Mind The Gap: How Do You Explain A Cancer-Related Gap In Your Work History?

Are you looking for a new job after cancer treatment? Perhaps you left your last employment after your diagnosis, or maybe you are still in your current job but want a fresh start in a new position, one which offers you more flexibility or a new career direction. 

If you have had to leave a job to undergo treatment, this brings up the question of how to explain those missing months (or years) from your work history.  How do you account for this time when updating your resume? Will you be expected to talk about it at an interview? 

I’m writing an article on this topic and would love to hear from you if you have any tips or advice or would like to share your own experience with readers. Please leave a comment below if you’d like to be included in the article.
