    What explanation should I give to interviewer for taking a 1 year gap in completing my education?

    I am going to appear for an analyst job in a IT company. I am prepared well for this interview but I fear that if they ask about the one year gap between my education. I had a backlog in my intermediate course, So I had to take 1 year gap before pursuing my graduation. Now if they ask about the gap what will I answer to them?

    Hi Recruiters are smart enough to see through where is the gap adn most probably the reason of it ! If in case they ask you about it then be fair and tell them all a truth adding you present educational status and abilities. In order to overcome your this weakness or a negative point you are required to ensure with lot more positive points and thats possible by the way you interact with them. -Be confident and sit decently and patiently. -when asked any question , the be spontaneous but associate it with the accuracy of reply as well. -prepare hard and have wonderfull conceptual knowlege along with your practcal skills. I hope all these things would mark inpression on recruiters and a positive sign from your way! GOOD LUCK

    Hello,


    Honesy is the best poliy even today. You should tell them truth from the very begining. Remember
    you they cross check your past they will find out everything about you so it is better to tell the truth
    and face the consequence. If you have the quality and guts you will come out as winner. So be brave
    and confident. You can crack the test.

    Bye,

    Don't be get upset. Be prepared well with the confidence for the interview.Nothing to worry if they asked for the gap before pursuing your graduation. Explain them very politely that you was suffered from some chronic disease at the time of examinations due to which couldn't prepare properly.So that gap was continued. Hope they may certainly consider your reply and If you could show your talent in the interview up to maximum extent possible, you will get it. I wish you all the best.

    Hello sir
    what you have to do is that said to him/her all the right things that you have a backlog thatís why you are unable to take apply for the job because if you doesnít said the real truth the while checking your mark sheets they will immediately know your past so itís better to you to said all the thing in a proper way otherwise may be they didnít give the job to you after checking your mark sheet.
    Thanking you hopes you like my suggestionÖ.
