Things to Leave Off the Resume - Your Guild

World of Warcraft Players Need Not Apply - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com
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.”

Tough one. I guess we all could benefit from this experience. Anyone interested in building their free online resumes with some reference? I just saw a student resume network which made it easy for me to get started. A lot of opportunities are in store for its members including getting to post jobs wanted ads and get seen by potential employers. Visit nuresume.com and see for yourself.
