How to prevent an employment gap on your CV

Having a lengthy gap in your employment could hinder your chances of gaining an interview, and even though there are ways of explaining a gap on your CV, it would always be better to avoid them if possible.

If you are actively searching for work but it’s taking longer than expected, here are some great ways to plug a potential employment gap in your CV…

Voluntary work

You should always remain busy whilst searching for a job and one of the best ways is to volunteer at your local charity or even Country Park. Not only will this keep your mind and body busy, it will also look great on your CV and show a potential employer that you are a hard working individual who is willing to give up their free time to help others and stay active.

It’s always hard to tell how long it will take to find a job, and as the weeks go by it’s very easy to get out of touch with daily tasks and responsibilities. Voluntary work is a great way to keep yourself sharp, and you might even gain additional skills and experience that you can also add to your CV.

Study or take a course

Depending on how long you feel you might be out of work, it may be a good idea to take on a part time course to further your qualifications, or even study at home to gain more knowledge for your next role.

The hardest part about taking this approach however is trying to balance committing to a course whilst getting a new job, and how the two might interact. So this may only really apply to someone who is likely to be out of work for a lengthy period of time, due to illness or other personal reasons.
