Transcript of What's Your Knack?

  • First in a series (maybe) of formerly topsecret ideas that could make your life waaaay better.
  • What were you born to do?
  • Stick it to The Man?
  • Find shipwrecks?
  • Save the planet?
  • Sadly, many people go through life without discovering their true talents. Just as sad, some cannot find ways to support themselves with the talents they want to use.
  • Their strengths are simply locked away, unused.
  • What a waste of human potential!
  • This company is using games to change all this
  • At least that is the concept. Knack is still in beta mode.
  • Knack says their games can unearth strengths like these
  • and also like these.
  • If this is true, being the good-looking muscular guy in the Hiring Jungle may become less essential.
  • You may no longer need to interview your way past this guy.
  • You will still need to prove you are a hardworking and positive human being
  • But it will be easier to be discovered for your innate abilities, otherwise known as
  • your knacks for doing certain things very, very well.
  • Pay attention to Knack, and other companies that want to change the way that people discover what they were really meant to do
  • Because bored beyond belief is no way to go through life.
  • This public service announcement has been brought to you by Bruce Kasanoff, who helps companies develop great new ideas, and then spread them. Find Knack here. All images from Shutterstock
