LinkedIn Recruiter search by "fortune" size

One of the hard things about recruiting for a Fortune 100 company is that job titles don’t really translate.  If I conduct a search for a senior leadership role, like a Director or a VP, I’m going to get results containing mostly folks from small/medium businesses.   I’m sure these are talented folks, but I’m not going to engage a candidate for a Director role at huge global software company just because he/she is the VP of Marketing for Bob’s Soda Shack.

A nifty filter on LinkedIn Recruiter lets me ONLY get results from Fortune-level companies of my choosing.  So for this Director search for Microsoft, I chose to only see results from Fortune 50 and Fortune 51-100 companies.  Fewer results, but those results are super targeted in terms of cultural, environmental, and responsibility fit.

I’m not sure if most other job boards offer this, but I haven’t seen it before.  Because of functionality like this, LinkedIn Recruiter is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools.
