We’re excited to announce the kickoff of the World’s Greatest Sourcer, your chance to prove you’ve got the search skills to find and engage talent better than anyone else in the space. Seriously.

Are you a Boolean search string whiz? Are you calm, cool, and collected cold calling candidates? Got a few secret keywords in your arsenal to help you lock down those hard-to-find people?

We want to see your know-how in action. Sign up to join our contest and claim your title as the World’s Greatest Sourcer! We’ve joined forces with the Sourcing Institute to bring you the first sourcing decathlon of 2015 – 10 challenges ranging from a scavenger hunt to find candidate phone numbers, to building out your own strategy to source highly specialized candidates. 

The first place winner will receive a $2,500 cash prize, and the runner-up will be awarded complimentary training sessions from the Sourcing Institute for an official diploma in sourcing and recruiting, and a collection of SI President Shally Steckerl’s top 10 reads to boost your talent hunting skills. Pretty sweet, right?   

Brush up, enter to win, and get amped to show off your hiring chops with other top sourcers from all around the world. Your keyboard’s never seen so much action. 

The contest officially starts on March 24 at SourceCon 2015 Seattle, but we’re giving you and the best sourcers on the team to claim your seat for this competition now – and you can participate even if you're not attending SouceCon. (Note: The World's Greatest Sourcer challenge is not affiliated with the SourceCon Challenge.)

Ready? Register for the contest and head over to the Sourcing Institute.

Winners will be announced at on April 29 at the ERE Recruiting Conference.
