This week, we’ve been checking out a new online recruitment game by L’Oreal who have created a virtual world filled with corporate challenges.

The game, developed using some principles of psychometrics, could land you an interview at L’Oreal, but before you all go rushing off whispering ‘because I’m worth it’, the really interesting part for us is the pledge to feedback to each candidate on their performance (and suitability) for a potential career in one of five departments, ranging from finance to marketing.

The game is a bit too gimmicky and much too rigid to really understand the delicacies of placing the right candidate in their chosen career within a company culture where they will flourish. However, it’s a way of encouraging people to think outside or their predetermined career path and consider roles that perhaps they’ve never even heard of.

With looming cuts in the public sector about to reshape the employment market, Psycuity has been helping individuals at career crossroads and transferable skills to help find a new career path.
