Let's be under no illusion. In this dog-eat-dog world, you can no longer stand out from the pack by saying you go snowboarding, travelled China, or headed up your local debating society.
And honesty doesn't pay, either: who cares if your hobbies are surfing the internet from the throne, watching 'The Bill' and wandering around malls?
So, one needs to be a little creative. I managed to come up with the wonderful "I delivered my sister's baby when the car broke down in the peak district" as an impressive catch-all answer to those generic and useless behavioural-type questions; now what I need is a collection of mind-blowingly impressive hobbies that demonstrate all the skills a recruiter could be looking for and which, which a little research, I can easily blag my way through and won't be caught out with at a later date.
Any ideas please?
