      A new study by researchers at Missouri University of Science and Tecnology found that World of Warcraft (WoW) gamers who were successful working as a team in “raids” had qualities that psychological studies have shown to translate to success on virtual workplace teams.

      These qualities include what psychologists call the Big Five personality traits – extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism, as well as computer-mediated communication skills and technology readiness.

      I should be a high valued employee if that's case, cause of how much WoW I've played over the years. :P

      Working volunteer (as an officer) was something I put on resumes and helped me get one of my first jobs post-college (community management) which led me on the path to working in the video game industry (Ubisoft).

      Anything that you dedicate enough time to can be used as experience if you really make a case for why it is relevant
