Maternity leaves have been in the limelight for quite some time. So much so that a six months’ maternity leave has been passed in the Rajya Sabha. Now, it has become mandatory for all offices in both public as well as private sectors for granting a half a years’ maternity to women who have been expecting.
However, some women decide to put on their mom shoes and take time off from work for a good twelve months or even over a year at times. While some employers understand the time off was for a reason and are happy to offer you a job that you truly deserve, there are others who shy away from giving you that position taking into account the length of your maternity gap.
In some way, they tend to take it the other way around and consider it as a black mark on your resume. Thus, when writing a resume, it is important for new mothers to accommodate their maternity gaps correctly. A little bit of creativity can go a long way in addressing your maternity gap in the best way possible.
