Searching for professionals on LinkedIn.com? At this time, business and personal users have the most powerful – but not officially documented – search ways and filters and cross-referencing ability, exceeding (the expensive) Recruiter’s.
You can search for unique filters such as headlines and self-entered skills, and combine other filters such as company size, type, years of experience, or at school in Boolean expressions. The Boolean “limitations” can be overcome with modified search syntax. You can upload and cross-reference up to 10K (!) email addresses vs. Recruiter’s 200.
The extra sourcing power is not documented in LinkedIn’s Help.
