The chance to run your own virtual phone shop is one of two business simulations available free from TalentCubed. It is one aspect that makes the site unique. There are many graduate jobs boards and networking platforms out there but Talentcubed has some pretty neat ideas. Gaining real world experience can be difficult and an online simulation is never going to match that but it will deepen your understanding of the issues. Combine that with the chance to interact with real people working in industry and to apply for actual jobs, talentcubed suddenly becomes more interesting.
So if you are bored over Christmas, then why not try running your own virtual phone shop from the comfort of your own home?
