You know, a lot of people are saying "having hobbies tells employers you are a good employee," but I'd like to hear what more employers think, rather than what we *think* they think. I mean, we could prattle on about this for weeks (and you *know* we could, don't you), but most of us are on the employee side of the equation, and are only speculating about what potential employers want.

For example:
<< I say that I'm into the theatre (creative), I'm a director (leadership) and I'm an actor (responsibility, teamwork). >>

Am I the only one who *doesn't* immediately think "ooh, he's responsible and a good team player!!" when I hear that someone is an actor? ;-)
