As I didn't get chance to learn new technologies in my previous job, I resigned from there and prepared for higher studies. Job market also went down that time due to COVID. Now I got a chance in a good institute.
I want suggestions on how to mention this 8 months break in my resume and linkedIn (a popular site for profile connection and job search) profile. Will it look professional/good if I mention this as "Break for exam preparation" ? (this is truly what I was doing during this period). Or is it ok to include this period within my higher study period? (That's also true, because the lessons I will learn in my university are based on top of what I studied during this break). Can anyone suggest any better way to mention the career-break in resume?
