My academic background is in International Relations. So, when a career counseling client comes to me with concerns about a “resume gap," I always smile (to myself) thinking about the good ole days of the “missile gap” when the U.S. thought it was behind the Soviet Union (regarding the number of missiles each side had). Common wisdom had it that the U.S. was far behind and had the catch up. The truth was actually closer to the opposite. It’s a good analogy because most people believe that the gap on their resume is a gap that needs to be explained, not filled. The problem is, if you have to explain something, it is, by definition, a problem. So, the best way to deal with a resume gap – meaning that you have been unemployed for some time – is to fill it. The question is, with what?
We get it. Looking for work can be scary, especially if you’ve been at it for a long time and haven’t gotten any results.
