An interesting article. I haven't had an interview for a long time but my sons have had a few in recent times with multi-national and national companies. At the moment the first step after a successful application has been a phone interview followed by an invitation to a 'casual' group interview before your more traditional interviewing scenario.

Do people see this form of application (as detailed in the link below) becoming more common and what effect will it have on the development of interviewing skills?

It is a sunny day as the young man sits on a park bench; a bird flies by and a leaf falls from a tree.
But things are about to get busy: he will be accosted by one friend offering a holiday deal, another offering a job opportunity in a coffee shop, and then by a series of people demanding help with their mobile phones.
How he responds in these scenarios will determine if he remains in the running for a job or whether he will end up back on the bench watching the birds.
However, even though the leaves are dropping he won't feel any autumn cold, as he (or indeed, she, if you so choose) is an avatar; a cartoon character created to vet would-be employees.
