Can you explain about the gaps in your career or in your studies?
Gaps In your career or in your studies are common. But this is not one of the easy ways to the job. If you got any gap you have to work out a possible reason for the gap. Many would d say I was down that year with a terrible disease. But keep in mind that you will have to show them the proof such as medical certificates if ever you decide to go with such answers.
Gaps can really be caused because you decided to take a break from your career and develop your skills with a bit of training. In fact this can go in your favor as the interviewer would spot an ambitious candidate in such a person. So it totally depend don the reason you provide the interviewer with.
So if you don’t have a favourable reason to say to your interviewer, try to remember any favorable incident /project you had done during those times. It might be small or irrelevant but such things can save you from the wrath of the interviewer while addressing them.
So fill up the gap with something relevant. If you can find something relevant to the banking sector it would add value to your profile as you may explain it to them like this
Here is a model answer for you
I always wanted to join banking. But I felt that I did not have the adequate qualification or knowledge to do well there. So I took a small gap from my high paid job and went on to work private with a small private firm in the banking sector. Of course I was not in any official position there and the payment also was not too good, But that experience helped me understand the banking sector much better in terms of practical experience.
So prepare an answer that suits your gaps if ever there is any. If not you do not have to worry about this question.
