There are several ways to search for people with specific titles.
- Enter keywords in the “Job Title” field
- Open the person advanced window and use the “Job Function” and “Management Level” options
Using Keywords in the Job Title Field
Typing in general key words will produce the best results. For example, if you are looking for contacts that are Vice Presidents of Corporate Finance, it’s best to type finance into the “Job Title” field and then open the person advanced window and select VP-Level under the “Management Level” section.
- ZoomInfo does not anchor search terms. For example, if you are looking for contacts with auditing experience, it’s best to use the search operator OR and type in audit or auditor or auditing
- Less is more. A title like account executive or account manager is more easily searched by using the word account
- Always enter in multiple variations of the same position. For example, supply chain OR logistics. Different companies refer to the same position in different ways
- Use the “Title” field in conjunction with the “Company Name” or Industry” fields to return contacts whose background experience makes them a good target
- If you are seeing unexpected search results, you can build in a NOT phrase in the “Job Title” field to filter out undesirable words and phrases. For example, if your results contain film directors and you searched for Director-Level contacts at an entertainment company, you can type in director NOT film NOT movie NOT television NOT TV
Use the Person advanced window to choose the role you desire from our comprehensive list. Once you make a selection, ZoomInfo will look for words and phrases in our database connected to that role.
