New game offers the possibility
What is Second Life?
Second Life is an online virtual reality game in which you can use real money to conduct Monopoly-style business with other players.
At least 10 million people pay $15 and up a month to play these games, and maybe 20 million more log in once in a while.
Real life companies are using it for demos of their products and Jerry predicts that it will replace Webex as a place for online meetings.
Recruiting and Virtual Reality
Recruitainment is the use of online games to test candidates for jobs. It sounds like a virtual world can offer huge possibilities in this arena.
And, for that matter, when is the Recruitosphere going to set up shop in a business fantasy land where an argument about metrics can end in quasi-physical violence?
Or, in which you can interview your LinkedIn candidates in your virtual offices or offsite at Virbucks.
