I have a section on the resume that includes the sports teams I've played on and the plays that I've acted in.

What is a good term for this section?

1 Answer 1


"Extracurricular activities" is the usual term. A good term for such a section, however, largely depends on who you are, your profession and who is going to receive your resumé. If it's a job application and your artistic and sportive experience are totally unrelated to the position you're applying for, I suggest "trivia"

  • extracurricular activity - educational activities not falling within the scope of the regular curriculum
  • "trivia" - Insignificant or inessential matters; petty details or considerations, trifles.
