Second Life: do you have one?
So I'm really just talking about the social networking/virtual world site, Second Life.Â As part of its virtual atmosphere, SL converts users into avatars,Â also referred toÂ asÂ "residents." SL has so far attracted 7 million registered users, and Sweden recentlyÂ openedÂ aÂ Second LifeÂ embassy, complete withÂ a room dedicatedÂ to WWII humanitarian Raoul Wallenberg. DuringÂ the month of May, Second Life hosted theirÂ first virtualÂ job fairÂ ("In World Interviews. Real World Jobs.") on TMP Island.
"We see this as a new vehicle that we will be a pioneer of reaching a new generation of candidates and connect them in a distinct way that's as entertaining as informative," said Kelly McCorkle, Verizon's manager of recruitment, operations and strategies. "We need to provide recruiters with the right tools to bring the right talent."
Did anyone, by chance, attend?
