BERKELEY, Calif. — Calling the findings as much of a surprise to researchers as anyone, a groundbreaking University of California study uncovered a startlingly strong connection between playing the smash hit game Fortnite on the clock and suddenly finding oneself ‘in-between’ careers.
“Our research strongly suggests neglecting one’s official job duties for tagging one-shots with a double pump almost always translates into being in the market for a new job,” said head researcher William Green.
The study’s findings also implied that as players vacated the flying school bus to feverishly scavenge for weapons, build forts, and otherwise prepare themselves for the coming onslaught, they’re developing highly marketable skills they can bring directly to their next employer.
“No doubt these abilities will come in handy when one is fired from that next job, too.”
At publishing time, Green and his team had decided to personally verify the results of their study, attesting to its validity all the way to the nearest unemployment office.
