Working with Gaps on Your Resume: How to Creatively Frame Your Volunteer and Life Experiences

Many of us take time off from working, for one reason or another. Sometimes, it's by choice, and in other cases, it is forced upon us.  Join this webinar to learn the best ways to explain employment gaps on your resume, as well as to use volunteer and other experiences to obscure your time off.
