    This can be a great recruiting tool. We sponsored games and developed our own when I lead the US Army marketing program and we learned a great deal.

    I see eSports being HUGE for tech talent…and hard to penetrate as a “recruiter”..but so worth the effort. I bet gaming companies are the only ones currently trying it…I hope I’m wrong.

    Great article..the first one I’ve seen in the recruiting industry. I think VICE on youtube did a segment on e-sports..very interesting. I think Korea is the place to be for it right now.

    As a whole, it will be interesting to see how the gamer generation transitions into the workforce outside of the gaming industry. Like my 10 year old tells me when I talk to him about building his own games, “I just like to play them right now, Daddy.”

    Regarding David Lee’s comment about the Army recruiting from it…I hope Mom’s don’t see that…”I told you those games teach boys to be killers!”

    If I don’t get blocked from a comment post again, Ill continue telling what I know on disqus. But if I get blocked one more time, sum1 getting booted big time. 🙂 *ok now that that covered I got a big ???

    Why would anyone want to join Esports community? Sorry but it gave me a big chuckle, I played video games and played actual sports.
    I guess Im too caveman or something. But seriously I wish i could get it.
    But Im a savvy Business Admin major so your post(or the few paragraphs that i saw were true) and that is a valid point for business.
    But what made me sought more info at large is(And you peeps might wanna take notice on this)..
    Was the Blizzard SC2 ad in bnet launcher labeled “Join the esports community?” and it made me lol really.
    But maybe for your avid esports community dreamer hopeful there’s a way….Buy SC2 maybe you find that useful and I may buy the 3rd expac….but not to be a part of the esports community.(Cuz i don’t get that. Or get why I should join).
    Anyways come on and post on my ignorance if you want. Be a treat.
    Thanks,
