Thanks to all who tried competing; we know this was a hard Sourcing Challenge!
Suzy's says: "I love research, social media and networks, marketing, communications, technology, & people. I am fascinated by how all these things tie together in a way we've never been able to do before. The possibilities are endless...In the right hands of course"
Suzy gets a subscription to theSocialCV worth $4,000; I hope she will keep us updated about its functionality.
We had participants from 400+ companies from 50+ counties try the tool out; imagine how busy they got just registering our members last week! Companies included several dozen Fortune 500 and publicly traded entities and many small recruitment consultancies.
I hope many of you enjoyed the event. We'll will have more in the future!
What's a win without the methodology explained, right? This reminds me of when I won the SourceCon 2007 Challenge # 2 and so as you can see, it has been about 5 years since I have delved into these type of web-ferreting challenges.
However, I may now be in a different field, as you can see from my G+ profile, but I still keep a pretty good pulse on what's going on in the sourcing and internet research world, and I love the tools which I try and beta test as soon as they are out.
So when Irina sent me a Tweet mentioning this contest (very, very clever methodology, Irina!), I thought-this sounds cool, I get to play with a new tool and test my abilities at the same time. So here's how it went (and hopefully you can follow the logic without having to be a subscriber to the SocialCV tool).
There were three questions that needed to be answered and it wasn't obligatory to use the SocialCV tool, although I chose to do so. Some of the links point to the profile on SocialCV, but for this article, I ensured that there are external links so everyone can access them. That's what's cool about SocialCV- you can see how many social profiles a person has in the dashboard and be able to click on each one-talk about a handy time saver:
Voila! There you have it! Looking forward to more cyber sleuthing.
Thanks a bunch to Irina and the SocialCV crew- much obliged!
