Is it necessary to mention ‘hobby’ in CV or resume?While writing a resume or curriculum vitae, and attending an interview, the candidates need to express his/her hobbies there. I am little bit confused why hobbies are necessary for a candidate to inform the interviewer or the HR. What could be the benefit to the interviewer by knowing the candidate's hobby and what are negative or positive sides for the candidate to express this?
What I think is hobbies should not be there in a CV, as these are truly confidential of a person and there is no importance to inform others. What you think, is it necessary to describe hobbies in a CV or resume?
