Hi All:

 

I'm working on a search for a 'customer service manager' hailing from any aircraft manufacturer. The candidate should be a degreed engineer. I did the following search:

 

site:linkedin.com ('lear corporation" "customer service") (engineer career) (inurl:in | inurl:pub) -intitle:directory

 

I am getting a great deal of 'noise' or false positives in my results...

 

Does anyone have suggestions as to how I might clean this up?

 

Thanks very much in advance for your assistance!

Try the following in Google:

site:linkedin.com ("lear corporation" | boeing) "customer service" ~manager ~engineer (bsme | bsee) (inurl:in | inurl:pub) -inurl:dir

Change the name of the co's in the string for other aircraft mgr if needed.

Note: Recently LinkedIN changed some things so -inurl:dir works eliminating more 'noise' then -intitle:directory. Also watch your syntax - you didn't have " in front of Lear

I've always used site:linkedin.com/in/ what am I missing with the inurl:pub?

Irina recently noted that the public LI profile often shows more info than the internal one:

Eric-
If you look at LI profiles, the web address of each has either an 'in' or 'pub' in the URL. If you don't include inurl:pub in your string, you will be missing many results-

Eric,
Hi! I thought you read my blog? :-)

Gary is right (as always), some LI URL's have "pub," others have "in" - search for only one and you miss the others (true hidden talent pool). See attached image.


Also, for fully up-to-date LI X-Ray string syntax:

Happy hunting, and let's chat sometime.
