Yeah pretty much. A recruiter once told me not to put anything on a cv that might put someone off you. If you like skydiving it sounds exciting but you may break a leg and be off sick etc. If you read you may be perceived as boring etc. You never know what stupid hangups employers might have against magicians.
Mind you, I just had an interview where I was asked what book I was reading, what sport I competed in and what my last result was, what radio station I listened to, what tv programmes I watched, etc. etc. I didn't get a second interview. Just as well as they sound like a bunch of weirdos!
didn't put hobbies in but got interests into the supporting information
I'd be in trouble with your questions... what book I was reading, not in polite company what sport I competed in HUH what's sport...... and what my last result was, see above what radio station I listened to, Radio 2 what tv programmes I watched, Dr Who
I have two lines at the bottom of my CV saying that I enjoy travel (sort of relevant but not really) and theatre. I think it gives an interviewer a useful snapshot of who you are. My dad was a very high level executive and always included that he enjoyed travel and golf on his CV.
