Sourcing Contest

Those of us who were present would know that the Mega Sourcing Contest was the grand finale of the Monthly Sourcing Contest that was held for the duration of 12 months. This Contest began in the month of April 2014 and ended in March 2015 with the winners gaining entry in to the Mega contest automatically.

Mega Sourcing Contest

Chinmay Chavan the Lead Trainer at SourcePRO, was the host. Just like most contests are you’d know the feeling if you’ve ever had an opportunity to participate in one. You’re nervous, anxious, scared & excited all at once. Sounds overwhelming, doesn’t it? The same was the story of the participants we had from several companies such as…

The contest commenced with the contestants all fired up for the next big challenge having successfully completed the first challenge in the Sourcing Contest. Before the contest began they were briefed about the rules, regulations and procedure of the Contest. It was divided in to 3 milestones where the 1st milestone was to search for the target individuals name and email it to the organisers. After which they would be sent an email containing clues to complete the 2nd milestone. They had to use the information they gathered in the previous milestone and the 3rd milestone was a webpage.

The Final Decision

At the end of the event the participants were presented with mementos to mark them as the finalists of the Mega Sourcing Contest. Unfortunately it wasn’t solved as planned by the organisers due to the difficulty level in spite of them putting in their best efforts. The contest wasn’t completed as expected hence the team decided to reward the first individual to solve the 2nd milestone. Therefore Britto Ambrose was declared the winner and presented with a certificate, an award and a slick hp Laptop.

To those who were present, I think it’s safe to say that overall it was an amazing contest where the participants put in great efforts and was enjoyed by all participants including the host. The competitors displayed great sportsmanship and were not defeated just yet.

The responses, reviews and feedback that Sourcing Adda received were accepted. The views thus expressed were considered and the decision was made to conduct yet another contest. To get updates of future activities and to participate in another amazing contest follow @sourcingadda. Be prepared for another year of fun and amusement that is sure to blow your mind. In all earnestness we request you our patrons to give suggestions for future activities and blog topics to come. I request everyone to check in for a newer and bigger version of the contest in June.

The Recruitment field is just like any other field when it comes to presumptions that keep circulating within the field itself. Both recruiters and job seekers tend to fall prey to these myths. These are generally people who are usually on their feet at all times, sourcing for candidates.

During the process of recruitment these individuals aren’t always aware of the rumours spreading around and I can’t blame them because there are always new rumours floating around on a regular bases. The least I can do to help is to highlight the ones that I’ve come across to help them identify the myths that they are probably following.
