To search, type a person's name into the search box at the top of any LinkedIn page. You can select from the suggestions in the dropdown list or submit your search for the full set of results.

Here are two ways you can search using specific criteria such as location, school, or industry:

  • Click the Advanced link to the right of the search box or at the top of the search results page.
  • Use the filter options on the left side of the search results page.

From the search results page, click a person's name to view their profile or click one of the links to the right of their information to take other actions. Move your cursor over the blue arrow to reveal additional options.
