Resume/CV Tips – Part 3 – Extracurricular Activities

By | July 22, 2012

Since you are a fresher, most recruiters will look at your academic achievements and knowledge to hire you. But they will also look at your extra-curricular activities.

So make sure you have a sub-title called Extracurricular Activities at the end of your CV. You should mention anything that you have done in addition to your school work. Have you participated in NSS? Then list that here. Have been in Scouts, NCC, or done any other thing similar. Were you on the debate team? Are you a good sportsperson. Even if you have not participated in school matches, if you are good athlete do mention it here. You could say for example “Good swimmer.”

Or if you have any hobbies, please list them here. Examples are reading mystery novels, stamp-collecting.

Even if you were elected as a student representative at some point, that needs to be listed here.
