Hello,I am preparing a CV after a 5 year career gap to bring up the children. There is lots of help on monster.co.uk, but I'm wondering how to put down the 5 year gap on a CV? How would you word it/explain it to a potential employer?
Anyone? Or if this has been answered somewhere else can you point me in the right direction.Thanks
My 4 year gap is filled with the voluntary work I've done for NCT branch where I live. Have had 3 interviews out of 3-4 applications lately. But no part time job yet.
Ive been a SAHM since 2010 so on my cv its got Jan 2010- present Raising a family then underneath its got three skills ive gained from this so: patience/ sympathy/ time management etc. Ive had two interview offers so far so cant be that bad.
I spent 4 years in France having a career break. I just put that down. We were doing a barn conversion so I just put the dates then "Career break in France project managing a barn conversion" I'm sure a potential employer has come across it before. I suppose it might be an issue if you were trying to get a role at the same level you were at before but if not then shouldn't be a problem.
