Minding the (Resume) Gap

By Nurys Harrigan
The Career Connector


November 2015

Life comes at you fast, and the subsequent messiness can spill over into your career whether you like it or not. You might find yourself in a situation where you can’t work for a few months or you might struggle to find a new, dream job after leaving your current one. Life will inherently get in the way and impact your resume, leaving gaps you may not want and, consequently, curious hiring managers inquiring as to why you periodically haven’t worked.


Q: What is the best way to address gaps in your resume? – Katherine K., Washington, DC


A: As is the case with all things regarding resumes and job seeking in general, my first point of advice is to avoid lying about why you have gaps in your work history. Even if it’s just a white lie, the consequences are far greater than a nervous slip of the tongue and should be avoided at all costs. Honesty is the best policy!
