Play This New Video Game & Land a Job

Play This Game Win a JobEmployers Use Mobile Games to Recruit New Employees

(MarketWatch) Last Fall Barclays, the British multinational banking and financial services company began testing a new tool for attracting potential young job applicants — a mobile video game.

More than 4500 mostly college seniors have played the Barclay’s version of Stockfuse a free-stock trading game that uses real time Market data–about 8% have applied for positions at the international bank and so far, 17 have landed a job.

Such apps aim to shed light how a potential candidate may perform in a job based on how they perform a game. With Stockfuse  for example, what securities a player invests in and the returns achieved typically provide plenty of data for consideration. Games from other developers range from solving mazes to managing a sushi restaurant.

Depending on the game app, developers build a detailed analysis of a players abilities and share them an interested employer. An evaluation may tag a person as a potential leader for demonstrating tenacity or dismiss another persons ability for making ‘snap decisions’ and showing poor judgment.

Some games take just a few minutes while others can go on indefinitely, with players resuming wherever they left off each time they log in.

Hillary Clinton Admits “We’re Gonna Put a Lot of Coal Miners and Coal Companies Out of Business…Move Away From ALL Other Fossil Fuels”

Hillary Clinton Tweet@Hillary Clinton Will Tweet Anything When Its Politically Convenient 

(Daily Caller) At a CNN Democrat Townhall Event in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend, Hillary Clinton told the crowd that her energy policies are “gonna put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Hillary Clinton went on to say how the government (taxpayers) have to invest in “clean, renewable energy. We’re gonna make it clear that we don’t want those people–those people labored in mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories. Now we’ve got to move away from coal  and all other fossil fuels but I don’t want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy we relied on.”

Huh??? That’s talking from both sides of her mouth.

When did it become the American Taxpayers business to pick winners and losers and choose which industries to “invest in” (favor with taxpayers money) and which to bankrupt?
