How to find Sales Agents with Boolean search strings

Boolean search is a great sourcing ally when you want to find resumes and profiles of Sales Agents. Run basic Boolean strings on Google and refine them to get more relevant results. We have created some examples to get you started.


Generic search string to find Sales Agents

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

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

We use the intitle: and inurl: operators to look for the word “resume” in page titles and page urls respectively. Results that contain jobs, samples or examples of resumes are irrelevant to us, so we exclude them using the NOT (-) operator.


Searching for Sales Agent profiles

Run Boolean strings on Google to search through social media. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • (“real estate sales agent” OR “insurance sales agent”) “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.
