"Gaps in education or gaps in an employment history can create a negative reaction in one's potential employer," warns Jack Robbins. "They can give the impression that an individual thought of his or her employment as more of a 'day job' than a career and certainly it can be interpreted as a lack of commitment--an immediate disqualifier in most cases as we consider executive-level jobs."

"But what if those gaps have mitigating circumstances that, far from representing negatives in assessing a job candidate, could contribute to a positive regard for the individual?," Robbins asks. "This is when the narrative explains fully the nature of such a gap and its rationale and it is vital to make the case preemptively before questions arise and avoid having to play catch-up with a potential employer's concerns."

"A man or woman needs to know how to make a presentation that keeps the wrong questions from ever being asked by answering them before they became questions," advises Robbins.
