Not sure it's a good idea. The GPA probably means something to the employer and is verifiable (although in my opinion pretty meaningless in reality). Your Woot rating can change, so if they check it, they will think you lied on your resume. If they are familiar with Woot, they might also think you are a goof-off wasting too much time on the internet. We Wooters, of course, know how valuable Woot time is, but not everyone is enlightened.

I'd say go for it.

It shows you're committed and have attention to detail. Plus, when reviewing 100+ resumes, I doubt that anyone in the human resources department of any good company will take the time to go onto deals.woot to check it out. It'll just look good :)

I think it would show your commitment to getting the most value for your dollar, in your personal but also professional life. Your enthusiasm to be a team player and also a leader as needed. Your attention to detail, willingness to help others, ability to interact with clients and vendors in all levels, and more...

Just be sure to convert it to a 4.0 scale as well.

I just wish I'd thought of this first. Props.

I think it is nuts if you are serious. You are joking, right?

If you're looking for a job as a social media manager or social marketing engagement, then I'd absolutely put it up there along with any FB pages you own and the number of members. In today's age it's more about reputation than trivial accomplishment.

Anything to do with online sale or as cheesefood75 says, social media then maybe. Otherwise you're basically telling them you spend a lot of your time on the internet, something most employers do not look for in an employee.

@rabid7 and @klozitshoper

Thanks all for the great answers...yes, I may be nutz (a relative diagnosis that my therapist seems to reiterate...lol) but this was all in fun and I got some really great comments.
I love it!

Unless you're still in school, get your GPA off your resume.

Good idea if you are applying for a job with Woot. Otherwise - not so much.

A good resume lists things that are of interest to a potential employer and leaves out anything that could be a potential deal breaker. List training and experience that is relevant to the job, but not things that might be viewed as potential time wasters or problems. "I run a website in my spare time" might be good if the job you want involves managing a network, but as a "potential on-job time waster" otherwise. You might think your hobby of mountain climbing/bungee jumping on weekends looks good; a company might see it as a health insurance liability.

Never have "a resume" that you send everyone. Take a few minutes and tailor it to the company you are sending it to.

Adadavis is right, but tailor it to the job. If possible, work with a recruiter or call for someone in HR who can discuss the job (unless it specifically says no phone calls). Try to answer each point not with how you can match it, but how you show leadership and management.

Another question: what did you do with those woots? Did you re-sell them at a profit? In that case, I would list your entrepreneurial experience in generating part-time income but make sure they know you'd be doing it from home.

OMG! Thanks for posting this. I'm totally cracking up at these answers!

I think under the resume section, "Excellent references furnished upon request" I will list Mortimer and Monte. I am sure they can attest to my upper percentile Awesomeness.
