Boolean Strings Network

The Internet Sourcing Community

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!

Work phone is not correct. These companies, resume, and candidate name are fictitious due to privacy reasons, and therefore, there is not a real phone number, but there is a phone number (fake) out there somewhere!

Andy,

This is depressing. I'm stumped. Baby step me through this so I put some sweat equity into this.

Thanks!

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.
I meant Chris. Sorry!
Bill, what is your email address so I may send you my detailed suggested solutions.

I didn't realize it was a fake person so I searched on google, wink, zabasearch, pipl, etc. after I found the 555 number, thinking he must be out there somewhere. :) I did find it interesting that the University he went to has an open alumni email directory, where anyone can search for alumni's email addresses. this person's was not included tho ;)
