  [obscured]  /documents/people-search-api

LinkedIn has an API for searching their database. Would like to feed a webpage 10 must-have skills and run multiple searches to determine the best combination of skills. Many times, one profile does not have all 10. Best profile may have 1-5 +7 +9. It's that combination we are looking for... The form will need blanks for ten skills + a few synonyms for each... For example...

(sourcing OR source)+AND+(recruiting OR recuiter)+AND+staffing+AND+talent+AND+hires+AND+offers

If a search nets one profile, we grab it and put in in our own XML along with the criteria that got us that one profile. If we get 5 results, same thing. API already returns XML, we just need to combine the best XMLs and add the criteria that got us that profile (Skills 1,2,3,4,5,7,9)

Our ultimate goal is to enter 10 must-have skills, have LinkedIn tell us if searching for all 10 is realistic. If not, what's a few combinations that do generate some good profile results.
