Outside interests enable a potential employer to gain an understanding to what motivates you, what personal skills you may have and how you will integrate into a team.
Look at how job advertisements stipulate certain personality traits required for positions. Identify what they are and show how your hobbies can relate to their requirements. Try to avoid using just the obvious ones such as “Socialising with friends”, “Reading”, “Listening to Music” and “Going to the Cinema”.
