Activities Section

Postby cjmiller122 » Wed Oct 19, 2011 9:43 pm

How is everybody handling the question that asks "List your extracurricular, community, or other activities in the order of their importance to you. Give a brief description of your involvement, including any special responsibilities or leadership positions held."

How long for each? Including pure hobbies like playing tennis or just formal extracurriculars? Copy and pasting from the resume or different wording?

Any help is much appreciated

Copy and paste from your resume. Its pretty straight forward.

I would stick to formal things like organizations and teams, but I would also include volunteering. Don't include things like casually playing tennis; that goes on the interests/hobbies line on your resume.

How much detail, do you think?
