Hobbies, Interests and Career Links
Assessing and understanding our hobbies and interests can be highly beneficial in our career exploration, planning and development phase.
Your hobbies and interests can provide valuable insights into your personality, likes, dislikes, Key Transferable Skills, strengths and development areas. This information then can be applied in a multitude of ways, for example, in your -pre-employment documentation (Resumes, Cover Letters and Selection Criteria), in academic submissions for vocational and tertiary admissions, in Career, Learning and Development Plans, as well as assisting us in determining whether or not your criteria and that of a potential employer is in alignment thereby minimising poor occupational and employment choices whilst simultaneously maximising satisfaction.
For a potential employer or recruitment consultant, the inclusion or assessment of hobbies and interests can provide a volume of information about a candidate or members of their workforce. Through the analysis of hobbies and interests, it is possible to ascertain personality characteristics, including risk-taking behaviours vs aversion, introversion vs extroversion, and autonomy vs teamwork.
