Today, however, Eschatos attended the Job Fair that Amazon was hosting in-world:
That's the aerial view of the event with a couple of insets of Eschatos ... who, despite this being supposedly a business event, was seriously over-dressed! He even got a shot with Jeff Bezos (well, with a magazine cover). If Eschatos had been running the event (which he would dearly like to be in a position to do in the future!) he'd have had a virtual "cut-out" of Mr. Bezos so that Avatars could get their snapshots with the boss!
Speaking of things that Eschatos would have done ... there were a LOT of things that were just "not right" at this ...
... as you can see there, the concept was that there were going to be "virtual first-round interviews" happening ... and they had "booths" (the little "huts" in the top pic) set up for various functions and divisions. But, nobody was manning these, there were a lot of "Amazon Employee" avatars around, but there were only a handful that were communicating with the visitors. Now, you have to remember that Eschatos' typist is a former Certified Meeting Professional, so this was driving the whole "team Eschatos" nuts ... and I guarantee that we would done a far better job of running this if WE were in charge! As you can see from the other pics here, there were no bodies in any of the desks, or (with the sole exception of the IMDB "booth") in the specific job areas.
It wouldn't have taken very much to have assigned two of the various Amazon folks to each of the "huts", had somebody AT the "reception desk" to specifically answer the "what/how?" questions, and provided more details about the whole process. Essentially, an Avatar visiting this today could drop their resume (on a SL notecard) in a mailbox, and try to ask questions of the folks milling about. Aside from picking up some free swag, that was the extent of it.
Needless to say, Amazon COULD USE SOME IN-WORLD MANAGEMENT/PROMOTION STAFF (hint, hint, nudge, nudge), and Eschatos hopes that is OCD-enhanced typist will be relentless on following up the few leads he was able to extract from this!
More later ...
