Resume Question

Postby ScroogeMcDuck » Sat Sep 09, 2017 4:20 pm

Hey guys,

So I'm updating my resume to apply. I have been out of undergrad for four years. I have an 8 month gap in my resume after undergrad graduation. Reason being, my consulting job offer was for a few months away and I did some pretty cool traveling during the interim. I'm probably just gonna leave that gap there without discussing it, as I have over three years of work experience after that so I don't think that admissions people are going to really care much. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

McDuck

No one will care. It sounds like you've been productive and employed since, so it is a complete non-issue. Good on you for actually taking some time off and enjoying life, don't worry the gap on the resume.

I've seen a few apps that give you a spot to explain any gaps in your work experience and you might want to talk about your travel there, but I wouldn't worry about doing so on your resume or anything. I think taking time off is generally agreed on as a net positive as long as it was intentional!
