How (and when) to explain a pandemic-related gap on your résumé | Fast Company

Must Read

Contrary to common assumptions, taking time off from work is neither rare nor harmful. Whether you’ve taken months touring the world, looking for a loved one, or simply seeking employment for longer than you thought, many of us will experience “unemployment” at some point in our lives. However, the gaps in your work that arise can pose issues when it comes time to update your CV in preparation for job hunting. When it comes to preparing a résumé, employment gaps are unlikely to be a problem; it’s how they’re addressed that causes trouble. You’ll leave interviewers with more questions than answers if you try to disguise a résumé gap or don’t provide enough information. However, if you confront your résumé gaps full on and use them to demonstrate a plethora of essential talents and knowledge, you’ll have a far greater chance of landing the interviews you deserve.
