I was having a discussion with a friend and we have differing views so I wanted a wider "survey".
If a person, for whatever reasons, is not working during the COVID crisis will that be a damaging thing when they are job searching?
I say - ANY person reviewing a resume or history will move past a gap in employment during this crisis time. That person might make a note to ask why there's a gap but not necessarily toss that resume into the "trash can".
My friend says that reviewers still will toss out a resume with a gap - almost without question.
So, where do WE fall? Gap ok or Gap bad (specifically during COVID please)?
