Yes. Business suit not necessary, just send your avatar. The Wall Street Journal reports that a big recruitment-advertising firm hosted a job fair in the Second Life virtual world “with employers such as Hewlett-Packard Co., Microsoft Corp., Verizon Communications Inc. and Sdexho Alliance SA” and there’ll be another one in August. it’s now possible to meet with recruiters without actually showing up for a job interview.” So a ZDNET blogger decided that, with “future job prospects in mind,” it might be prudent to revise some earlier statements about Second Life, for example, changing this comment… “Second Life has gone from zero to cliche in record time as people sit around admiring their avatars. The dirty little secret: It’s a productivity drain”… to this view: “Second Life is great. I love my avatar, which is some rabbit type thing if I recall. It’s a great productivity tool.” Not that I’m suggesting we parents need to do any backpedaling from comments about teen time spent in virtual worlds. But a little open-mindedness might not hurt.
