Gamifying the Job Search @ GSummit 2013

By: Jonathan Guerrera In: Gamify Your Goals 9 Aug 2013

 

As many of you know, one of the most popular blog posts I’ve written on this site discusses how I used gamification principles to help me get a job at Google.

This blog post quickly spread to Hacker News, Business Insider, and gave me another opportunity to speak about gamification at GSummit!

(Note: None of my other blog posts haven’t been remotely close to this level of success. This was definitely a black swan event!)

Check out the video above if you’d be interested in seeing the talk, which discusses the gamified framework I used to prepare for my interview.

Would love to hear what you think!

Unlimited Drive is the result of four years of diligent research on what drives people to achieve great things.
