Resume Pitfall

One of our personnel gurus told me that all gaps in employment
in a resume should be explained, particularly for men. If a woman
showed an unexplained gap in employment, the assumption was
that she was raising children, but if a man showed an unexplained
gap, the assumption was that he was in jail.

If this were a sociology group, I might comment on this unfair
bias against men. Since it's for tech writers, however, I'll not
start up an inappropriate thread.


Simplicate, and add light.
