Gamers now putting video game achievements on job resumes

There's plenty of competition for high tech jobs, so applicants are looking for ways to stand out. The latest trend has some fans of the video game "World of Warcraft" putting their virtual accomplishments on their real-world resumes. Jamie Barrientos, who is a huge fan of the game, says to make it to the highest levels players have to accomplish daily tasks that are not all that different from an office job. He says,"I can see why people would wanna put this on their resume. If you wanna be at the top, you're gonna organize the raids, you're gonna develop people skills." Tens of millions of people play online games, meaning job seekers may have something in common with the person doing the hiring.
