You think you can’t. I say you can. Don’t over-think it, make it too big, or get in your own way. Just try it. Plug the gap. Being out of work, creates a glaring gap on your resume. Your work history has come to a (hopefully temporary) dead end. This makes job seekers lose sleep at night and I don’t blame them. So the question is: “What can you do about it?” I say, “Plenty, if you have something of value to...
