How to find Sales Executives with Boolean search strings

When hiring Sales Executives, Boolean search helps you discover relevant profiles and resumes. Modify and refine our example search strings based on your needs.

1

Generic search string to find Sales Executives

Build search according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs, to exclude irrelevant results
  • intitle:resume and inurl:resume, to get results that contain the word “resume” in the page title and page url respectively.

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) “sales executive” -job -jobs -sample -examples -intitle:book

You can look for variations of sales titles with a single string. For example, if you’re looking for both Sales Executives and Account Executives, use the OR operator to search for both job titles at once:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) (“sales executive” OR “account executive”) -job -jobs -sample -examples -intitle:book

2

Searching for Sales Executive profiles

Look through social networks on Google to find profiles of talented Sales Executives. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:quora.com “sales executive” “credentials & highlights”
  • site:meetup.com “sales executive” “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.
