The new way to find LinkedIn's Advanced Search

LinkedIn Advanced Search just got easier again. Now all you have to do is click anywhere in the search box to see filtering options, including People, Jobs, Content, Companies, Schools, or Groups. 


When you click "People", you can then filter people by connections, locations, or current companies, or search by all filters to search by several filters at once.


When you click "Jobs", you can sort results by date posted, company, experience level, location, or all filters.

When you click "Content", you can sort by posted by (a certain person), date posted, author industries, or all filters.

The other categories don't have such a nice filtering process and search results suffer as a result. 

The worst search experience occurs when you try to search Companies. This is a shame because before the interface change, searching Companies on LinkedIn was terrific. You could sort by location, industry, company size, and more so that you could, for example, see a list of the largest hospitals in Los Angeles. 

Searching for companies on LinkedIn

Now, if you search "Los Angeles, hospitals", you can't subdivide the list by size or other filters, so you get a crappy grab bag list of any organization remotely related to LA healthcare. A company with 11-50 employees shows up higher than UCLA Health with 10,000+ employees.   

LinkedIn could easily fix this company search crap fest, but despite repeated complaints, chooses not to. (If you know how to get LinkedIn to provide better company page results, please leave a comment to let me and others know how!)

In the meantime, get more precise search results on LinkedIn by clicking the magnifying glass! -- Kathy
