Author: Do consider if you could highlight leadership/mentorship skills if you assistant teach with your school.
Subject: I would always use a professional example for selection criteria, or a school example if you don't have enough professional experience. Never a hobby/sport example. Irish dancing is for a final line in your CV, the "wow, she does all that too!" after a convincing professional case for winning the job. Under heading "interests". Keep it short, note your highest competitive achievement in layman's language (e.g. "Irish Dancer for 10 years - Top 20 national ranking") Don't overplay dance at risk of appearing that you would prioritise dance over your career.

  • I did! In my earlier job applications before I had a lot of professional experience I would use my experience in dance for exactly the types of questions you mentioned! Depending on the job, some selection panels will like it - I know our graduate recruitment team used to look for example from outside the workplace to find well rounded applicants (NT) -- If it is more relevant and a stronger example than your professional background then use it!, Mon, Mar 26 2018, 22:28:36"
