In the new interface of LinkedIn, the regular search bar can act as an advanced search bar on it's own by structuring your searches. Here are the instructions for that:

You can use search operators directly from the search bar to narrow your results. Search operators complement the filters found on the right rail of the results page, as well as the boolean operators AND, OR, and NOT.

There are five search operators currently supported by LinkedIn:

  • firstname - Finds members based on first name
  • lastname - Finds members based on last name
  • title - Finds members based on their current job title
  • company - Finds members based on their current company (keyword search)
  • school - Finds members based on schools attended (keyword search)

For example, to search for current software engineers not named Doe, who have attended either Harvard University or Stanford University, try:

title:"software engineer" NOT lastname:doe school:(harvard OR stanford)

Tips for using search operators:

  • Use quotes for multi-word search terms.
  • Use parentheses for AND, OR and NOT phrases.
  • Commas should not be included in between multiple search operators.
  • Spaces should not be included in between the search operator and the search term, such as lastname:doe.

I went to that "Search" window upper left corner type clicked on advanced search and ended up at page for information technology and services in New Jersey

Please go to Don't click on Advanced Search if you see it, just type your search into the box based on the format I gave above. See if that works for you.

OK except I want to find people I do not know. Previously advanced search allowed you to search by title, by company current or prior, by a geographic radius put in the ZIP Code 25 miles 125 miles. So those factors you gave me don't help but also suggests I don't allow one to even search through their own network? Maybe I'll go to that my network and see
Expert:  Richard Kresslein replied 1 month ago.

With the parameters I gave you you can search for anyone on linked in even if you do not know them and are not connected with them yet. If you read through it again you will see that you can search by company current or prior and title, though it does not appear you can do geographic radius anymore.
