1

Building search strings to find Office Managers

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
  • (“office manager” OR “office coordinator”), to cover variations of the same job title

Here’s an example of a generic Boolean search string for office managers’ resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“office manager” OR “office administrator”) -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 office management job titles will provide you with more relevant results. And, excluding more terms will reduce false positives.

Searching for profiles of Office Managers

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

  • site:meetup.com “office manager” “member since”
  • site:quora.com “office manager” “credentials & highlights”

Add more criteria in your Boolean strings for office managers 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.
