How to Make a Resume Handling the Time Gaps
On the other hand, if you have rightful reasons for major gaps, such as going to school, having a child, or taking care of someone of your family, you can simply state this on your resume.
You could, in some situations, handle one of these gaps by putting the alternative activity on the resume with dates, just as you would do with any other job.
If you are currently unemployed, your other alternative is to write in some interim activity such as being self-employed. Even if that means that you are doing odd jobs.
Be aware that many people in the workforce experience some unemployment each year, even those who now are bosses have experienced being out of work themselves and may have more understanding of your situation than you realize.
