Hobbies and interests

On the weekends I play basketball with my friends. This sport not only keeps me fit and healthy but it also develops my team working skills. At home, I am also the go-to person for all computer related problems; from fixing the printer and internet to resolving problems using Microsoft Office. I also enjoy playing video games in my spare time, and I am fascinated by the fact that behind all the visuals and UI there are thousands of lines of code which is the real architecture of the game.

  • Jargon: Working as a programmer means that you are probably used to using jargon on a daily basis. It is important to remember not to overdo the use of jargon on your CV because not every prospective employer or HR professional may be familiar with those technical terms. Instead, it is recommended to restrict technical terms to the well-known examples and keep the jargon to a minimum for maximum readability and impact.

Good Luck!
