SHOW DATE: OCTOBER 23, 2013
Stop thinking the gaps in your resume are a bad thing.
Whether you’ve recently been laid off or have been out on the prowl for months, what really matters to a new employer is not that you didn’t have a job, but what you did with your time while you were out of work.
Did you just sit around and watch Judge Judy all day long? That’s a problem—Judy’s going to cost you your next job.
So what do you do? Volunteer, go out, get active. Involve yourself with a nonprofit, or help homeless cats, or do what Auntie Evan did and start an organization that helps inner-city youth with their college essays.
Do anything, just don’t sit around and do nothing.
