I'm getting ready to write my resume to start applying for my first programming job and I've got a question.
My fiancee who has had great success with her resumes in the past, although only for admin assistant type jobs, swears that I need a small section/paragraph at the end to be used as a "get-to-know-you".
She says that it helps give an employer a better idea of your personality, and all of her resumes have an "Interests" section at the end that will list things like Architecture, travel, water skiing, Harry Potter, Indian curry and others.
But all of the sites that talk about resumes don't mention something like this at all, and when I tell her that maybe I shouldn't have it she thinks I'm making a big mistake.
Anyways, for the professionals out there, what do you think? Should I have such a section? If you were hiring somebody would you want it on there?
