Career gap on your Resume? Here's how to explain it #shorts

Can you explain the reason for the career gap on your resume? That’s the question HR specialists can often ask when they see you have a career gap in your CV. Here’s how you should answer it. 1. Be honest and provide a concise but truthful explanation for it. You don't need to go into excessive detail. 2. Frame your response in a positive light. Focus on what you did during the gap to improve your skills or any relevant experiences that you gained. 3. This will help the interviewer see the connection between the gap and your potential as an employee. 4. Maintain a confident tone throughout your explanation. Show that you're enthusiastic and ready to contribute to the role. Here's an example of how to address a career gap in an interview: --- Interviewer: "I noticed a gap in your work history from [date] to [date]. Can you tell me more about that?" Candidate: "Certainly. During that time, I took a career break to address some personal matters and spend more time with my family. However, I remained committed to professional growth. I took online courses in [relevant skills], volunteered for [relevant organization], and freelanced on a project that allowed me to develop [relevant experience]. I believe these experiences have enhanced my skills, and I'm excited to bring this newfound knowledge to this role. I'm now fully ready to re-enter the workforce, and I'm enthusiastic about the opportunity to contribute to your team." Remember that everyone's situation is unique, and the key is to demonstrate how you've used your career gap constructively and how it has made you a stronger candidate for the position. This approach will help you address the career gap with confidence and professionalism. #cpi #careerusa #careerpathwayinstitute #jobusa ___ If you want to see more career advice from CPI, please like this video and follow us on social media: https://www.instagram.com/cpiusa/ https://www.facebook.com/cpinstituteusa https://www.linkedin.com/company/cpiusa/ https://www.careerpathway.info

3 non-obvious ways to get a job in the USA #shorts

3 non-obvious ways to get a job ✔️Networking Get out there and talk with people! Networking is one of the most important tools in any job search, as many employers will hire someone they know or who was referred by their network. Talk with friends, family members, colleagues, and other professionals in your industry or field—you never know which connections might lead you to an opportunity. ✔️Volunteering Not only is volunteering great for gaining experience that looks good on your resume, but it also helps expand your professional network and increase your visibility within certain industries or fields of interest. Plus, many volunteers find that their volunteer work leads them directly into paid positions down the line! ✔️Online courses Taking online courses in subjects related to potential jobs can help demonstrate knowledge and expertise that may not otherwise be apparent from just reading a resume or CV alone. Additionally, taking classes can familiarize you with new software programs or technologies used in certain roles so you hit the ground running when applying for jobs requiring specific skillsets! Overall these methods may take longer than more traditional routes such as applying directly to posted openings; however this extra effort has its benefits since networking allows you build relationships that last beyond landing a single position while taking classes helps boost credentials faster than waiting around for opportunities at companies with standard hiring practices like posting open positions online. #cpi #careerusa #careerpathwayinstitute #jobusa ___ If you want to see more career advice from CPI, please like this video and follow us on social media: https://www.instagram.com/cpiusa/ https://www.facebook.com/cpinstituteusa https://www.linkedin.com/company/cpiusa/ https://www.careerpathway.info
