Under Hobbies And Interests

This could be a good idea for those competitive,
And considering as a device to separate themselves...
From those also seeking employment,
A doing of something that is guaranteed...
To get one attention and an interview for a job.

One should list under 'Hobbies and Interests'.
Of having to take isolation days,
For the purpose to relax and clear one's head.
That's right.
Isolation Days
Try it.

In nothing else...
This will prove to anyone reviewing a resume,
That the one applying for a position is loyal and dedicated.
And is flexible and can multi-task under pressure.
Without the use of a weapon sought to ease frustration.
Or frightening fellow employees with a demostration,
By coming into work one day looking totally crazed,
And armed.

Under 'Hobbies and Interests',
List those isolation days you have experienced and taken.
Let them know who you are from the beginning,
To avoid them selecting someone who can dress to impress...
But suppresses a killer instinct.
Let them know you come in peace,
And can be expected to leave that way...
No matter who has been discovered to be incompetent.
