A new study from GolfSupport(link is external) found that mentioning that you play a sport on your CV increases your employability by 39% and that 68% of successful candidates at the 200 companies surveyed said they played a sport. 12% of recent hires mentioned that they were cyclists, making it the fourth most successful sport for increasing employability. Applicants who take part in athletics were the most successful, with 20% of recent hires including it on their CV. Tennis and rugby were second and third with 16% and 14% before cycling came next in fourth, ahead of football and boxing.

If you mention in an application that it's your actual form of day to day transport they have a different view.

If you mention you're a Daily Mail enthusiast and comment on "Human Ken Doll" Articles then your chances of employment are around the same as winning the Euro millions...
