What employers think of gaps in your work history
from The Work Buzz
When the recession began, the question that popped up repeatedly was, "Can I find a job in this economy?" Then, for those fortunate enough to be offered a position, the question often became, "Should I take a job even if it's a step down from my last role?" Job seekers want to make a strong first impression with employers, and a résumé with an employment gap or a work history that shows a step back isn't going to do that. Or at least that's what most job seekers fear. A new CareerBuilder survey found that 85 percent of employers consider themselves more understanding of gaps in your work history since the recession began.
