I have a professional colleague who is coming back into the workplace after taking off the last seven years to raise her children. She asked me to review her resume and that leads me here to ask the collective whole on what I should advice her.
Right now her resume says-
Family / Community 2002-2009
Raised family of four and contributed to community and school activities by leading volunteer events.
She has a volunteer job listed from 2009 to present.
I am thinking she should just leave the gap and not list it in her resume. What is the prevailing thought on this?
