Hi, I am M.Com Graduate and have 10 years experience as Accounts Executive. Four months back, I resigned my last job and moved into Europe with my husband for one year with the hope of finding jobs here. But it is very difficult for dependents to get job here, especially for non Europeans. So, I have started doing online EMBA from IICT, Lucknow. My question is: once I go back to India, will my career gap be a problem in getting a good job? Can I explain the employers regarding my situation. If yes, will it be accepted as a valid reason? Also, I have been working in non-IT firms so far. With my EMBA degree, will I get calls from IT firms? Please advice.
Hi Uglytyruth,
Your pen name arouses curiosity but the message posted shows admirable maturity and concern.
You are already a post graduate with experience in the relevant field.
The reason for not continuing to work when you have gone abroad has been explained very well.
The truth will hold.
Moreover you are trying to qualify yourself, instead of idling away by stating the nature of difficulty in getting a overseas job.
You are now gainfully utilizing your time and this will be acceptable( within the framework of competition) when you search a job later.
Regarding what job you will get, please do not bother about it now. Study well and come out with flying colours in academics.
As far as the future job is concerned, cross the bridge when you come to it.

Gaps in Cvs get noticed.(that is the plain truth)
But the gap which you may have has a good reason and you are adding to your educational qualification besides acquiring a wider horizon by foreign travel.
You need to put up all this professionally in your CV.
I do not think your future employer will take a dim view of gap of one year in this case.

Raghunathan and Nathrao are right. I am sure there is no bar for you to work in a charitable organisation without remuneration. Is your husband's job in Europe for the duration of only one year?
Hello Uglytruth,
After reading the description - I think there is no need for you to worry so much - you have good level of experience + knowledge.. Don't worry be confident; Confidence plays a big role in interviews..
Let me know if you would like to know about suitable opportunities in India.
All the Best!
Best Regards,
