Gaming May Become an Important Route to Success with PA Jobs in London

Times are changing and it seems that some recruitment selection processes used are often very outdated, which means that some of the most enthusiastic and best qualified candidates slip through the net; this is often because they cannot relate to the outdated way that the interview is conducted.

There is a bright future for all those, who have a modern mind and with it comes the abolishment of guilt for the job seekers who spent all Christmas playing on their new games console. Deloitte have thrown themselves into the twenty-first century and have begun to interview and assess potential candidates by using gaming apps instead of the traditional and possibly outdated psychometric tests.

Recruitment Programmes for Companies

The apps that Deloitte use are purpose built recruitment programmes. They are designed by Arctic Shores, a recruitment-focused software developer, and the apps have been a big hit within the trials. The candidate plays the Firefly game and the statistics relayed back to the employer give them a better view of that person, their personality and what risks they are willing to take to get the optimum result.

Watching the interviewees navigating a purpose made app allowed the recruiters to assess the candidate's innovation, creativity, problem solving, decision making, and risk taking skills; all of which can be quality assets to possess in this field of business.

The Age Factor

Whilst the regular interview process is not being completely abolished across the board, it is important to point out that the target age for the position may need to be taken into account. For the younger generation the computer world is second nature, but the older generation may struggle with an interview of this type and therefore a balanced approach is essential to get the best candidate for the job.

School leavers and graduates who are all too often leaving university or school with top grades and no job to use them in may benefit from this approach and give them an opportunity to show their skills in a language they understand.

It is hoped that this approach will widen the diversity of the talent pool and contribute to social mobility. You can source the best candidates seeking PA jobs in London when you talk to them in their language and computers, the Internet, gaming and apps are the language of our modern society. These are the first in a series of measures which have been taken to reflect the needs of a changing workplace and a smartphone driven society.
