Gild is a startup that launched today out of TechCrunch Disrupt and can conceptually be described as LinkedIn meets OKCupid. Social gaming through CV’s is definitely a prospect that I’d be interested in trying out.
What’s thoroughly disappointing though is that the tests that comprise the “social gaming” part are stupid. The “software engineering aptitude” gives you way too little time for in-depth, scribbling-necessary questions that cover logic, algebra, and economics (?). The “HTML/XHTML” test covers CSS too for some reason and the questions/answers are almost unbelievably crappy and a decade-outdated. See the screenshot above for a laugh.
Honestly, I’d be laughing a little harder if I didn’t just spend an hour trying to get a high score on crappy tests. Sigh.
