Race for a Place — An Employment Simulation

In this unique game, select students play the role of human resources managers making multiple hiring decisions about candidates who have applied for one of three ‘open positions.’ As participants determine which candidates are best for ‘their company,’ students begin to connect their academic choices and behaviors in and out of school to their ability to get a job, thus catalyzing appropriate changes in their own academic performance and personal behaviors. They learn what they must do to get a good job, what they should do, and what they absolutely should not do.*

*Race for a Place is offered to schools participating in The Internship Depot’s programs as an activities enhancement for a reasonable fee.
