You don't have to put in on your resume. However, if you have a hobby which could make you look more suitable for the job, it could be wise to put in on. For instance, if you apply for a job working as a journalist, and you used to write for a local paper or something.

But like Sicy said, I wouldn't put things like "I collect G.I. Joe's" on it.

CV is a fancy name for a resume

Therefore, I did not think you were serious.

fair enough, but i dont think the two are not the same. i pretty much had to guess my way around it when i made mine last week and i have no idea if its any good or not. one of the people i submitted to said it looked good, without me even having to ask.

actually, doesnt cv stand for curriculum vitae or something like that?

whatever, i made mine, and im not ever going to make another one again.

A CV is a little different in that it's a little more formal than a resume, and usually longer. It's more for academic and research jobs than for businesses and includes published works, awards, and activities. It's almost like a biography rather than strictly a work history.

We only write CVs over here. I also thought it was the same as a resume.

yeah it has a basis in academic journals. that is where they were first used. for some reason everyone now requests a 'c.v.' i think they have now become one and the other.

In non-US countries (with the possible exception of Canada), resume and CV are synonymous.

All of the resume's/cv's we work with are made by foreigners.

Kobayashi,

A personal interests section makes more sense when you do not have a large Work Experience section - I typically see them from applicants who are fresh out of school and have never held a job. Not having a personal interests section will certainly not be held against you.

You may include one, however, if there are certain skills or experiences you want to get in front of an employer.

Good luck!

Yeah, and it's usually too late by the time your boss walks by the day you decide to bring a mini poster of them to hang up on your wall.
