> How long did you go without a job for? Did you have refernces? How did you explain the gap in your work historY?

I went for a year without work. I couldn't find any and it was awful. I told potential employers that I had been caring for my elderly mother. Actually, having a one year gap wasn't really a problem. I have a lot of work experience and my Master's degree. Plus I do volunteer work all year long.


> You're going back soon, right? I hope you can reenter the environment and keep the reason you were out short and sweet. It's not anyone's business to know why you were out but they will ask and some may even get nosey. I would just keep your answer very brief like "I was sick" or
> "it's a long story" and don't elaborate as much as you think it would help.

Yes, I return on Tuesday. I am not telling anyone why I was off. I'll lie if I have to! It's going to be hard because I am returning full time. I will be full time in about four weeks.

> The workplace is the worst place for people to know your private business, especially if you work with alot of women. Too many gossipers, if you ask me.

Oh so true! I work in Human Resources and benefits is part of HR. That means there are about 4 people who know why I was off. But since they work in Benefits I am hoping they know to keep their mouthes shut!

Good luck with your search. You WILL find something.
