Many people wonder if they should include a list of interests or hobbies on their resume. The answer is that it depends. You can either incorporate the skills and experiences gained through these pursuits into other sections, such as Organizations or if your hobbies are highly relevant to the position, you can give them their own section. There can be great value in showing your diverse interests to a potential employer.
When applying for a job, consider the employer’s standpoint. He or she wants to know “Why should we hire you?” A resume goes a long way towards answering this question, but it isn’t the only step. First, you have to encourage a recruiter to actually review your resume. This is the purpose of a cover letter. Assume that the potential employer will read your cover letter first and your resume second. The letter is an introduction to who you are and why you are the best fit for the position. Therefore, your letter offers a preview of your resume by providing a few of its highlights.
Choose a basic font and a font size that’s readable. (In other words, this is not the time to use fancy calligraphy fonts or to experiment with a lot of different font sizes). Make sure that your formatting is consistent throughout your resume, cover letter, and other application materials.
