June 4, 2010, Newsletter Issue #152: Hobbies and Interests in a Resume

Tip of the Week

Typically, you should avoid mentioning hobbies and interests when resume writing. These hobbies and interests often don't bear much relevance to the position you're applying for, so save your valuable resume space for describing your key experience and skills.

However, you may want to include your hobbies and interests if there is a strong correlation to the available position. Your love of camping would be appropriate to mention if you are trying to become a park ranger.
