|I'm interviewing with several companies for SDE roles and have a gap of > 12 months since my last job. Is this a career killer and a huge red flag for any hiring manager?|
The real reason for a break was medical but then got out of hand given i had enough savings to support myself and sort of slacked for a while (like 3-4 months).
Now i feel completely healthy, refreshed, passionate and ready to rock again.
What is the best way to mitigate this issue when applying / interviewing?
Do you have any advices learned from previous experience or caveats i should be prepared for?
PS. My total work experience is 5+ yrs.
