COOL: People Search Trick on LinkedIn

May 18th, 2011 | by Jason Alba |

Check this out…

On JibberJobber we did this little trick where you can filter down on your network contacts doing a search like this:

lastname:alba

I have been used to doing this for the last year, and when I was on LinkedIn I wasn’t thinking, and automatically did a search like this:

company:microsoft

Guess what?  IT WORKED!

What that means is you can use the main, general search up on the top right to filter your search, instead of clicking on the advanced link:

Note the yellow arrow… it defaults to current or past, which is something you might want to change.

(I haven’t played around with this much, so far it only works with “company:____” … name and last name didn’t work)
