ics MD "Greater Atlanta Area"
Let’s exclude the word “recruiter” from the above search:
physician cardiology diagnostics MD "Greater Atlanta Area" -recruiter
We got fewer results.
*** Are you ready for a sourcing CONTEST? ***
Contest warm-up: Did we just exclude recruiters’ profiles or did we also lose any relevant (non-recruiter) profiles in the search results?
CONTEST. Please give an example where excluding a keyword that we don’t want to see on a profile (like we just did) leads to excluding relevant results. Please either use the LinkedIn custom search engine or a search for LinkedIn profiles using your own Boolean search strings, either on Google or on Bing. Please explain how this happens. (Or, instead, explain why this can’t happen if you believe that it can’t.) Of course, it could be a search for any type of professional in any geographical area.
The first person who sends the correct answer to email@example.com gets a guest pass to the 2-part webinar
or a pass to a future webinar.
Please follow the directions very carefully.

notice given for this contest by the group that put it out, and people are more likely to have lots of pre-planned activities this time of the year. I for one was swamped this weekend - visiting my boyfriend whom I don't get to see often, a Christmas party on Saturday night, and big college football games all day on Saturday, one of which being my alma mater (yeah - reveals my priorities right!) So I think it's unfair to assume that the lack of participation was solely due to recruiting and sourcing types wanting to work alone.
On the other hand however, as a researcher I have worked with lots of different kinds of recruiters. There were several in the past who refused to accept my help sourcing on their projects because they didn't want to share any accolades when they made placements. So there's the proof of what you've laid out here.
When it's all said and done, we're all humans and different things motivate us :) this weekend, I was more motivated to spend time with my boyfriend watching my beloved Gators lose than I was to hunt down red balloons. Had the contest been another weekend, I might have been more motivated to participate. Thank you for posting this Julia; regardless of the outcome it certainly was a good lesson learned.…
