    Minneapolis, Minnesota — May 24, 2005 — For most people, looking for a new job isn’t much fun. In fact, the prospect of looking for a new job is so daunting that they often refuse to do so until laid off. That isn’t healthy or wise, according to experts at CollegeRecruiter.com (https://www.collegerecruiter.com), the highest traffic career site used by job hunting students and recent graduates and the employers who want to hire them.

    To add a measure of entertainment to the site’s extensive job postings and employment resources, CollegeRecruiter.com has launched a new gaming section. The goal is to attract potential candidates to the site and build their awareness of job sites before an employment crisis strikes.

    “Since going live in 1996, we’ve tried to design our site to be fast and easy-to-use with as many relevant job postings as possible and more employment-related articles and other content than most candidates could hope for,” explained Steven Rothberg, President and Founder of CollegeRecruiter.com. “But we’ve always struggled with how to make it more . . . well, fun. Today, we’ve taken a big step toward that goal with the release of our new On-line Games section at www.CollegeRecruiter.com/games.”

    CollegeRecruiter.com currently features three games:

    • Stumbling Distance Game – Can you get the sleepy college student home before he falls over?

    • Puzzle Game – Flip and sort out the pieces to the photo, or upload a photo of your own and do the same!

    • Snowboard Game – Experience all the jumps and acrobatics you’ve dreamed of being able to complete, but without the frostbite!

    “Early feedback about the games is overwhelmingly positive,” added Rothberg, “except for the handful of people who half-jokingly threatened us with lawsuits after they started playing the games at work and ended up getting chewed out by their supervisors. Seriously, we were thrilled that they enjoyed the games as much as we enjoyed creating them.”
