#askdrcherry: From #RecoveredJobHunter – How do I address my job gap related to illness on both my job search & resume?

Happy day #RecoveredJobHunter – Discuss the #skills you gained starting from the time you got disabled. Most people see #recruiters as machines, thinking that they make automatic judgments. They are human beings that share our #collective #experience and who can relate to us. Just be #honest. Talk about what you missed most about working and how your situation prepared you to be the best worker. Lay the #foundation that you are building today while you were off and use it in your story-telling to demonstrate #resilience #Believe in what you can do and show that you can #overcome all #challenges In fact, you are already portraying it. You don’t make your illness stop you from pushing. Certainly, nothing will stop you from achieving #success
