Man Writing Resume

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the past year applying for hundreds of jobs to no avail. As time passes and my savings dwindle, that gap year on my resume becomes abundantly glaring. Sure, a global pandemic caused me to lose my job of 10 years and stall hiring nation-wide, but you can’t expect hiring managers to keep that in mind! I don’t want any future employer to assume that I’ve spent the entire past year lazing about, so I’ve decided to add unemployment to my resume. If the massive uptick in interviews I’ve received since are any indication, it’s actually been really good for me.
