Employers hate WoW players

Posted on Saturday, December 20 2008 @ 12:30:24 CET by

Alley Insider suggests it's not a good idea to mention you're a World of Warcraft player in a job application letter or during an interview. The site noticed a message on a gaming forum which states some employers specifically instruct recruiters to not send them WoW players. There's a belief that WoW players are bad employees, because their focus is always elsewhere.
I met with a recruiter recently (online media industry) and in conversation I happened to mention I'd spent way too much time in the early 2000s playing online games...

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. I mentioned that some people have written about MMOG leadership experience as a career positive or a way to learn project management skills, and he shook his head. He has been specifically asked to avoid WoW players.
