Laid Off - Career Gap
I have recently beenfrom a tier 1 due to cost reduction, it was a contractual PM related role through a consultancy and the contract was not extended due to costs. This happened to various others from the consultancy also where the bench was too full to keep us on due to no work at the moment. I am not too sad about this as I was highly underutilized in the current role and was oversold the role in terms of responsibilities. Some of the team (I worked with) were pretty toxic and there was little to no learning, just me applying myself from my side.
I am now catered to look for the right role which matches my skillset, however this will possibly lead to a large gap on my CV. In the meanwhile I will be studying for the L1.
Q: How big of a gap is considered bad by recruiters and any possible way of justifying this gap?? - I was looking for the right role, whilst building upon key skills.. would not suffice i'm assuming.
