Building search strings to find Insurance Agents

Create a generic search string around terms like:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results
  • (“insurance agent” OR “insurance sales representative”) to cover variations of the same job title
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv), to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs

Here’s an example of a generic Boolean search string for insurance agents’ resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“insurance agent” OR “insurance sales representative”) -job -jobs -sample -examples -“resume services”

With this search string, the words “resume” or “CV” have to appear in the page title. Adding variations of insurance agent job titles will provide more relevant results. And, excluding more terms reduces false positives.

Searching for profiles of Insurance Agents

Search for profiles of Insurance Agents on specific sites through Google by including the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:quora.com “insurance agent” “credentials & highlights”
  • site:twitter.com “insurance agent” -jobs

Add more criteria in your Boolean strings for insurance agents 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.
