OT: Semi-OT: Conlanging in application forms?

For the 1,000,001st time, what would you call "conlanging" in
application forms? I'm just applying for a job experience at Bertelsmann
Group or Hänssler Verlag. Just "invention of languages" seems to much
dilettant, but "onomatopoeia" (sp?) OTOH is too posh IMO. I'm giving
conlanging because I've also written that my favourite subjects in
school are English, Musical Education and Computer Science. I also said
that I'm interested in languages. Since I'm also playing the classical
guitar. All in all, conlaning might thus be quoteworthy, too, although
it's not an acknoledged art, it's nevertheless showing (at least a
certain bit) of creativity IMO. I hope also in the eyes of the guy at
the staff department.

Thanks in advance,
