I think we often feel (and unfortunately probably true to an extent) that a gap in employment could cause our chances of being hired to be reduced. As we initially want to be presented in the best light.

The thought came up as I was speaking to a candidate about their current position based on their resume and LI profile, which led to: “Chris, my employment there ended back in May”. They were still qualified and we proceeded.
