Gaps In Employment History (Editor) Resume

An editor's resume that shows gaps in employment history is likely to be a cause of disinterest for the recruiters; however, putting forth your interests and goals clearly will certainly supersede the discrepancies. Recruiters generally look for your compatibility with respect to the duration of your stay within the organization. Gaps between employment in the past can become a good reason for the recruiters to judge you as an incompetent candidate. It is therefore essential that you organize your thoughts carefully and pick only those points that are the most significant and relevant to the employer's needs, to be included in your resume.

The career objective says it all

An effectively written career objective ensures the reader's involvement in your application. A resume bearing a lame objective is likely to be ignored. You need to place before the readers your career aspirations in such a manner that it succeeds in gaining their confidence. Remember that it must provide a clear outline of your intentions. It acts as an official title to your resume. So, make it as appealing as possible, but do take care that you don't make it superfluous.
