Okay... As an employer, I think the Hobbies section is important. I read it
to see what this person is really interested in besides making money.

At one point, I had to hire a writer to join my staff at Toon Boom. I was
interviewing a potential candidate who mentionned to me that one of her
hobbies was watching anime and manga cartoons. I knew then and there that
this candidate would be a good fit 'cause she like the business that Toon
Boom was involved in. I hired her and never regretted it.
