A Free Tool to Expand Your Small LinkedIn Network


On this video, I discuss a free website,, to help you identify people to recruit or network with in case you have a small LinkedIn network.

NOTE: I no longer do recruiting so that part is no longer relevant


This is a show about a free website so that if you are looking for people in the United States and don't have access to LinkedIn recruiter, and you want to expand your network, this is a perfect tool for you. It's a Google custom search engine that's designed to search the entire list of LinkedIn public profile is in the United States. It's completely free. There are no hidden costs. The only thing you need to know is the basics of Boolean search.

If you go to and do a search, you will find the search box in the middle of the page. Nothing more. Nothing less.

What you do is enter the search terms just as you would in a Boolean search. You will also need to include how LinkedIn describes the geographic area that you are trying to find someone in.

Using the example of the New York area, If you are doing a search in New York, it might say,, "New York area." Whatever the LinkedIn term is for that particular area, put it in quotes. Hit enter and will return results from everyone who has a LinkedIn profile in the United States in that area.
