Job hunting always has struck me as a game, one with serious financial consequences of course, but still and all a game in which you try to find the one place that wants to hire you at any given moment in your career.
At various points, when you’re returning to work after being away, or when you’re over 50, the game gets harder than at others, but it is a quest after all, not unlike Jason looking for the golden fleece.
So I’m intrigued by a recent article I saw about some Canadian entrepreneurs trying to launch a job hunting board game called Worker Placement. They’ve already raised more than $7,000, according to their Kickstarter page.
Bravo for them. Anyone who can turn the job hunting game into a real game, and make some money from it, deserves a round fo applause.
