I'm on the fence when it comes to hobbies on a resume. I read an article in InterCom awhile back that said it's a good idea to think twice about it. You don't want to say you're an avid feral hog hunter on your resume, only to have your resume screened or be interviewed by someone from PETA.

I think it depends on what your hobbies are. "Music, reading, outdoor activities" are one thing, but "playing in a band that tours on the weekends, extreme skydiving, and attending Greenpeace rallies" probably wouldn't play in your favor as it causes one to wonder where your true interests lie (OK, most of do what we love after 5pm and on the weekends...)
