    You know, I’m not sure about this.  I just went to your site and see a preponderance of personal images.  In many states it’s not legal to accept, retain or take photos/images of potential employees.  In fact, we are required to removed the images from submission that come in with them.  In many states, you can only retain or take images of actual hires and only for security purposes.  On the other side of this, it just seems like such a lazy way to do this.  Video conferencing is a great tool, however, I don’t see how playing a video game will help my recruiters to find the SVP of Audit we’re currently seeking.  I cannot read a facial reaction or body language from video gaming testing results.

    This article boils down to create-and-promote-a-skill-game-as-a-contest. It’s really a social network version of asking someone to show their portfolio at an interview, trying to scale it in a way that encourages additional motivated applicants, but also in a way that illustrates ability better than a resume, where skills are easily exaggerated. As the previous commenter said, it doesn’t work for people like VPs of Audit whose skills are not really measurable in a contest submission. Whoever figures that out is the next Jeff Taylor/Mark Zuckerberg.
