Global – Roblox, the metaverse game hub, has introduced a virtual company career centre on its platform, allowing prospective job candidates to participate in events, listen to podcasts and hold conversations with current employees. Primarily tailored for junior role applicants, the centre aims to attract individuals who grew up playing Roblox.
The centre features various sections, including an innovation lab, a podcast lounge and a library offering reading materials for interview preparation. While not yet operational, Roblox plans to begin initial interviews through the virtual experience soon.
This innovative approach highlights Roblox’s evolution in parallel with its maturing player base, tying in with what the future of work and recruitment could look like, as revealed in our Work States Futures. The platform recently introduced a 17+ category for more mature experiences as a significant number of its users, about 38%, were 17 and older in 2022.
Roblox’s virtual job centre taps into the future of workplaces, which could be conducted entirely in the digisphere. Are you, as a business, thinking about what the next generation of work could look like for you?
