Inconsistencies in dates and titles between your resume and LinkedIn page may result in fewer callbacks or interviews from your job applications. And many people are afraid to have date gaps in their resumes.

Not only is it normal to have some gaps, especially if you’re a contractor moving from project to project, but you’re only human, everyone needs a break now and then, and the pandemic caused heaps of people to lose or take a forced break from their jobs.

So don’t fudge dates to mask gaps, because one of the most important skills a recruiter needs is a good BS meter. Your experience is your experience. Stand proud behind it.
