How important is the hobbies section of my CV? 

The hobbies and interests section is by far the most overlooked when it comes to creating a CV, but we are here to tell you to stop what you are doing right now and listen! This section can be very important if filled in correctly, and here’s why…

Your hobbies tell a story 

The hiring manager has never met you but may end up working with you, so they want to know what type of person you are. Do you have an outgoing personality? Do you like to be the centre of attention?

Rather than keeping the employer in the dark, the hobbies and interests section is the place where you can shine and provide an insight into your personality. So rather than just putting the standard ‘I like to socialise on weekends’, you can get much more creative.

Put down voluntary work 

If you’ve volunteered in the past or even still currently volunteer, then this would be a fantastic place to start. Working for a charity in your spare time shows the employer that you are willing to go the extra mile for no monetary reward, so overtime clearly won’t be a problem for you.

Other charitable examples are working for your local country park. It could be cutting grass or helping maintain forestry and paths etc. Or maybe you’ve even taken part in helping to organise the local fate. Any of the above need to be included as hobbies and will look great on your CV.

Put down achievements 

This section would be great for achievements that aren’t already listed on your CV, and it doesn’t matter if they are not related to the role. A good example could be achieving grades in music. It could be that you got to grade 5 in piano a few years back, or might even still be studying the grades. Musical talent shows creativity and flair, and is an absolute must when it comes to showcasing your hobbies and interests.

You might currently play in a band, so why not put down the link to your website or social media page. Once an employer starts to flick through your videos and pictures you’ve already got them interested and you’ll certainly be remembered. You might even find that they like the same music as you which would be a bonus!

And it doesn’t have to just be music, as any website that you’ve either created yourself or are affiliated with in some way should be linked to on your CV. No matter what your are passionate about outside of work, you need to portray that passion on your CV. Employers love passionate and interesting people, as they know how well they may fit in the company – especially if the role is an outgoing creative role. Sales, call centre, management, marketing etc. No matter what the role you are applying for, your personality is the key to success.
