Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “‘Squid Game’-Inspired Guards Oversee Civil Servants in Indonesia” – below is their description.
An unusual antidote to recruitment exam nerves was offered to applicants hoping to join a department of the civil service in Indonesia, Friday (22 OCTOBER 2021), as the regional office of the East Java Ministry of Law looked to “Squid Game”-inspired role play, to diffuse tension.
Prospective employees for placements as prison guards and immigration inspectors were approached by “Squid Pink” personnel holding toy long-barreled guns and demanding whether their registration paperwork was complete.
Dressed in pink “Squid Game”-style overalls, with their faces covered, the cast also helped with metal detector checks, and walked between rows of candidates seated to take the selection test.
The role play is part of efforts to relax the high pressure atmosphere, which can affect performance on the test, explained the head of the regional office of the East Java Ministry of Law, Kris Mono.
“By presenting Squid Pink, we intend to entertain the participants who will take the exam so that they are not tense, stay happy during the exam during this pandemic because by being happy they can increase their immunity”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
