By now we’re sure you’ve heard of Domino’s Pizza Magnate game. Or Google’s infamous “code jams.” But do you know the secret behind these recruiting strategies? And we don’t just mean the secret to why massive, global-dominant companies like these are using games to help identify who they want to work for them. We’re talking about the secret of how these gamified platforms can actually help you, dear job seeker, get hired by your employer of choice.
Looking for work is, well, hard work. It can easily become an all-consuming, full-time job all by itself.
