Warlock or druid?
A handful of job seekers are listing achievements in videogames such as the role-playing platform "World of Warcraft" on their résumés or LinkedIn profiles, betting that virtual-world accomplishments will impress hiring managers in real life.
Some players say the game's tasks aren't that different from the duties of the modern office job.
That was the view of Heather Newman, who included her Warcraft experience on the résumé that helped land her current job as director of marketing and communications for the University of Michigan's School of Information.
In the "Leisure/Volunteer Activities" section of her résumé, Ms. Newman noted that she has managed guilds of as many as 500 people and organized large-scale raids of 25 to 40 players to complete tasks for several hours four to five days a week. These tasks, she said, "directly apply to the kind of job I hold."
