For the past 6 months I've had a side consulting business in an industry that I'm interested in long-term. It's in a different industry than the one my regular day job is in, but they use a similar technical skill set. My side consulting was about 8-12 hours per week (mostly weekends) so as to not interfere with my responsibilities to my primary employer. However, I'm interested in looking for full-time (or more consulting) opportunities in that other industry and having my experience as a consultant is highly relevant to the positions I'm looking at.
What sort of guidelines are there about putting such side consulting on my resume? On one hand it showcases my experience in that field, but on the other it might raise red flags with prospective employers if they believe that signals that I might not be fully 100% committed to their own company should I be hired there. In reality it's quite easy for me to alleviate this concern in a discussion (my side hustle is to build experience in a field I'm interested in entering more so than generating additional income), but that sort of nuance is not easy to put into a resume and job application sites don't always let you add a cover letter.
