I've been unemployed for about 8 months now and my previous position was a temp role in operations at a top 3 credit rating agency for 6 months and before that I had a 2 year unemployment gap ( traded stocks and options) after graduating from a non target school with no internship experience. So far I've been able to land about 5 interviews in the 8 month span. I have been using temp agencies and also applying for full time positions mainly in operations/admin, middle office/back office. I fear that this job history gap is a major flaw in my search to enter the corporate financial services industry. Is there any advice anyone can give me on improving my chances of landing a role ?
