LinkedHacks for Sourcing

LinkedIn® remains a top site for sourcing due to its accumulated "big data" and messaging capabilities.

However, LinkedIn® users face serious search and messaging limitations today compared to only a few years ago. LinkedIn’s own "how to search" documentation contains errors (we’ll provide a corrected version in this class).

If you have a Basic or Premium account, you need to be aware of the growing keyword interpretations, which make search results on LinkedIn® wrong in particular cases, which we will describe. The search interfaces for School alumni and Company employees have also been quietly updated, and do not work as you might expect.

Professional accounts, such as Sales Navigator, Lite, and LinkedIn® Recruiter, provide "pseudo-Boolean" search features that are not intuitive and may lead you to miss desired candidates.

In personal accounts (whether Basic, Business, or Job Seeker), LinkedIn® has severely limited the Boolean search. Add more than a handful of ORs, ANDs, or NOTs to your search, and you will get no results! There are many now-missing features, such as searching based on city names and postal codes.

Fortunately, we have developed a range of useful "hacks" to overcome these challenges and restore missing search functionality. These tips and workarounds, including undocumented search operators, will supercharge your LinkedIn Sourcing - even with a Basic or Business account.

Don’t get left behind! Join the class to get a full understanding of how things work and learn the ways to work around the limitations.

NOTE: By purchasing these materials, you commit to NOT publicly sharing any of the hacks elsewhere online.
