• Be honest in your answer but choose your admissions wisely. Your love of Comic Con may impress younger employers at a computer company more than senior banking officials, for example.
• Focus on just a few of your interests. Share a bit of your passion for two or three areas of interest rather than rolling out a boring list of items.
• If your hobbies or community efforts have resulted in leadership positions or awards, mention them.
• Interests or hobbies that create a connection with the company are good to share.
Be careful not to make up any answers or exaggerate your interests. Avoid mentioning activities that won't reflect on your positively. If you don't have hobbies, focus on volunteer work, DIY maintenance around your home, and similar after-work tasks. Don't talk about things you don't like to do, but generally keep the conversation positive.
Finally, even though this is an informal question, don't forget to keep your answer professional. If you need more tips about preparing for a job interview, check out this website.
