Ekkiden: the origins of a project as crazy as necessary!
Welcome to Ekkiden! Well, no, the story is a bit more complex than that. It's not an easy task to create a different, human, and innovative company...
Looking for a job can be a stressful enough process to navigate as to worry about even more variables, like explaining a resume gap. Recruiters will probably notice this gap while skimming through your curriculum vitae or address it during the job interview but worry not! Even if they look for the perfect resume, companies understand that being human comes with inconsistencies, pauses, and changes in plans.
Consider too that, if defended well, a resume gap can even turn into an asset that provides you with the opportunity to show more of your personality than with a conventional CV. Rather than dreading the inevitable question about what you did over that period, join us in discovering how to get noticed and transform a potential weakness into a major strength. Maybe it even turns into the differentiating factor that persuades the employer to pick you!
Everyone has a unique and ever-evolving path, and this is a fact employers are no strangers to. Own your story and don’t be afraid of judgment due to a period of inactivity. Just because you were not dedicating time to a formal job doesn’t mean you were not gaining key skills that could prove essential in a new role.
Expertise and talent are much more than a linear career path. Find the company that will value you for yourself, your experiences, and your potential. Seek the one who recognizes that a wide array of backgrounds comes with a broader perspective, which will contribute to a richer work environment. At Ekkiden we would be glad to help you reincorporate after a career break so feel free to browse our job offers page and find out if we would be a good fit for you.
