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?

Social Media Profiles: What Does Yours Say About You?

A Tech fan through and through, Jim was geared up for the Georgia vs Georgia Tech game. A handful of his college buddies came over to watch the game and relive the old days (with improvements). Instead of Bud Light, they each have a bottle of their favorite craft beer. They're in Jim's man-cave basement, kicked back in La-Z-Boys, and watching the game on his 50" LCD...no more sitting around a 19" tube TV in metal folding chairs for them.

As the game progresses, empty bottles start to accumulate. The game is going well for Tech and the guys take to their smartphones during a break. With a little too much social lubrication, Jim's Facebook feed is flinging insults at UGA grads (who will only end up working at McDonalds, surely) and he is sharing links to www.walmartacademy.com (which redirects to UGA's homepage). All in the spirit of fun, healthy competition...of course.

.....

What Jim didn't consider was that the hiring manager he was interviewing with was a UGA graduate...and, like 93% of hiring managers, checks the social media profiles of every candidate prior to making a final hiring decision.

As demonstrated in the 2014 Jobvite Social Recruiting Survey, social media has a very real role in the hiring process, and it's not a role you can afford to ignore. The impression your profile gives has the potential to make you look like a quality employee...or a hiring mistake to avoid at all costs. So, how do you put your social media to work for you all while remaining authentic?

Facebook:
Check your privacy settings; check them often. Keep your privacy settings to friends only and you shouldn't have to worry about anyone seeing your posts/pictures unless they already know and (probably) accept you for who you are.
Since Facebook's privacy settings seem to change on a whim, err on the safe side and try to limit your posts to updates and pictures you'd be okay showing your grandma. Jobvite's survey shows that recruiters and hiring managers reconsider hiring decisions negatively over illegal drug references (83%) and sexual posts (70%).

Twitter:
Think before you tweet. Once your tweet makes its way to the internet, it's there. You can edit, delete, whatever...the original can always resurface.
It's a common belief that spelling, grammar, and punctuation are unimportant in social media, but the 66% of hiring managers and recruiters who have negatively reconsidered a hiring decision beg to differ.
Other things to avoid or handle with care: politics, alcohol, guns, and profanity.

LinkedIn:
LinkedIn isn't just a source for checking out a candidate's "personality"; 79% of recruiters have made a hire through LinkedIn. Keep it honest; keep it professional.
Let Facebook be the home of all your personal and/or controversial content. LinkedIn should be reserved for professional, business-related content.
Give your LinkedIn profile the care and attention it deserves. This is often your first impression with a recruiter or hiring manager - make it as positive as possible. 65% of hiring managers/recruiters have positively reconsidered a hiring decision based on listed volunteer and charitable work.

You might decide that you wouldn't want to work for someone who decides your merit based on your political affiliations and that's fine. Just make an educated decision.

With new services such as Cyber Dust and Xpire on the horizon, the situation will surely change. For now: lock it down, exercise good sense, and keep it classy. And if you want to make the most of your LinkedIn profile, Reach Your Destination can help you do so!

What about you? Has social media ever cost you a job?
