Mind the Gap: Dealing with Breaks in Employment

Mind the Gap: Dealing with Breaks in Employment | Reach Your Destination

Written by Stephanie Swilley. Also posted on LinkedIn

During my days as an agency recruiter, I had more than one client decide that all resumes had to list month as well as year in the employment dates...and any break in employment over 6 months had to be explained on the resume. This happened to coincide directly with the recession and skyrocketing unemployment rates, leading to some interesting discussions.

Sometimes a break in employment is a personal choice: time off to travel and recharge, staying home with kids.

Sometimes a break in employment is beyond your control: personal illness, family illness, struggling job market.

Whatever the cause, there are steps you can take to minimize the impact as well as present the time away in the best light possible. A break in employment doesn't have to be a death sentence for your career.

1. Before we get too far along, I've told you before and I'll tell you again: do NOT lie about it. Do not alter the dates of your employment. Do not create fake employment. Do not pretend you were doing independent contracting if you weren't. No lies. Period.

2. During your break in employment, take steps to keep your skills and knowledge current. Go back to school and/or get new certifications. It looks much better to have "January 2015 - December 2015: Grad School" than "January 2015 - December 2015: Unemployed" on your resume.

3. Get out there and stay active in your industry, even if you aren't being paid for it. Do pro bono/volunteer work, take on active roles in industry organizations or LinkedIn groups, write articles in your area of expertise. Stay active. Just like any continuing education, this experience can be listed on your resume in place of "unemployed." You fill a gap while expanding your skills, comfort zone, AND your professional network.

4. Arrange some as-needed consulting work. You can have a drastically reduced workload while keeping current in your industry and making some extra money. It's like option #3, but better. Key point: keep it legitimate. Make sure there are reputable references with whom an employer can verify this work.

5. Consider trying something new. Always wanted to start your own company? Give it a shot. Been thinking about changing industries? Do your research and see if you can intern somewhere. Maybe you'll change your path. Even if you ultimately come back to your original career, pursuing something out of your industry is far better than sitting around watching Game of Thrones (at least, it looks much better on your resume and sounds better to the employer). Added bonus: you'll come back with a unique perspective and added skillset that could be highly desirable by the right employer.

When you're ready to start your job search, let Reach Your Destination help you craft an accurate, compelling resume. We will not only make sure your resume reads well and is appealing to the eye, but we also have the expertise to make your time away reflect as an added bonus rather than a problem.

Have you dealt with large breaks in employment? How did you handle the gap?
