You don't need to show those abilities in both... If I had to pick one, I'd say show it on the job. But, in your community service, hopefully you can show how you made a real impact, rather than merely attending events.
Thanks. I've project managed consulting teams so I'm not so worried about showing leadership abilities on the job.
Community service - I do mentorship, but its tough to show a real impact. In my first case, the kid had run away before I met her...so I ended up counselling the mom instead. I'm waiting for my second case now. I did take part in a 3-day camp where I made an obvious difference in someone's life (trust me even I'm surprised that it can happen in 3 days), but I'm worried that the timeline is a little short.
One question - do schools look for community service in particular, or any extracurricular activity is fine? For the ultimate frisbee side of things - I organised the first profitable league for 250 people in Singapore, I was on the team that organises the annual tournament in Singapore, attracting between 20-30 teams from Asia Pacific and I've captained a team as well.
Given this, my extra curricular is stronger than my pure community service, so just wondering.
Thank you so much for the advice!
