4 Tips to Improve Your Resume During Employment Gaps

Monday, March 13, 2017

Life happens to everybody, and sometimes, individuals are forced to leave their job. From maternity leave to spouse relocation, there are a number of reasons why an NP or PA may have an employment gap on their resume.

While some cases are more justifiable than others, all gaps in employment that lost last longer than a month should be explained. Clarifying your situation is vital because recruiters and hiring managers are keen on knowing why these employment gaps occurred. This is especially true when submitting applications online, as software scans can eliminate candidates without continuous employment dates.

This often worries potential candidates who have been out of the job force for sometime and who may feel that their reasoning may read more like an excuse. Take heart in knowing that your personal situation was likely reason enough to require you to leave the field for an extended time. However, it’s still important that you address the situation effectively on your resume so you don’t set off any red flags against yourself.

At NP PA Recruiters, we understand that life can change in an instant, and with it, your personal circumstances. If you have been out of the medical field for some time, but are now ready to return and re-commit yourself to your passion of providing quality healthcare services, we can help.

While you are undoubtedly excited about your future prospects, it’s still important to point out and substantiate the past period in which you were unemployed. Consider the following four tips to help you fill in and explain your employment gap.
