By Skip Freeman,


When we think of the term “game,” most of us usually think of something that is a diversion, sport or some form of competitive entertainment. Chances are, most of us don’t even consider that many other things in life also have all the characteristics of a game . . . such as the hiring process. Make no mistake about it, in virtually every sense, hiring is a game!
