Most standard resumes do not feature hobbies and interests. A number of resume writing experts recommend leaving extracurricular activities off of your resume once you have enough professional experience to fill every section. If you feel that mentioning an extracurricular activity will give employers a clearer sense of your commitment to developing skills outside of work, you may list hobbies and interests near the bottom of your resume.
In general, you should avoid bringing up extracurricular activities in your summary statement or skills section. The only exceptions to this guideline are if an activity relates directly to the skills an employer is looking for in an applicant or if you are a new jobseeker.
