Boolean Strings Basics

“Thank you for the awesome Boolean String Basics class Irina and David. It was fantastic and so enriched with useful knowledge!! I feel like I have some great tools to take forward with me on my sourcing quest.”

- Shirley Hubbard, Talent Acquisition Specialist at Physio-Control

This foundational class teaches you how to search effectively online. It is a resource for new Sourcers and a way for experienced Sourcers and Recruiters to refresh their search skills.

Boolean logic is at the core of all online searches. In addition to basic Boolean rules, there are many advanced search features provided by modern search engines that can help us to find information more quickly and precisely than ever before.

We explain the main concepts, best practices, and techniques for finding professionals online (with any skill set, location, or industry). We cover how to create the best search strings (including "X-Ray" searches) from the ground up on Google and other search engines. We also provide examples for applying Boolean best practices to LinkedIn, and other sites.
