How to explain being laid off.

It is nearly a guarantee that during your next interview the employer will ask questions to determine the reasons for ANY amount of time when you weren't employed, and this includes when/if you were laid off.

It’s important to first reassure them that your lay off was in no way a result of your productivity. It's a great idea to also be prepared to explain any circumstances at your organization that caused your layoff.

In the case of Lowe’s it…

Thank you for sharing these words of wisdom for anyone who is currently facing a layoff. I speak from experience and know-how…

Explain Your Gaps in Employment to Increase Your Interview Chances!

Folks, I've been saying this for as long as I've coached people on how to put together a good resume: Explain your gaps in employment!

New research from a ResumeGo experiment shows that:
*Applicants with work gaps had a 45% lower chance of receiving job interviews than those without
*Applicants who gave a reason for their employment gap received close to 60% more interviews than those who did not

If your gap requires a more detailed…

Seeking insight

If you are an employer, what do you see in a candidate with at least 3-5yrs experience but a 5 year unemployment gap between their last two most recent employments. Would you prefer someone with no experience but has the degrees? Or someone without the degrees and has the experience who would love to work towards growing in the company if given the chance to prove themselves. How would someone stick out in your hiring process?

Experience is better than education, there are things you cant learn from a book that you will get with hands on.
Anytime you…

Resume trouble

My problem isn’t experience. It’s too much experience. I’ve been a store manager of 5 different auto parts stores. Looks like I’ve job jumped....but the truth is that 3 of those companies recruited me out of the others. Don’t want to lie on my resume, but don’t really know what to do about it.

Don’t falsify info but customize it Michael Mooney . Remember, the sole purpose for the resume is to land an interview. Optimize…

Worthless At 54?

I have been looking for work for, no lie, 5 years now. I'm frustrated to the point of tears. I have a small criminal record from 20 years ago, (misdemeanors) and a gap in my work history as I recovered from breast cancer. I paid my debts to society, but society obviously won't ever let me forget. I get SSI, but need to work part time to pay my bills. I don't ask for much; food, shelter, a car and a phone. Is that too much to ask for? I WANT to…
