We've talked about putting DDO on college applications, but what about on a resume?

Should I or shouldn't I?

No. Logically, one would think that it shouldn't hurt. But if your putting internet websites on your resume, a potential employer is going to think, "this is what this guy thinks is important or a great accomplishment? How seriously can I take the other accomplishments that he has listed?"

Don't do it.

They'll rationalize it as:

Debate.org --> that's an accomplishment? --> she must spend a lot of time on the computer ---> does she have any drive? ---> oh gawd, she lives in her basement --> *throws away resume*
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

No... seriously why would you?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I wouldn't see a problem with putting online debating down under hobbies/interests on a job application. But on a proper CV? Probably not.

Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

lol no... that would be stupid. I don't even know if I would ever put it on a college application, either. Let's just say that social media = a no no when applying for anything professional as they can see just how unprofessional you can be.
I could give a f about no haters as long as my ishes love me.

You should.

Make sure to include links to your best debate performances and maybe some high-quality posts.

Also post your DDO leader board percentile. Anything over 80% is fine.

Good luck.

True, most places (eg. fast food, amusement park) just ask you to fill out an application. But if you go to job fairs and the like, a resume is good to have on hand. I think in retail you need a resume.

Why would you put a "hobbies/interests" portion on a resume? That clutters it and ruins the professionalism.

I do and I've gotten every job I've ever applied for (which is 5).
Your employer wants to know something about your personality to see if you will fit in with the other workers.

Cover letters are for chumps.
And of course I have. I'm 10 months into my second traineeship right now, so the money is crap, but I love the job.

I just applied for a volunteer position and the online application asked me to list my hobbies/interests, so I left that out of my resume. I've done a lot of volunteer work with kids and that in itself shows my hobbies/interests.

I always put sleight of hand and info tech down as my hobbies.
Nothing like a well-timed card trick to make a memorable interview.

Yeah, info tech is also a good skill to have/know a lot about. I mean, I wouldn't put "Watching TV" in my interests, even if they asked lol

The card trick thing is pretty cool, and I can see how that would set you apart from other applicants.

It's also a good way to subtley show that you're dedicated. Sleight of hand literally equates to hundreds of hours of monotonous practise to perfect something that people don't even know you can do.
