How to find a Social Media Manager with Boolean search strings

If you’re looking for a Social Media Manager, use Boolean search on Google to discover profiles and resumes. Modify our search strings examples based on your must-have skills, experience and location for the role.

1

Generic search string to find Social Media Managers

Build search according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:CV), to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs
  • (“social media manager” OR “digital media manager”), to find social media professionals who use different titles

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

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“social media manager” OR “digital media manager”) -example -sample -samples -job -jobs

By using the intitle: operator, you get results that include the words “resume” or “CV” in the page title. Use inurl: to include those words in the page url. Add variations of job titles to get more results that match your criteria. And, excluding more terms reduces false positives.

2

Searching for profiles of Social Media Managers

Boolean search on Google helps you find online profiles of Social Media Managers. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:meetup.com “social media manager” “member since”
  • site:plus.google.com “social media manager” “new york” -jobs

If you get the same type of irrelevant results with each search, use the NOT (“-”) operator to exclude those results. 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.
