Here is a collection of the most effective boolean search strings I have used. All can be changed around to work for whatever type of person you are looking to find.
Happy Hunting!

Using Boolean Search on LinkedIn

You can run a Boolean search on LinkedIn using advanced search operators and boolean logic to conduct searches.

Here are some ways you can construct your searches:

    • 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.
      • LinkedIn search only supports standard quotation marks. Other software or websites may use special symbols that our system does not recognize.
      • • In order to optimize overall site performance, stop words such as “by”, “in”, “with”, etc. aren’t used.
    • NOT searches – To exclude a particular term, type that term with an uppercase NOT immediately before it. For example, type: programmer NOT manager.
    • OR searches – To see results that include one or more terms in a list, separate the terms with an uppercase OR. For example, type “sales OR marketing”.
    • AND searches – To get results that include two or more terms in a list, you can use the uppercase word AND as a separator. For example, type: manager AND director.


    • Note: You don’t need to use AND. If you search 2 or more terms, you’ll automatically see results that include all of them.
  • 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 you want to exclude “assistant to VP” or SVPs, type VP NOT(assistant OR SVP)

When handling searches, the overall order to precedence is:

  2. Parentheses [()]
  3. NOT
  4. AND
  5. OR


  • The + and – operators are not officially supported by LinkedIn. Using AND in place of a + and NOT in place of a – makes a query much easier to read and guarantees that we’ll handle the search correctly.
  • When using NOT, AND or OR operators, you must type them in uppercase letters.
  • We don’t support wildcard searches.
  • Boolean search will only work in the keyword word field.
