How do you explain your gap in employmentHow do you explain your gap in employment || Interview Questions Answers #4

Employment gaps are always tough to explain. When a candidate is applying for a job, a large unexplained gap in their employment history can sometimes ruin their job interview. Interviewer get this idea after reviewing your resume. When references get checked, the factors most frequently verified are dates of employment, starting and leaving salary, and educational attainment. Untruths in any of these areas are grounds for dismissal with cause. You must be ready to walk through your resume without hesitation. When asked about employment dates, don’t make any attempt to hide the gaps. Having long gaps in your work history sometimes gives employers the wrong impression about your abilities and ambitions. However, if you have 1 – 2 months gap then a gap of a few months is nothing to worry about.

So, What should be done?Before you go to the interview, try to identify a few things you gained from your time away.  It’s a plus point if you can put down work as a freelancer. Include in your answer that you spent the gap volunteering, developing a new skill to increase your relevancy in the work force.  Avoid mentioning a reason like personality conflicts, poor performance, or any other reason that could make you a risky hire. It’s better to inlude great examples like, volunteer work, freelance and consulting projects, and taking graduate, certificate or continuing education courses. Focus on showing that you’ve been busy and how your experience will help you be a valuable employee.

The following factors are acceptable reasons for leaving a company: Location, Relocation, Lack of Advancement Opportunities, Lack of Motivation and challenges, Culture, Job Security, your company or department restructured or downsized somewhere etc.

The tips you need to remember:

 – Don’t Tell them your life story.

 – Be Confident, Positive and Honest.

 – Rehearse your answers for leaving every job.

 –  Keep your answers short and sweet.

 – Emphasize any activities you undertook during the gap to improve your professional standing.

 – Mention about freelance or contract work you’ve done.

 – Ensure that you were engaged in any other valuable experiences, for example volunteers or major personal projects.

 – Explain that you are 100% ready to dive back in full-time.

 – Highlight any valuable skills learned during your gap months  


 

Answer 1: I’ve never been without a job that long before. I had to leave my job a few years ago to deal with some unexpected medical issues that came up. During that time, I have really perfected my time management and organizational skills and did many freelancing work from my bed. Later when i wake up from my bed, I started volunteering at a local food bank where I’ve overseen and coordinated several food drives, which is why I’m so excited about this opportunity to work for your company.
