Here are seven sample X-Ray searches which may give you additional ideas on X-Raying LinkedIn:
- Unemployed or Recent Job Changes: site:linkedin.com/in inanchor:walmart business analyst –intitle:walmart
- Recommended members: site:linkedin.com/in “recommendations received”
- People with no current job (at the crawl time) or those who hide the employment section on public profiles: site:linkedin.com/in -present
- Recent jobs with little competition: site:linkedin.com/jobs/view sourcer “be among the first 25 applicants” -“no longer”
- Articles written in 2020: site:linkedin.com/pulse inanchor:2020 -intitle:2020
- Companies by location and industry: site:linkedin.com/company inanchor:chicago inanchor:”Technology, Information and Internet”
- People with unique names 🙂 site:linkedin.com/in -“see others named”
Over the past few weeks, Mike Santoro and I have enjoyed exchange of ideas and search strings in a Messenger chat, discovering new X-Ray opportunities, particularly, with inanchor: By now, we have a little Encyclopedia of LinkedIn X-Ray knowledge. We want to share it with all of you at the upcoming class,

Number 3 is very interesting, but it sadly doesn’t work for me.
Interestingly, all results that I get have at least one (usually) even more current role (not recent ones). ‘Present’ is visibly there. I tried with both types of dashes, and also with quotes. What might be the reason?

Thank you for your response.
Yes, correct. If you add more keywords, you will have fewer false positives.
