For an actuarial job no one cares about those details. But working as a teacher for the first year after I graduated from college looks better than a gap in employment.

It only takes one line on my resume.
I left my teaching off my actuarial resume entirely at some point. But it was part-time during college, so there's no gap.

When I recently applied for a part-time teaching gig, though, the part-time teaching while I was in school got a couple of lines, and all of my actuarial career became one line per employer, with maybe a comment somewhere that I have managed people and have to communicate with others outside my department. Because that's pretty much all that's relevant about my actuarial work for the teaching I was applying to do.
