Find Full Names on LinkedIn

Quick Summary:

Find the name or full name of a person of interest in LinkedIn via the People Also Viewed list, typically located in a right-hand menu on the search results page.

For whatever reason, you would like to find the full name, say, of a CIO at Company X whose name appears as Jon S. in a LinkedIn search result.

One simple solution is to take advantage of the People Also Viewed list that typically appears on the right-hand side of a person’s profile. In our experience, only full names appear in the People Also Viewed list. So, while you’re viewing Jon S’s profile, click on the first person in his People Also Viewed list. You may see Jon S’s full name in that person’s People Also Viewed list. The second line of information (usually the person’s job title) will help you confirm the match. If Jon S’s full name doesn’t appear, try the next person on Jon S’s People Also Viewed list. And so on.
