How Playing Videogames Could Help You Find Your Perfect Job
A new company aims to discover talent by examining players' in-game actions
Game-based hiring platform Scoutible, which officially launched this week in NYC at TechCrunch Disrupt, has combined the areas of gaming and job hunting. The company aims to improve hiring and retention by using immersive games to find the right candidate for different positions.
Scoutible offers users the chance to play a 20-minute game to learn about themselves. It uses proprietary game technology from Harvard and Stanford, which learns from the player's unique actions in the game to measure their skills and discover their talents. This could then lead to them being scouted by top companies based on their strengths.
