So you have prepress related hobbies? Spending the weekend watching files rip?


Sometimes I like to spend a Saturday afternoon designing a brochure in Publisher, just for fun.

I also like designing web pages straight out of quark. Helps keep me current with industry technologies and broadens my skill set.

Well yes, why would anyone use anything other than Quark for web design? :ohno:

Still updating my resume...

In looking online on what not to include in a resume I saw these items listed:
Unrelated Hobbies
Salary History

I typically include both of those. I don't see a problem listing my salaries for each job because I think it's a good indicator of one's skill level and can help a potential employer determine if I'm what they're looking for. Am I wrong? I also include unrelated hobbies, with a touch of humor thrown in. Every interview I go to, it's noticed and mentioned, and usually helps to break the ice and start a conversation.


I don't like listing salary history and don't unless they push it and if they push it I at least think they are serious about hiring me.

And unrelated hobbies? :wtf: So you have prepress related hobbies? Spending the weekend watching files rip?


I don't like listing salary history on a resume either. I'd like to leave that open for discussion during an interview. If they think you're too expensive at first glance, you won't even get an interview. If you were gypped at previous jobs (like that never happens), they may think (know) you work cheap and offer you less than they would have just seeing your qualifications.

Good points, and I had already taken them off my resume before Possum posted that.

I did include beer in my list of hobbies, listed as "sampling craft homebrews" or something like that.  :laugh:
