Online gamers in the market for a new job may want to skip any mention of “guild master” on their resume.
A member on F13, a forum for game-related news, recounted a recent job interview where his hobby of playing online games such as World of Warcraft came up in conversation, with disastrous results: “I happened to mention I’d spent way too much time in the early 2000s playing online game…He replied that employers specifically instruct him not to send them World of Warcraft players. He said there is a belief that WoW players cannot give 100% because their focus is elsewhere, their sleeping patterns are often not great, etc.”
