What followed next was a very heated debate on what rubbish it was, and 'how can you make up avatars and be someone your are not to get a job, and how could companies trust you anyway?'. While I sort of defended Second Life as a cutting edge medium for recruiting, I did struggle to defend that last comment, because I guess I am not really sure about it myself!!
So, if you can elaborate further and tell me why Second Life actually works - not just for identifying and finding killers obviously - in the world of recruitment, with changing avatars etc, then I could continue my argument in time for the next episode!!!
