Skills and Interests

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon63, Jan 6, 2011.

  1. If this was on a job application? I list my skills and interests. No point making anything up.

    I am just interested to hear what others class as their skills and interests.
  3. Is this for an application form?

    The only time I was asked this (it was an English application system as opposed to a Scottish one - you don't get asked that on Scottish teaching forms) I mentioned my interest in foreign cinema and 1960s kitchen-sink drama. I got an interview. :)

    No we were talking about it in the staffroom today..but I know you can be asked this in an interview.
  5. I always think it's a funny question to be asked at professional interview, but maybe I've just been brain-washed by the Scottish system.
    I'd actually quite like to be asked this at interview.

    I have no particular skills and I'm not sure that I have any specific interests any more. Does that make me a bad person?
