CNN.coms reporter Katie Benner reported in her article I got my job through Second Life discussed how real life corporations are interviewing and hiring people in Second Life. Katie says,

Case in point: the most radical dotcom 2.0 recruitment wave is happening in virtual reality thanks to Second Life. Instead of posting a resume on Monster.com that will hopefully net a flesh-and-blood job interview, your avatar can be interviewed and hired all within Second Life, often for jobs possible only in virtual.

Katie quotes Brandon Berger, senior strategist at OgilvyInteractive’s Digital Innovation Unit as saying “People who have been in SL since its inception might not be professional content developers, but they have become experts” and Ogilvy hires quite a few people from within Second Life to help big name companies who want to be in Second Life.

Berger goes on to state in Katie’s article, “People who have been in SL since its inception might not be professional content developers, but they have become experts.”

Therefore, if your are an expert builder in Second Life… chance are that there is a real world company looking for you!

Are you still calling it a “game”, maybe you should give another thought session on just how many games produce real life employment.

    It’s not as easy as it seems, working in Second Life. Real-life companies are full of people wanting to try their own hands at building, and also full of people who don’t understand what they are paying for when they buy into SL.

    Getting known for building or creation in SL is difficult, too, especially now that the world is so big.
