Job application

Bruce Mau Design is working on the project Massive Change and is searching for a superior thinker, stategist or designer and asks them to answer three challenging questions.

1. In the future, how will we communicate?
2. Will we shift from the service of war to the service of life?
3. How will we eradicate poverty?

I think for a company or organization a candidate answers to (these) questions are much more valuable than exchanging resumés. Could this be the new de facto for job applications? Art schools already ask you to do certain tasks or answer questions when applying.
