director” in their profile:
CFO AND Financial Director
Look at what you can do when you combine AND with OR:
(CFO OR Chief Financial Officer OR CFOO) AND (Director OR Partner)
Make sure to use parentheses to group the OR terms together.
Boolean Search: NOT
Another powerful operator is NOT. It helps you exclude those who have the term in their profile. For example, I’m don’t want to recruit CFO from my friends company, the search to use is:
(CFO OR Chief Financial Officer OR CFOO) AND (Director OR Partner) AND NOT Friends Company
