The Future of Recruitment: Avatar Meets Ready Player One

The recruitment market is constantly evolving, and the next 15 years are poised to be a period of significant change. As technology advances, we can expect to see a number of innovative and new recruitment methods, after all be believe in #PossibilitiesEverywhere.

In this article, we will explore some of the most exciting possibilities for the future of recruitment. We will discuss virtual reality job interviews, skill evaluations through gaming, augmented reality, AI, personalised career matching, and even working while sleeping! *Please note this article is just for fun!

Virtual Reality Job Interviews

One of the most exciting developments in the world of recruitment is the rise of virtual reality (VR). VR technology has the potential to revolutionise the way job interviews are conducted. In a VR job interview, candidates would be able to interact with employers in a simulated environment. This would allow candidates to showcase their skills and experience in a more immersive and engaging way.

For example, a software engineer could interview for a job at a virtual reality company by entering a simulated office environment. The candidate could then interact with virtual colleagues, solve coding problems, and even give a presentation. This would allow the employer to get a better sense of the candidate’s skills and abilities in a real-world setting.

Skill Evaluation through Gaming

Another way that technology could revolutionise the recruitment process is through the use of gaming. For example, a company that is hiring for a customer service position could create a gamified assessment that tests the candidates’ ability to resolve customer issues. The assessment could be set up like a video game, where candidates would have to complete a series of challenges in order to progress. This would allow the company to assess candidates’ skills in a fun and engaging way!

AI-Assisted Resume Reviews

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking leaps and bounds and having a major impact on the recruitment process. AI-powered resume review tools will be able to help employers to quickly and efficiently screen resumes. These tools can also identify candidates who are a good fit for specific roles.

For example, an AI-powered resume review tool could be used to scan resumes for keywords, dates or information that are relevant to a particular job opening. The tool could then rank the resumes in order of relevance, making it easier for recruiters to find the best candidates.

Personalised Career Matching

AI could be used to develop personalised career matching platforms. These platforms will use data to match candidates with jobs that are a good fit for their skills, interests, personality and even genetics.

For example, a personalised career matching platform could ask candidates to complete a personality test and then match them with jobs where they will be a good fit in the team are right for their personality type.

Recruitment through brain-computer interfaces

One step further, brain-computer interfaces will allow users to control computers with their thoughts. In the future, brain-computer interfaces could be used to assess candidates’ cognitive abilities and personality traits. This could help employers to make more informed hiring decisions (in this instance definitely don’t use the old trick of imagining the interviewer naked!).

Avatar Bodies

In the future, we can envision a world where employees have Avatar bodies, blurring the lines between the physical and virtual realms. Professionals will have the option to create virtual representations of themselves, that can be used in the real world. These customisable bodies will enable employees to interact with colleagues, attend meetings, and collaborate in both physical and virtual environments while working remotely.

Avatar bodies will provide a new level of flexibility and freedom, allowing professionals to transcend the typical limitations such as physical distance and location, human strength and even open doors to those who have physical disabilities.

Working While Sleeping

Finally, we can also envision a future where people want to maximise their non-working time and work while they are sleeping! This may sound like science fiction, but it is actually a possibility thanks to the development of new technologies. For example, scientists are developing sleep devices that can induce lucid dreaming. In a lucid dream, people are aware that they are dreaming and can control their actions. This could be used to allow people to work on complex problems or brainstorm new ideas while they are asleep.


The future of recruitment is an exciting one, with only our imaginations as the limits. Due to advances in technology, we can expect to see a number of exciting new methods emerge in the next 15 years. These will help to make the recruitment process more efficient, effective, and engaging for both candidates and employers. So, gear up, level up, and get ready to take your career to new dimensions!
