How to find Social Media Specialists with Boolean search strings

Use Boolean logic in Google to find resumes and profiles of Social Media Specialists. Our search strings examples provide a basis to build your own Boolean search commands. Modify them to recruit professionals who can build effective social media strategies to engage your audience.


Generic search string to find Social Media Specialists

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 specialist” OR “social media marketer”), to cover variations of the same job title

Here’s an example of a generic Boolean search string for a social media specialist that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“social media specialist” OR “social media marketer”) -job -jobs -sample -examples

When running this command in Google, you’ll get results that include the words “resume” or “CV” in the page title. Excluding more terms reduces false positives.


Searching for profiles of Social Media Specialists

Search for social media professionals on specific sites through Google by including the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “credentials & highlights” “social media specialist”
  • “member since” “social media specialist”

Add more criteria in your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.
