Imagine you’ve had a lay off - this is not a deal breaker when applying for a new job. This is more the reason to write a cover letter where you can put this in to context, how you used the time, the skills you developed, and so on.
Making sure you have ticked all of the boxes when applying for a role, and sprucing up a CV with a relevant cover letter before application.
Everyone has been guilty of under or overusing bullet points and getting the balance right can be the difference between engaging the hiring manager in your accomplishments or having your CV swiftly left to one side. Remember, it’s your CV and you need to be comfortable with it and should ignore any advice you don't like.
