Becoming A Sourcing Pro: Boolean Search Fundamentals

June 8, 2016

What is Boolean Search?
Boolean Search is a way to organize your search using a combination of keywords and the 3 main Boolean operators (AND, OR and NOT), to produce more accurate and more relevant results for your candidate searches on LinkedIn and beyond.

Everyone wants to source candidates in their database faster and more effectively than ever before. Not everyone wants to study Boolean search strings for hours on end for their database queries.
