1

Hire a Product Designer

Build a generic Boolean search string for product designers around terms like:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to exclude irrelevant results
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs

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

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) “product designer” -job -jobs -sample -templates

With this search string, the words “resume” or “CV” have to appear in the page title. And, excluding more terms will reduce false positives.

2

Find profiles and portfolios of Product Designers

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

  • site:coroflot.com “summary” “product designer”
  • site:dribbble.com “product designer” “shots” -jobs
  • site:behance.net “product 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.
