Susan Ireland teaches us how to deal with work gaps on your resume in this video. If there are gaps on your resume, your employer could possibly have a bad impression of you. To avoid this, first write years in your work history instead of months. This will simplify your presentation and also dissolve work history gaps. Next, ask yourself if you were doing any activity that time that is related to the job you are applying for. If so, write down that information to cover the gap in work history. If not, write down something that shows a positive about you, being creative and honest!
