Who’s up for a challenge!? We’ve all come across a great resume while searching for a candidate, but low and behold, it’s one of those pesky “Confidential Resumes.” There is no name, email address, phone number, or anything on there to indicate how to get in touch with the candidate. So either one of two things happens:

1. You don’t feel like messing with it, so you move on to the next resume OR
2. You click on the “contact this confidential candidate” link and the job board sends them a message, but you never hear back from them.

Wouldn’t you rather talk to the candidate directly? Perhaps call them on the phone, or email them directly to their email address? Your challenge is to find the contact information of a resume I have posted. The resume is posted on Careerbuilder.com, Monster.com, and Craigslist.org. You may find this confidential resume by searching for the following phrase: "boolean strings network contest.” If you do not have access to Careerbuilder or Monster, you may also view the resume at Craigslist.org:

http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/res/1284796663.html


The winner of this contest will be the first who provides the following for the candidate:

1. First & last name
2. Phone number
3. All companies worked for
4. Cities the candidate has lived in
5. Educational insitution of the candidate

Email the answers to the candidate’s email address as well as the steps you took to find the candidate’s information.

Good luck!

I love challenges! I'll send you the details of the person in a minute ;-)
Let's hope I sent it to the right one with his name...
Did you send an email to the candidate's email address?

Thought I did, but it may have been to the wrong person with the same name.

Still waiting on an email to the candidate's email address with the results. Remember to include:

1. First & last name
2. Phone number
3. All companies worked for
4. Cities the candidate has lived in
5. Educational insitution of the candidate
6. Method you used to find the resume/information
there we are...you should have it in your inbox. I didn't realize that the actual resume was on Monster, just thought it was the same as the one on craigslist (though that wouldn't have made much sense i guess).

I went the hard way around and found an email for a person with the same name.

Andy, all of the information, with the exception of number 4, is correct. Please send another email.

Andy Rouse has submitted all of the correct answers to the candidate's email address. I will leave the contest up for those of you who want to search just for the fun/challenge. If any of you would like to know my suggested methods, feel free to send me a message, and I will share my knowledge with you.
Chris,Will really appreciate if you can share the steps taken to find the candidate’s information (as you have mentioned in your challenge) by Andy with us as well, so that I can also know and learn it, as this is a daily challenge while working on an opportuntiy.

Thanks
MG
Andy...good job. I knew that #4 would be a question that would likely be missing at least one answer.

Thanks for the challenge.

MJ
Congratulations to Andy Rouse!

Chris and Andy, let's share the steps early next week - would you mind?

Andy, I need your address to ship you the Boolean DVD; please email irina@braingainrecruiting.com w/your info. If you'd like to attend a Twitter webinar on Monday, or get a Twitter DVD instead, that would be fine as well.

Thanks,
Irina
