How to find CMOs with Boolean search strings

When looking for a Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), use Boolean search logic in Google to find resumes and profiles. Modify our search string examples to recruit an experienced CMO who can craft powerful strategies to lead your marketing team.

1

Building search strings to find a CMO

Create a generic search string around terms like:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv), to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs
  • (“chief marketing officer” OR “VP Marketing”), to cover variations of the same job title

Here’s an example of a generic search string to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“chief marketing officer” OR “VP Marketing”) -job -jobs -sample -examples

With this search string, the words “resume” or “CV” have to appear in the page title. Adding variations of marketing managerial job titles in a Boolean search string for CMO provides more relevant results. And, excluding more terms reduces false positives.

Searching for CMO profiles

Search for CMO profiles on specific sites using Boolean search in Google, by including the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:quora.com (CMO OR “chief marketing officer”) “credentials & highlights”
  • site:meetup.com (CMO OR “chief marketing officer”) “member since”

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
