Hi Sotos, not my area of expertise but from my experience it came up quite often in interviews! I think hiring managers like to know a bit about your outside interests and it shows a well-rounded person. Best of luck!

Hi Sotos - To be honest, this differs in terms of recruiters but when I reviewed Graduate applications I found it interesting when a candidate mentioned he has a Science degree, then opted to do a law degree and is also a stand up comedian who opened for a famous Comedian in South Africa. It stood out quite a bit. I would say rather you insert it than leave it out.

Thank you very much! No I would never leave it out. I have been a national tennis champion for years. Tennis has been my life after all! :)

I agree with Claire when it comes to the interviews, especially the Assessment Center, there is a big focus on that. The reason being if you reach that point, you must be good so what in terms of personality will make someone want to work with you.
