Tip 1: Don’t let Boolean bloat your search results – The NOT is as important as the AND

It only took me a few Boolean searches to get hooked. I could quote and bracket my way to a wealth of talent that almost became addictive. Each search became ever more complicated and I felt I was becoming the Boolean master until I noticed my colleagues begin to generate ever more precise results by not just focusing on the AND or the OR, but also the NOT.

It’s important to remember that Boolean search results are irrespective of date so if you are searching for a SAP analyst for example, your search could return candidates who were once a SAP analyst, but have since progressed to director of SAP analysts. Including a simple NOT “director” is all it takes.
