I belong to a church that has an unpaid lay clergy. I have read in trade journals that one should mention such experience on a resume if it reveals skills pertinent to the position, such as people skills, conflict resolution, management, etc. But one recruiter personally told me not to put down such volunteer experience because his employer would be concerned that your outside activities/committments could interfere with your paid job being number one. Does anybody have experience with this topic, either as a job candidate or as a recruiter?
