If you have ever applied for a job anywhere then you know that many times you must fill out information packets about yourself and your various interests in many fields on the job application forms or your resumes, etc. Now it seems that in many cases people are also including their video game playing habits on their job applications and believe it or not but it may help their chances in finding work somewhere:

Would you think about including your video game playing habits on a job application, etc., or not?

Maybe, maybe not. If video games somehow develop a relevant skill, sure. Like, in my current position, I really do think a lot of the spatial recognition and eye coordination gaming has developed helped me a lot with a recent project I was working on.

It depends on what you put on there I guess. Putting that you have a level 59 Druid probably would not impress someone on your resume, but if you organized and successfully ran a 100 person Guild, or something of that nature, then I would say that shows good organizational skills and a good level of responsibility.

It might not be exactly what an employer is looking for, but something like running a Guild does take some dedication, if done properly.
