How to find Sales Managers with Boolean search strings

When recruiting Sales Managers, Boolean logic helps you search for resumes and profiles online. Adjust our search string examples to locate sales candidates with the skills needed for your roles.


Generic search string to find Sales Managers

Create search strings that generate as many relevant results as possible:

  • Look for resumes by using the intitle: and inurl: operators.
  • Exclude irrelevant results with the NOT () operator. For example, to avoid getting samples or templates of resumes use -samples -templates.
  • Add OR operators to expand your search. For example, use (“sales manager” OR “sales director”) if you want to look for both job titles simultaneously.

Here’s a generic search string you can experiment with:

(intitle:resume OR inurl:resume) (“sales manager” OR “sales director”) -job -jobs -sample -example -template


Searching for Sales Manager profiles

Search through social media profiles on Google to find Sales Management candidates. Include the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • “sales manager” “credentials & highlights”
  • “account director” “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.
