Eleven Diversity Sourcing Exam-Like Questions

booleanstringsBoolean, Diversity Leave a Comment

In 2020, Diversity is on everyone’s mind. Our first run of the Diversity Sourcing Training and Certification Program has exceeded our expectations in the way it has been received. We have an audience of thirty eager to learn recruiters. They show a “can’t wait to put my hands on it” attitude, which every trainer loves. They ask questions. They tell us that they love the program; not a single one has complained. The first seven people already graduated with a CDSP credential.

Our next program run is scheduled to start on November 10, 2020 and . Again, it will be limited to 30 people. Visit the page to sign up.

Soon, we will look at scaling up the program to have fewer monthly limitations.

I want to share with you some examples of the questions participants may get at the exams. (No, you are on your own!)

As you can see, all questions fall into six categories in application to Diversity sourcing:

  1. Exploratory Research
  2. Google Search
  3. X-Ray
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Social Sourcing
  6. Cross-Referencing

These questions are similar to the ones we have been giving at the general Sourcing Certification Exams.
