Gaps in your experience?
Rarely will recruiters or hiring managers take issue with gaps in your experience — as long as you have a reason for those gaps. It’s always best to be upfront and honest about why you weren’t working. Before meeting with recruiters or hiring managers, make sure you take the time to prepare your answer. Even if it’s something as simple as “needing time away to recharge” or “raising my children,” it’s an explanation, and most employers won’t take issue with the gap.
