May 7th 2011 10:28AM As a person on the HR side of the desk, I can say that I would probably give someone who listed WoW GM/Raid Leader experience a few bumps up the candidate list. All we have are angry customers and if you're used to herding angry nerds, you'll bring in useful skills.
I might leave WoW Guildmaster experience off if I was applying for a front-line custserv job (as it wouldn't be very relevant), but would definitely list it if I was applying for any sort of management job. It's no different than people who list other volunteer activities on their resume (Boys' and Girls' Club, Boy Scout Leadership, etc.).
Besides, I don't want to work with people who wouldn't hire me because I play videogames. That's just childish and irresponsible on their part.
