Student Lands Manager Job on Strength of Football Manager Resume

It isn't everyday that you hear someone has been successfully hired after placing completed gaming criteria on their resume, but that seems like just the case for 21-year-old Vugar Huseynzade, who according to Eurosport is now the inbound manager of Azerbaijani Premier League club FK Baku's 'A' side after putting down Football Manager as his experience.
Vugar Huseynzade, a 21-year-old student from Sweden, landed the job at one of Azerbaijan's top football clubs - reportedly beating off big names including France legend Jean-Pierre Papin to the post - despite his only experience of managing a team being on his computer.

"I've always wanted to work in football and have played Football Manager since 2002," Huseynzade told Scandinavian newspaper Aftonbladet.
While we wouldn't recommend basing your resume solely on a video game, who knows how far you could get by saying you are the champion of squashing Goombas or how you won a Guinness World Record for playing 135 hours and 50 minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. It might even land you a job like Vugar Huseynzade was lucky enough to get.
