As it is a Friday and it is always good to have a laugh on Fridays I thought I would share some mad, wacky and strange ' interest's, that I have come across on CV's this week. These are all definitely classified as "don't put these interests on your CV" :
- Chinese Folk Dancing
- Dog Surfing (???)
- Painting toy soldiers from the Crimea War
- Abnormal psychology of sharks
- Ladybirds (??)
- Medieval Re-enactment Society
- Collecting Tea Pots
- Body Piercings
- Collecting Fighting Boomerangs
I would like to point out that a) these are all from real CV's; b) I have no problem with any of them as interests/hobbies (the vampire one did worry me a little though!), but just don't ever put them on your CV and finally c) don't be surprised if they give people the wrong impression of you!!!!
So all you recruiters, who read many CV's each day - what is the wierdest ones you have come across??
