Prolonged unemployment can lead to depression and a loss of selfesteem. Gamification is a strategy that engages and motivates groups of people by implementing game mechanics and dynamics in an existing non-gaming system. This paper studies the possibility of using gamification to motivate job seekers. To test the effectiveness of the ideas proposed in this paper, a betweensubjects study was executed. Those results, although preliminary, do suggest the potential of including gamification features in job seeking systems.
