The really good ones can complete this exercise in less than sixty seconds.
I do have interests ( science, math,chess,...) but they are unlikely to get me employment without degrees I no longer would go back to school for. bakery training in employability skills is not an interest I have and the best they've done so far is a person who used to be in the navy talking conversions that and seeing how much I can push without getting crippled.
