It would be interesting to see this site show up on a resume. Not that I would do it, but were I to I'd probably include the percentile; the percentile is very misleading (begins at 67.14%), but is almost guaranteed to look great.

Degrees of unemployment? I'm a student but don't hold a job on the side. Currently freaking out about working at McDonalds with a B.A in economics come Jan 1. 2015.

I haven't had a debate yet.

(Those wins in your profile, though... o_O)

No time like the present to start. As for winning, simply not forfeiting tends to yield a high win rate (I'd guess into the 95th percentile... did I mention how misleading those are?), beyond that the basics laid out in my signature link. You are of course welcome to PM me any questions, or ask advise on how to counter your opponents.

I have heard those best debaters say which ever side they are on, that side is correct. So the point of debating is practicing debating skills and to beat your opponents instead of working towards a conclusion or persuading others when you think your view is correct? It seems like lawyers in a court to me.

There's a good amount of truth to that, save for how lawyers are supposed to share evidence (there have been some really messed up cases where the defense was denied access to evidence which clearly proved the innocence of their client). I would however say that if you can persuade people, you will be doing a very good job representing your side (even if you are playing devils advocate, not believing it yourself).

To the original question, expect to get asked about anything you place on your resume. You could talk about DDO as a series of problem solving challenges, or many other ways, but if they glance at your DDO profile, it should match whatever you said.

Degrees of unemployment? I'm a student but don't hold a job on the side. Currently freaking out about working at McDonalds with a B.A in economics come Jan 1. 2015.

It was a joke because putting DDO on your resume would be absolutely retarded. You have a career services at your university, correct? I'd suggest you use it to build your resume.

If you don't have any extracurricular activities or job experience, then I'd suggest you start now. Also another good idea is to put projects you've done in class on your resume.

In the 3 years that I've been in college (graduating this semester and finishing early), I can only add three notable things to my resume

1. Received (will have) a Bachelors degree
1. Worked with Grassroots Campaigns, Inc
2. Worked at a fine-dining restaurant as busser/server/host

Lol for the late response.... I feel pretty fvcked, though. I'm applying to any jobs that my credentials can support (usually focusing on jobs related to my major), including entry federal careers.

As the end of my final semester draws near, I'm preparing a second option for law school. SO far my liberal arts degree feels wasteful -___-

But, then again, I'm responsible for my own shortcomings.

Those are actually pretty good and usable.
