Meet Jaime Petkanics, a people and career development professional who has spent 10+ years hiring and building best in class employee experiences at companies like JPMorgan, Tory Burch, and Brooklinen.
Jaime and I will be discussing a question we get all the time at Career Contessa—how do you explain gaps on your resume. Maybe these gaps are because of a layoff or resigning so you can travel for a bit. Maybe you left your last job to care full-time for a loved one or to be a full-time parent. Whatever the reason for your gap and for however long the gap was, we’re going to address it all on today’s episode.
And because we’re here for that real-talk advice, be sure to stick around till after Jaime’s teachable moment because we’ll be answering your listener questions starting with how do you balance a side hustle and a full-time job especially when you’re just starting your career?
You can submit your career questions for us to answer on future episodes by leaving us a voicemail at 844-FEMAILS.
