I am a recent graduate from college and am looking for jobs. Cancer is something I have battled on and off again since 2008. And I had to start a new chemo right after graduation- causing a gap in my resume until just recently, now that I can start to apply . While it's not that big of a gap, with nursing, most are expected to start right after graduation. I wasn't able to. I know a medical disease is a private matter that doesn't need to be disclosed, and I have been advised by a few people not to use "medical" as the wording in my reason for the gap. Would you have any suggestions as to how to approach the subject without crossing that line of disclosing too much?
