BOOLEAN is one of the Popular & Powerful logical search combination system for Data Sourcing. As everyone is aware boolean basically has 3 Operators namely ‘AND’,’OR’,*-NOT*.These Combinational Operators together with the keyword’s for the Required Need can be used to fetch any type of date from any global platforms,portals,websites,etc.. via Search Engine For Example below is a boolean search string for buying PS4 Joystick Online through a search engine like google,yahoo,etc.. *(amazon OR flipkart OR “paytm mall”) AND (gaming OR console OR accessories) AND ps4 joystick* In the above Example we used, – ( ) to group various websites amazon, flipkart & “paytm mall” because they represent Similar Family (Wondering why “paytm mall” is in Double Quotes? Since we are in a specific need of getting joystick from the space where paytm actually have their e-commerce is paytm mall, which is a specific phrase. Likewise, while constructing boolean strings ,It’s necessary that we utilize ” “(double quotes) for obtaining specifically refined search results.) In the context of recruitment, We basically use boolean to fetch candidate’s profiles from various portals,platforms,etc.. Over my Recent Market Analysis, Majority of the recruiters utilize, ‘AND’ , ‘OR’ as their basic search string operators to fetch suitable candidatures. I hope this Answer provides you clear view on boolean P.S: But on my point of view the magical operator ‘NOT’ is utilized by the minimal crowd over the industry which actually carries different way/strategy to refine our outcome Effectively.
