I am in very difficult part of life.Need your suggestion badly. Currently I have resigned from my job to support my parents who are not keeping well and some property issue which needs to be settled.
I know property issue will take 2-3months to settle down which is of high priority as it belongs to my father and worth amount.
But I don't want my career to stop. So I am planning to write CAT this year and then go for MBA. Ideally MBA classes will start next year. Do this 1 year gap will have an impact? Suppose I get top 10 MBA school, so whether placement company will see it as negative point.
I have total 8 years of experience.
Please let me know your view on same.

Hello Karthik Sinha,
As long as you are able to justify/explain the gap clearly, it shouldn't matter. But also pl take care of the documentary evidence to the extent you can.
Like the saying goes: Truth can stand alone, only a lie needs an accomplice.
If what you mentioned is the correct reason, I am sure it can stand.
All the Best.

Thanks Sateesh,
Really gud to see ur convinicing reply. As reason is 100% true, i donot need to worry about it.
But what type of document evidence needs to be kept for a proof.
Can you point some example please?

Hello Karthik Sinha,
You mentioned your parents aren't keeping good health--maybe the medical records could be one such evidence.
But if it's more to do with their general health condition being poor, rather than any serious ailment, some companies may not give a lot of weight to such records.
In which case, you can use the property issues & cover the rest thru a standard phrase like--'personal family responsibilities @ home' due to which you felt you can't focus on the job & do justice to it. So the best thing you were able to think of was to quit the job, complete your personal responsibilities & then rejoin a job. Indirectly, you would also be conveying your focusing attitude--which most HR guys give credence to.
All the Best.

Thanks Sateesh with your valuable advice. Really greatful to you.
Actually my parents have gone old and they have peculiare old age problem like High BP, Sugar etc and they donot want to shift from there because of Property issue and love to their home place.
So my property document should work for me as we have to do registartion for them.
Let see what happens. One thing which i am really doubtful is getting call after career break.
Now only market is bit down and very few openings. Donot know if anything will become gud or bad in next 3-4 months. Already people without break will be also applying. i donot think, my resume will get any weightage over them.
Thats why planning for MBA as it will give weightage to my profile if previous plan doesnot work.
Let me know your view on same.
