Video games can teach valuable interpersonal skills

A new study reveals that adding video gaming experience to a CV could be beneficial. The skills acquired while playing games are great for job seekers as they can be more difficult to learn directly in the world of work.

According to another research from Dell and the Institute for the Future, 85% of jobs which will exist in 2030 have not been invented yet. This shows the need to constantly adapt to keep pace with society’s technological acceleration.

Each genre of video games foster different skills. For instance, strategy titles can help to build abilities in decision-making and problem-solving while team-based franchises develop communication and organisation. Video games also include the notion of striving for a form of perfection and the ability to learn quickly in a diverse environment.

With the push towards digitalisation and communication, it is possible that gaming could help people to obtain jobs in the future.
