JobPro is a trilogy of free games that teach players about time management, proper dress, and interview behavior. Game development and testing was done with the assistance of the Learn and Earn Program (Pittsburgh, PA) which helped achieve a greater understanding of the needs of the target age group. The unparalleled experience of these games allows players to make mistakes in the game rather than in real life, possibly disqualifying them for a job.—JobPro
