Gaming Skills to List on Resume
We are working on a resume for my 17 year old son to begin applying for summer jobs. He has only one previous work experience - last summer as a lifeguard. Naturally we'll be listing that, his academic record, and his sports.
For applications at gaming and electronic stores, I think it would be good to include his hobby of gaming. Son is an X-box gamer with many, many hours per week. Here's where I would love your suggestions:
- What do you CALL this? Gaming? Social Gaming?
- I don't think we should literaly list titles of games, but maybe a sweeping statement about types of games. What he plays mostly are all the various sports, race, and the shoot-em-up stuff. What are the generic names for that last category?
- What would be good skills to list?
Any CONSTRUCTIVE ideas appreciated! (But some mocking will naturally be tolerated!)
- Good hand-eye coordination
- Ability to make quick decisions under pressure
- Good deductive reasoning and critical thinking skills
