Who knew that a LinkedIn improvement could affect existing searches?! Found this really useful to make sure I didn't lose potential candidates!
LinkedIn has changed the search syntax – in LinkedIn Recruiter only. Bottom line: AND is no longer optional in LIR; the quotation marks are added by default around keywords – UNLESS you use any Boolean operators (AND, OR, or NOT). Here are some of the consequences: Your saved searches may be broken. Your search history, too, will have entries that may or may not work as before. The link “View the results in recruiter” when you search from a personal account will take you to the same results as in personal – but if you start editing a field and exit without changing, the results will be off.
