How to Search LinkedIn by Job Title
LinkedIn gives you the ability to search by job title instead of person because sometimes you might need to look for someone in a specific position rather than for a specific person. This is a huge LinkedIn benefit. After all, who knows what you go through better than other people with the same job, right? Who better to give advice on a topic like search engine optimization (SEO) than someone whose job relates to SEO, correct?
When you’re ready to search by job title, just follow these steps:
While logged in to LinkedIn, click the Advanced link at the top right of the page.
You’re taken to the Advanced People Search page.
Enter the job title in the Title box provided.
If you leave the default choice of Current or Past, your search results will include all the people who have ever defined that job title in one of the positions on their LinkedIn profiles.
To search for only those people who currently have that title, change the drop-down list choice to Current.
(Optional, but do it anyway if you can.) Select at least one Industry from the list provided so your search results are relevant to the job title search.
You can actually select multiple industries from the list. Simply scroll through the list and select the check box next to each industry you want to select.
Click the Search button to see your results.
You see a set of results that match your job title request. You can always use the Filter By options on the left side of the Search Results screen to add more information and get a highly targeted list.
