I had joined the MNC for its money, and brand recognition.ONly to find after 2 years. In all those 2 years I was in the MNC (earlier company) I think I stripped myself of all my coding skills, my problem solving skills, and some very bad lazy habits have crept in. Maybe that is why I was one of the folks who got laid off in a merger move.
I left that and found a new job at a higher sal and already in it for 2 months. I think I am not good enough for my present 4 years of work exp that my resume boasts of. (That is the time I spent in the company and not exactly the "EXPERIENCE")
Adding to my woes, In my present job I do not get enough time to reskill and refresh the fundamentals. Some kinda fire fighting going on in present company all the time.
NOW, I wish to take a complete break. A flat 2 months out of everthing else with just me and my rekilling list in my cosy cave.
Problem -------- How to write in resume about this gap?
Option 1) Do not mention in resume about present 2 months old job. (I will be leaving my present job that is 2 months old and 2 months more for the break + 1 month for new job search that translates to approx 5 months of inactivity in a resume )
Option 2) Mention in resume about the job I did for 2 months and left. (In this case the recruiters will be asking for explanation of why I left my job so quickly)
Thanks Don, I do not think that the fire fighting in the company is allowing for catching up with the reskilling.
Can afford the break as I am not married as yet, and have a small decent amount stacked up in bank.
By your saying "ommission is not a lie" Do you want to say, omitting the record of 2 months stint in my present company will be better then adding that in resume and raising speculations why this guy left after just 2 months?
