According to the Valve employee handbook “Hiring well is one of the
most important things in the universe, nothing else comes close.”
Assertions like that are what motivated this study to exist. There has
been little research on the best methods of selection for candidates
seeking work within the industry; this study will attempt to gather data
on what data firms are collecting from potential candidates. Researchers
at Full Sail University are asking that any professional that has taken
part in the hiring process at development studios, publishers and indie
game companies take the time to fill out a short survey that will gather
data on their experiences in the hiring process. This data could help
develop employee selection practices tailored for Video Game Industry

I took your survey. I just wanted to note that one of the questions
surprised me a little bit: you asked whether candidates’ marital status
is taken into account in the hiring process. In many US states/cities
that’s actually illegal, I believe - marital status is often a protected
class along with race, sex, religion, etc.
You are correct. But because it is not fully protected in all areas I
decided to keep the question. Thank you very much for participating.
