Question ID: 779003
I own a company that provides material handling automation solutions.
I am looking to hire an exceptionally talented, energetic, smart, etc.
individual who is being held back by virtue of working for a company
that does not provide the sorts of unlimited growth path that we do.
We recognize talent. Formal education credentials are not a factor.
Candidates must live within commuting distance of Conshohocken PA
(near Philadelphia). Key words are PLC, bar code, material handling,
automation, packaging, conveyors. Good writing skills wouldn't hurt.
We will make the job to fit the exceptional candidate.

A researcher could do this for you, but it's against the terms of
service for us to post personal information in this public forum,
and it's also prohibited for us to have personal (email, e.g.) 
contact with customers, so there's really no way to provide you
with the results of such efforts.

I'd suggest you post an ad on MySpace classifieds. You can select
the state and city or cities in which the ad will appear. You need
to create a profile to do so, but this can be done with minimal
effort. You could essentially post what you've posted here, there.

The other non-ordinary site to post would be Craigslist, which is
scoured daily by any number of job seekers. You can post in the
Philadelphia section, here:

What you say makes sense. However, I would still like to enlist help.
Is there any way I can ask the question that would get me useful
information and compensate for the help?

I did see one question answered with references to resumes that were
on the web, presumeably in the public domain, and therefore not
subject to a question of privacy violation. In those instances there
was no personal information posted, only URL links.

What do you think? Can you help?

BTW - does the price I postd make this worth working on?

I better understand your intended approach now, but my reaction
is as follows: The right to search resumes is limited, on, I 
believe, the majority of job search sites, to registered employers.
This reduces the accessibility to researchers. Without such access,
resumes would be limited to those which are free-floating and 
independently posted, which is a severe restriction.

Additionally, some of the details you have listed, such as 
commuting distance from Conshohocken, PA, and "will make the
job to fit the exceptional candidate", are less likely to be
specified or identifiable in a resume, and more likely to be
readily recognized by prospective applicants if such specifics
are posted in a targeted ad.

Let me know where this takes you...

Do you know what a 'sockdolager' is? I've heard it defined as an
insoluble problem. A 'spherical sockdolager' is one that is insoluble
when viewed from any direction.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Here's a page on sockdolager which has a different take on it:
