Gap In Employment Affidavit

With an exploding population like ours, unemployment is one of the major crises that we are facing as a country. We are touted as an economy on the upswing, but, what we fail to understand is as to why there is such a jobless growth. Year after year we find youngsters passing out with flying colours but, the growing number of aspirants doesn’t match the minuscule or abysmal level of jobs in the country. Unemployment is one such stark reality that we need to come to terms with. With the advancement of science and technology, the need for labour intensive workforce has declined considerably and since work gets automated, there is a serious dearth of jobs for people as companies focus more on high-end technology and automation, and don’t really need people to do works which can be easily automated.

Unemployment is a curse which has marred the growth of not only our economy but also of the budding young talent that our young guns possess. Unemployment can also be blamed on the kind of society that we Indians live in. A majority of us are dependent on a few people which make it very cumbersome and a threatening for the future of the society.

What Is A Gap In Employment Affidavit?

As you can decipher from the name, a gap in employment affidavit is created by a person, who had been off work for a while and had not been employed anywhere. In India, especially the employment gap is common mainly among ladies, as they are unemployed for certain duration owing to reasons like marriage, childbirth, pursuing higher education or hobbies and passions. Employment gaps can also be for saddening reasons like employee layoffs, retrenchment etc.

An employment gap is an eyesore for many, the reasons become difficult to explain and in a  country like ours, where employment opportunities are few and far between, it gets very difficult to get a job, that too after a break.

More often than not, employers are wary of taking people who have had a break in their careers, you might come across as a complete slacker to them.
