I have 3 years of gap in my resume. Please suggest me how do I start again as an HR professional.
Please leave the gap as it is, and explain before the interviewer the actual reason for your long gap and do not forge any fake certificates for the reason of filling of this gap.
Hello Seniors
Need your valuable advise in my case too
I have 9 yrs HR experience and with 5 HR related certifications
Have 2+ yrs gap due to maternity and child care need.. I am trying to get myself employed for a full time job..
But people point only on the gap and looks like not considering the profile, and also say some reasons on package etc..
I travelled and attended almost 4_5 interviews but looked like my resume was not screened properly prior and just interviewed and say reasons on package, gap, over qualified etc. .. Its basic thing to screen first and call, it was like waste of time, money (outstation), etc for me.
1) My question is, even I was a HR professional before and I am aware of interviewing things...
Even so I face things like, not screening properly and pointing on budget, sending us by not giving proper interview result notification, and make us waste our time, money etc...Had to think about regular people..how would they feel
2) As HR people, we know some reasons are very common in a girl's
career break in life like marriage, maternity, personal child care etc..
Why is that not considered for reemploying us?
Looking forward for your valuable input for further proceedings in my life
Excuse for any typo or written errors

Give proper justification about long gap when you are called for interview and do not bargain too much for the salary/benefits. Your objective should be to get a job and after some time you can change your job according to your taste. Remember, when you are jobless, accept a job (no choice).
With best wishes

Good morning!
In my opinion, employment gap is also good as it is usually the time when an individual actually thinks about their career path more often than not and in some cases it could be due to health reasons including welcoming new members into the family.
Please note, like advised above it is:
1. Always good to give the true reason for a gap
2. Calculate your actual work experience as per time engaged and not number of years since first employment taken.
3. Try and apply for jobs only where you feel you will be best utilized for your skill sets and not for your desperateness.
4. Even if there comes a time when you have no choice but to take up a job, please note there is dignity of labour in all jobs so please take an assignment where you think you can deliver and still keep looking for your most wanted job.
5. In my experience, most new parents both women and men have a challenge to adjust to lifestyle changes due to kids, hence being able to commit yourself realistically to jobs you can deliver than trying to get back to the game as before is a more sensible approach.
6. You should also look for jobs in companies that now are looking for women who have taken a brief hiatus from their career and see if you find your wanted job. Check this link for example...https://sheroes.com/articles/25-retu...india/Njg0NQ==
Hope these thoughts help you...all the best!
