Submission + - HP Recruiting using Second Life

virtualJobsGetPaidVirtualMoney writes: A Computer Science student graduating with a bachelor's degree looking for a full-time position has been contacted by HP for an virtual interview.

Representatives from Hewlett Packard have released the following opportunity. HP will be interviewing in the virtual world for real-world jobs! This is a first for HP and encourage students to try it out, especially if they are already Second Life players.
Interviewing is already so subjective, would this method of interviewing truly yield a qualified candidate?

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
