Only if you have room. If you need to sacrifice it for a good bullet under one of your jobs, do it


Depends on the hobbies and if there’s another place to fit them in… some hobbies are worth including and some are… very niche / weird and get more eye rolls than second looks

I say yes, because personally every interview that has gone well involved at least some discussion around it

Yes but be genuine and actually know how to talk about it. Don’t put chess if you don’t truly love it and love talking about it

Yes, definitely do! I raised seahorses with my dad when I was younger and I put it down as an interest and everyone asked me about it. Yeah it’s weird but it’s something to break the ice

Was a bitch? My coworker routinely asks me how I am doing, what I’m working on, if everything is ok, joking that I’m starting my week on Wednesday because I’ve been remote for two days, etc etc. I find it distracting and invasive so today I told them to please stop asking questions that put me on the spot. Was I a bitch?
