A small paragraph or few sentences is perfect in my experience.

Absolutely! But not if it extends your resume to another page or gives your resume a clutter look. The benefits of listing your hobbies are that it shows that you have depth and gives the interviewer a chance to learn more about you.

Syed how many pages do you think a CV should be? Ideally? I just re-did mine is all and wondered if I was about right.

Try to keep it to two.

Let's face it most people's attention span is based on 200 word stories in The SUN.

The Sun. One of the things that makes me ashamed to be British.

I think it should be 2 pages, but if you have multiple job experiences then cv length can be extended up-to 3 pages. ..its the dead end.  Cv examples
