I am forming two Boolean Sourcing Mastery Classes, for people who would like to bring their Internet Search skills to a true Boolean Master’s level:
- Boolean Mastery Class Level I (Beginner-to-Intermediate level),
- Boolean Mastery Class Level II (Intermediate-to-Advanced level).
Each group will meet by webinar, twice monthly, 90 minutes each, for a total of twelve sessions. Sessions will start mid-January 2011 and last for six months.
Every session will have follow-up on the previous session, lecture, demos, and interactive discussion. I will provide hand-outs, homework, and quizzes on the material. At the end of the semester participants will get a DVD with all the materials.
If you sign up, please expect to actively participate in discussions, practice and apply what you learn.
I will be available for Q&A (and also, if necessary, to catch up if you miss a session), by email and by phone.
Expect your sourcing mastery, productivity, and rate of success to rise with every session.
Here’s the Program Outline:
- An Overview of Sourcing
- Boolean Syntax
- Major Search Engines
- Advanced Boolean Operators
- Industry/Terminology Search
- Geography Search
- Advanced People Search
- Tips and Tricks
- People Search Engines
- Cross-Referencing Information
- Specialized Search
- Vertical Search Engines
- Meta-search Engines
- Semantic Search
- Deep Web
- Productivity Tools
- [For the Advanced Group] Custom Search Engines
- [For the Advanced Group] Advanced Sourcing Shortcuts
- New Tools and Sites (as they come up :))
At the end of the program the participants who successfully pass the final quiz will be awarded the titles and receive certifications of a Boolean Master or a Boolean Advanced Master (for the two groups).
You will feel confident, comfortable with tools and terminology, will successfully apply new sourcing skills and knowledge to your practice, and – most importantly – have fun doing advanced online sourcing.
