A hell of a way to do a job interview

59 second read


Job interviews suck. They’re stressful – and a terribly way to spend a Wednesday morning. It can be especially draining on gamers – whether they’re socially awkward, or just too damned busy trying to pilfer the remains of dead demons for loot. An advertising agency in Israel is catering to just that demographic – by conducting interviews for a programmer position through Blizzard’s Diablo III.

“Yossi Lubaton, the agency’s CEO, and a Level 60 Barbarian, will be waiting for worthy candidates who will rise up to the challenge,”  said BBR Saatchi & Saatchi  to VentureBeat. “They will play alongside Lubaton’s character in some of the toughest multiplayer missions the game has to offer. During the mission, the candidates will be asked a series of personal and professional question, and will also be judged by their game skills: fast reaction time, creative thinking and teamwork.”

One interviewee will walk away with Warmonger (an in-game weapon), and 1 million in-game gold coins (worth about $2 in real money)…oh, and quite possibly a job. More details here.
