This project analyzes the potential of job recruiting in Second Life, a 3D virtual world. A survey focusing on both current users and non-users of virtual worlds was developed to explore the acceptance of Second Life as a job search tool and people's perceptions about potential virtual career fairs or virtual interviews. Results show that while users are not yet ready to make virtual worlds their primary job search tool, they are willing to try Second Life in conjunction with other conventional job search techniques.
