Linkedin Officially announced that we’re rolling out a desktop redesign to all LinkedIn members. In this redesign, you now have one single search box at the top of every LinkedIn page to find People, Jobs, Companies, Groups and Schools. Searching for Posts will also be coming soon.

Detailed People Search features updated

  • Hit enter to go to the search results page, click the People filter at the top to see only people results. You can narrow your search by using the filter options on the right hand side, such as location, company, past company, industry and school.

  • From the search results page, select a member's name to view his or her profile. Here you can message them, connect with them or follow them for future interactions.

You Can Search & Add Alert for Company, job functions and Institutions

The Features of Job Search and Al

  • Type a job function or company into the search box. You can select from the suggestions in the dropdown list or;

  • Hit enter to go to the search results page you can narrow down your search results by clicking the Jobs search filter and using the filter options on the right hand side, such as location, company.

  • If you want to set up a search alert for example for a specific job title or company you can do so. Once you’ve put in your search, click on Create search alert, and set up to receive via email or text when new job openings are listed.

For the power search members out there, Linkedin team added a set of five search operatorsto help you  narrow down your search results directly from the search box:

  • firstname: Finds members based on first name

  • lastname: Finds members based on last name

  • title: Finds members based on their current title

  • company: Finds members based on their current company (keyword search)

  • school: Finds members based on schools attended (keyword search)

Search operators complement the filters on the right-hand side of the results page and the AND, OR and NOT boolean operators.

Here’s a quick example: to search for current software engineers not named Doe, who have attended either Harvard University or Stanford University, try: title:"software engineer" NOT lastname:doe school:(harvard OR stanford)

When using search operators, remember to use quotes for multi-word search terms, and parentheses for AND, OR and NOT phrases.

Linkedin says They’ll continue to invest in search relevance and query understanding to bring you the best results. If you have any questions on LinkedIn search, check out  eLinkdin Help Center.
