How to find CAD Designers with Boolean search strings

To find and hire CAD (Computer-Aided Design) designers, you can use our sample Boolean search strings as a guide to build your own commands. Modify them to find resumes and profiles of qualified candidates on Google.


Find CAD designers

Build a generic Boolean search string for CAD designeraround terms like:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to exclude irrelevant results
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs
  • (“CAD designer” OR “CAD design engineer”) to cover similar job titles

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

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“CAD designer” OR “CAD design engineer”) -job -jobs -sample -templates

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


Find profiles and portfolios of CAD designers

By using Boolean strings for CAD designers on Google you can discover profiles and portfolios on specific sites. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “summary” “CAD designer”
  • “CAD designer” “project views”

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.
