If you leave unexplained gaps in your CV timeline, it gives your potential employer the chance to question the information and be concerned.

TIP 4 : It’s so important to piece the gaps together, explain them and be clear. If you have had periods of unemployment through redundancy, change of career or change in circumstance then it’s important to address that. If you have been through additional training, soft skill development, family responsibilities or volunteering – please put that in your document.

Don’t leave the employer guessing.
