The career site Zippia willingly took on every boss's nightmare and looked through a bunch of resumes for fun: 3,543,017 resumes to be exact. A computer must have been involved. The purpose of this thorough analysis was to determine the most popular keywords people listed on their resumes in the "Additional Interests" section. Zippia divided their research up by state, so you can see how well you fit into your environment/what interests you need to immediately start hating in order to stand out.
