From a discussion I had with someone, we were wondering whether cases of force majeur (exceptional circumstances) should be mentioned in a CV/Resume.
For example, imagine a start-up entrepreneur willing to perform freelance missions to support revenues, until final product can be monetized.
Unfortunately, exceptional personal/family circumstances forces him to take care of a sick parent for about two years. He/she has to put his project on hold and take care of the situation. This is a big gap in his working experience and recruiter will find this suspicious.
Should he mentions this in his cv/resume or should he wait until the interview?
