West Dundee, IL (PRWEB) February 20, 2009
As more companies are outsourcing their operations and cutting back their on-site staff job competition is fierce for the eight million Americans who have lost their jobs in the face of today's economic recession. Now, job hunters can increase their employability, pump up their interview skills, fine tune their resume and become serious players in today's competitive job market using a new virtual video game from CrootPad.com.
The bottom line is that today's job search is more competitive than ever, with demographic boundaries wiped out by the Internet and employers opening up previously restricted job offers to attract the largest pool of qualified candidates from around the world. Job hunters need to have classier resumes and stronger interview skills than ever before if they're going to be serious competitors in the global market.
CrootPad uses a fun, Trivia Pursuit style question and answer format to help job hunters get from point A to point Z (literally) while pumping up their career building knowledge banks. Players accumulate points to get their cars across the finish line by answering important resume, interview and job skill questions.
"Are you smart enough to drive the Smart Car to the end point?" laughs CrootPad's Tom Gregory. "The goal of this site is to help users to prepare….and [it's] covering all aspects [of the job hunt], including job hunting, gathering job leads, resume and interview [skills], getting a job offer, surviving the first month, [the steps to] career advancement and surviving a layoff…through a game."
Resume and interview skills aren't the only thing career minded professionals can pick up at CrootPad. The site also offers numerous other tools and resources related to building a strong career foundation that will benefit everyone, regardless of their current employment status.
"[Connect] with recruiters who have your favorite employers as clients," says Gregory. "CrootPad wants to empower your career by going beyond a reactive job search or resume posting."
