It might be worthwhile, but gamification is not really new, and these days
just about everyone is doing it.

We have a new chapter on emerging technology that talks about gamification,
gaming, avatars, big data etc

Arthur, W., Jr., Doverspike, D., Kinney, T. B., & O’Connell, M. (in press).
The impact of emerging technologies on selection models and research:
Mobile devices and gamification as exemplars. In J. L. Farr & N. T. Tippins
(Eds.), *Handbook of Employee Selection, Revised Edition. *New York, NY:
Routledge*. *

And to repeat what I have said elsewhere, not sure any of this matters when
we continue to require people to fill in a mind numbing number of boxes
over and over to apply for jobs. Not to mention often creating three
separate login ids and passwords. Multiply that by people not just applying
for your job, but probably 8-10 jobs in a single day (that being as many
jobs as they can apply for given it takes an hour to fill out a job
