Gaps or lapses in employment can occur for a variety of reasons, sometimes on purpose and sometimes out of necessity. If you’ve been out of work for an extended period of time and are thinking about going back into your field, it might be a good idea to make sure you are up-to-date on any new changes that have occurred in your absence.
As you know, processes, rules, and procedures for almost all careers are ever-changing. Even leaving work for a couple of months can leave you coming back to work utterly lost and feeling like you have no idea what you’re doing anymore.
If your career field required training or special education to get started, chances are some things have changed since you’ve been out and a refresher on things would benefit you greatly. Not only would you be entering the workforce with confidence that you can still do your job, but employers will see your dedication to doing your job correctly and your desire to be up-to-date on all the new changes that have occurred over time.
