    How should I explain the interviewer about the gap taken by me for completing my education?

    I had worked in a BPO for 3 years and then I took one year gap to complete my education. I was doing my B.Com and one subject called Tax was a back lock. I had to pass this subject at any cost and I donít want to take this risk. Now I have passed this subject but with third class. Now I am again looking for the job. Most of the time interviewer asks the reason of my one year gap. How should I explain them about the gap taken by for completing my education?

    Dear friend-this is nothing you are to assure the employer that this a system three year degree course b.com can be completed with back lock. You are to tell interviewer the commerce degree consists with two parts one is part 1 and another is part 2.part one is consists with three groups if any candidate fails to complete one group then he/or/she is allowed to do part 2 exam(final)usually i appeard for part 2 as well as part 1(back loc)group unfortunately i cleared part 2.but b.com part 1 i cleared next year with 3 rd class as that time i was not in a position to pay due time,accordingly i grades 3 rd class,sir as a whole i am not a bad student please give me a chance to produce myself as one of like you.

    Thank you,

    Hi. I think you should tell them the Truth as it is that first you started working in a BPO and then you wanted to complete your education so you took a one year gap for completing your education. I know its sad that you got third class in Tax subject but thats not the end of everything.

    If you tell them the facts they will surely try to understand you and you will surely find a good job based on your capablities and hard work will help you to rise and rise. So please dont lose hope just because you didnt get good marks.


    Do tell them the truth because if they made a background check later your job may be in danger.


    Best of luck. Thanks

    Hello

    I think you should tell the truth and if he realizes that you are a hard working person and you were determined to complete your b.com then you might just get the job.

    No point in hiding the fact , infact i dont think you can really hide this so instead of lying to everyone try to be honest and some day if your luck favors you will get into a job.

    If someone respects honesty then he or she will respect you as a person and will select you on basis of your hard work and determination.

    All the best !!!

    Thank you

    There will be no harm if you tell the truth about a gap of one year in between the job. If you state wrong fact to them, then sooner or later they will come to know the truth and they may make you out of the company. Generally the back log affects only in the interview if they have not yet been cleared. Since you have cleared your backlog then it is considered irrelevant and you can state the truth without any fear or hestitation. As you mentioned that you have experience of three years in the field of BPO, it works as an strongest point of yours in order to grab the job. Prepare well for the interview.
