Weary Job Hunters Seek Virtual Outlet
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
And if you're one of those travelers who's tired of boarding a plane to get to your next meeting, you can take heart because there are other options, like virtual jobs. That's our last word in business today - virtual jobs.
You can have an exciting career without getting out of your chair. The job board careerbuilder.com has set up kiosks on the virtual site SecondLife so that jobseekers fed up with real-world employment can choose from a list of online jobs - jobs including professional golfer or computer genius. Applications or interviews are not necessary, maybe because the pay is virtual too.
