How video games prepare kids for a bright future job

Kaitlin Albright likes to kill computerized people in video games. She is a native of Caldwell, Kan., a little town on the Oklahoma state line; she is a 19-year-old freshman at Wichita State University. Her grade point average at Caldwell High School was 3.8 on a scale of 4. And her part-time job at WSU, answering phones for WSU’s chief information officer, means that she works for Ravi Pendse, arguably one of the leading authorities on the Internet, world technology, and the future of jobs. Pendse says Kaitlin Albright is an amazing young person — and a model for the future.
