Company with Job Opportunity Makes Applicants Play Fortnite During Interview

A European based entertainment agency is hiring two new interns – and will interview them over a friendly match of Fortnite Battle Royale.

It is perhaps the most bizarre yet intriguing recruitment tactic yet, as Dare.Win, an International Entertainment Agency that works with clients such as Netflix, Spotify and YouTube, is using Fortnite to sort out the best candidates.

With offices in Paris and Berlin, and over 50 ‘Darewinners’ on staff, Dare.Win is hiring two ‘creative interns’, but you’ll also need to know your way around a game of battle royale.

Titled the ‘FORTNITE JOB INTERVIEW’, it is exactly as described.

“Add DAREWINFR on PSN, we’ll interview you during a Fortnite game.”

The interview style is to get a more exciting and fun experience for both the interviewee and the interviewer, which Dare.Win thinks can be helpful in finding the right person for the job.

Creative director Damien Foui told The Drum:

“We always recruit our talents through uncommon ways. It makes the challenge more exciting and so much more funny for both sides, compared to a basic job interview.

The way someone plays can say a lot about their personality, especially about decision-making and how they deal with problems. We are looking for people that are cool enough to join us in an untraditional way.”

It’s true that Fortnite, as with other battle royale games, could test an applicants resolve under pressure, but Dare.Win may actually be trying to put candidates at ease.

Fortnite is by far the most popular video game on the market right now, and it seems like everyone and their dog is playing it, so it should be familiar territory for most.

However, if you are not part of this group, and don’t like Fortnite, fear not, you can also send an email to [email protected] and apply the old fashioned way.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
