executivesontheweb.com launches Executive Checkers for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
 
executivesontheweb.com the leading global executive recruitment website has launched Executive Checkers (Draughts), a new mobile game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.The executive jobs and career website which is now celebrating its 10th year in business created the game to help executive job seekers improve their interview skills whilst playing an enjoyable and relaxed game of checkers (draughts).Justin Finch, Executive Producer, comments The idea was to create an interactive mobile game for executives which utilises the branding of executivesontheweb.com. The combination of an interview question and answer tutorial and the classic game of Checkers seemed like an appropriate match for a handheld deviceThe objective of the main game is to complete 3 interview stages by beating the employer at a game of checkers. Each completed level presents the player with a letter confirming that they have been selected for the next interview stage. If the player completes the final interview (Level 5) then they will be rewarded with a FREE professional CV courtesy of executivesontheweb.com.The game has a variety of features which allow the player to beat the employer, computer or a friend. Although beating the employer is essentially the main game mode, other game modes include playing against the computer with 5 levels of difficulty or against a friend with or without a countdown timer. The countdown timer feature creates a competitive element to the 2 player mode and allows the users to have either a fast or slow tactical game. The interview questions and answers can either be viewed onscreen or listened to through headphones or the device speakers. The interview answers are provided by a professional interview and vocal coach and provide the player with a refreshing view on how to answer those standard but sometimes difficult interview questions.Fergus McClelland, Vocaltrademark, comments "This game is a great way of learning highly advanced interview skills quickly. Some of the answers are non-obvious and the more you think about the question, the better your answer will be. We always learn best when it's fun to learn."A survey from more than 500 executives within the executivesontheweb.com website in September 2010 revealed that 72% of candidates do not spend enough time learning how to overcome difficult interview questions and 54% of candidates feel that they could improve their interview skills.
 
The game features a wealth of settings allowing international users the opportunity of creating their own unique rules. Players can also access the interview question and answer database, change the colour of the board and access their personal achievements and scores within the Apple game centre.Justin Finch, Executive Producer, comments Executive Checkers combines a classic game of checkers and a professional interview question and answer tutorial, making the whole learning process an enjoyable and fun experience.
