I had open heart surgery 10/31/18 (my second). I am hoping to return to work in August. I want to go back to my roots in a staff position in higher education. I have 12 years of higher ed experience.
I am quite concerned about whether a hiring manager will give me a chance to explain the 9-10 month gap in my resume. I am trying to formulate a statement to explain without making me look like a risk they can't take.
I know that they can't legally discriminate, but it happens.
