Last Week’s Poll Results:

QDo you ask candidates to explain the gaps in their resume? 

Yes 62% & No 38%

Let’s face it the past 2 years have been unpredictable at best, so it may be unfair to penalize applicants who might have been affected. While in the past a gap on a resume might have been a concern, the reality is that it shouldn’t be now. Gaps are not a bad thing, it’s just something to investigate to discover someone’s motivation, career goals, and what people did during that gap. Check out these great articles from Bustle & BenefitNews on how to handle a gap on a resume or what companies are doing to use it to their advantage.
