CONTEST: For each of the screenshots, please explain: A) what sort order was selected. B) why the search has brought up these results.

(1)

(2)

(3) 

Submissions: Please send your guesses to irina@sourcingcertification.com with the subject #sourcing

Deadline: EOB PDT July 9, 2013.

Prize: either a webinar of your choice from our Training Library or one hour 1-on-1 sourcing with Irina Shamaeva

Please answer the exact questions above and submit the answers by emailing only. Other ways of submissions or not answering these exact questions may disqualify participants.

Good luck! :)

Congratulations to Vince Szymczak, Sourcing Recruiter - Shared Recruitment Centre, EMEA, Randstad Sourceright, Budapest, Hungary, who is the winner. Vince gets a webinar of his choice from our Training Library or one hour 1-on-1 sourcing with Irina Shamaeva

Vince was the only person who has submitted all of the correct answers. Well done! 

So do we get to see the answers so the rest of us can see where we went wrong?

Way to go Vince.

Rob

Thanks Robert:)

Here are the answers I submitted:

(1)
A: Location
B: The search engine in this case is looking for people with the letter combination "UK" in the Location field (and not for people who live in the United Kingdom).
(2)
A: Can not be determined, since we have 0 results - could be any order.
B: This search engine is not supporting Boolean operators.
(3)
A: Company
B: The search engine was looking for people with job titles including the word "founder".
Vince

Thanks Vince, very helpful and again congratulations on being the winner. Well done.

Rob
