February 10, 2006, Newsletter Issue #22: Hobbies on Entry Level Resumes

Tip of the Week

Experienced professionals are advised to avoid listing hobbies and activities on their resumes, but it is more acceptable to do this when writing entry level resumes.

Employers donít have much job experience to refer to on an entry level resume, so a discussion of your hobbies and activities may give the employer a better sense of who you are.

This is particularly true of team sports, writing hobbies, volunteer opportunities and situations where you may have shown leadership abilities. You should also denote any awards, scholarships or honors you may have won.
