Welcome to the Boolean String Bank, a String directory for Sourcers, Recruiters and other search professionals

A Boolean string is a logical combination of keywords and boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT). In the context of a search, they are used to:

  • Summarize and simplify search criteria
  • Assemble and prioritize search parameters to be executed by a search engine

It is important to note that a Boolean string is not a search directive but rather an example of a search approach - it represents a guide on how to both choose and structure keywords to achieve the best results from a search platform.
