Here is today's Sourcing Challenge!

Find an Excel file with a list of companies with full contact info, where one column in the table will contain only this in every row (below its title):

OR

  1. Email the URL for the list to test@braingainrecruiting.com
  2. Also, email the shortest possible search string on Google or on Bing that would lead to finding the list.

The person who sends the longest list wins. In case of a tie, the person with the shortest search string wins.

Deadline: Monday June 25th EOB.

Prize: the Full Set of Materials for the People Sourcing Certification Program - ABT (a $399 value).

I did it!  Have sent you the URL to check.  Was a real challenge but I learnt so much along the way.  I have realised that the only way to learn this stuff is to DO IT and practice constantly, and learn from each set of results and adapt.  In the end, I had about 8 tabs open!

Well said! :) Nice job solving, too.

The Sourcing Challenge is over. Thanks to all who tried solving it.

We got over 40 entries from recruiters, sourcers, and researchers from all over the world.

Congratulations to Chris Atkinson (San Francisco Bay Area) who found a file with over 16K records that even has an "OR" in its name! Great job!

The runner-up entries came from Geraldine (South Africa) and Balasz (Hungary).

Chris gets the Big Prize of the People Sourcing Program complete set of materials (a $399 value).

See you online! :)
