Representing a Career Break on Linked In, Resume, and Interviews
I have been on a career break for over a year. It did not work out at my last position. I was also sick. During this time I took several major professional certifications. I am now well enough to pursue fulltime opportunities but now have a glaring employment gap of over a year. How could I represent this time on Linked in Profiles, resume, and what should I say during interviews about this time? Should I even mention the real reason for the break was illness? Looking for advice on should I put the job title desired and then underneath put the certifications and other professionally related job activities. Or just leave it as the last position and put certifications in the certifications section
