Put a Positive Spin on Employment Gaps

Be prepared to explain a gap in your employment. Be calm and honest —there are many acceptable reasons why someone was unemployed for a period of time.

Even if you weren’t voluntarily out of work, consider all positive activities that display valuable personal growth and achievement.

  • Volunteering
  • Extended learning
  • Parenting
  • Freelancing

Keep your response brief and positive, simple and sincere.
