A lot of us take time off from work, for numerous reasons. Sometimes, it’s a preference; possibly you were involved with your kids, traveling, or decided to go back to school. In other cases, it may have occurred because you were laid off or dismissed and it took time to seek a new job. Recruiters commonly accept your resume as the document to take into consideration to form their initial thoughts about you. Explaining the employment gap in your resume carefully is necessary to make sure those gaps don’t affect the impression that is set about you.
