Are you looking for a career change? The employer wants to know that they’re investing in someone who will be an asset to the company in the future and will not necessarily choose the candidate with the perfect past.
Make sure that you show the skills you’ve learned in your previous roles and how they can be used in your new job. If you're applying for your first job then maybe you have a hobby or interest that could show the employer how perfect you are for the role?
Show how your hobbies give you transferable skills. Coaching a team, writing stories or being active in a club will give you skills that an employer might be looking for.
Dancing, Music, Partying or spending time with friends. This doesn't really tell the employer why you would be a good fit and gives very little weight to your CV.
