How to Explain the Gap in Employment On Your CV?

The interviewer is checking to see that it’s not because you are unemployable. The best way to answer this question is to be truthful. Whether it’s a career break to raise children or looking after a sick relative, travelling the world or you returned to university, answer with honesty.  Practice a short-concise response without over indulging personal issues which could derail the interview.

A good answer could be:

I returned to university to complete my Master’s degree in Project Management and I passed with a distinction. It’s something I been wanted to accomplish for a while. Now that the course is complete I am focused on my career; refreshed and eager to put my knowledge into practice.
