#4819. This board game helps students (grade 9 through adults) learn important skills in the job search process, especially filling out applications and interviewing. Players in the game play the role of the employer. They evaluate job applications and interview the job candidates. In order to win the game, players have to think critically and evaluate each candidate’s strengths and limitations in relation to the demands of the job.
In the process of making these decisions, players will look for and find positive actions, as well as problems and mistakes that applicants make, both in filling out the application and in the interview. The players will then reject the applicants who have made the mistakes or who have serious limitations.
