I've been trying to incorporate Hearthstone in my resume for job applications and I was wondering how it could be done. So far I have included it in my accomplishments section (ex. achieved legend 3 seasons in a row, won certain major group tournaments) and my skills section where I mentioned how it has built my analytical thinking, team coordination, and leadership skills. The reason I want to use this is Hearthstone has been a major part of my work experience over the last year so I want to take advantage of it as I don't have much else to write about.
It's also important to be prepared to talk about everything you have in your resume, as you'll likely be asked about it in your interviews. Hearthstone can definitely be used in many of the common behavioral interview questions such as:
1) Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.
2) Have you handled a difficult situation? How?
3) Have you ever made a mistake? How did you handle it?
4) Tell me about a time when you had to take initiative.
You can use examples where you were on the wrong end of a thumping for most of the match and then was able to think your way out of a bad situation, wipe the board, and engineer a comeback. Employers are looking to see that you don't just give up in the face of adversity but you are a go-getter and are willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals.
So what do you think, any ideas?
Now You understand why it amused me? Enjoy your weekend everyone!
