This question already has an answer here:
I'm a software engineer.
My job history looks as follows:
- Company B, 2009 - present
- Company A, 2004 - 2006, 2008 - 2009.
So, there is a time 2006 - 2008, during which I was in the army (There is a compulsory service in my country). This kind of activity has (almost) nothing in common with my profession, so, I don't think it's very good idea to put army years at my resume. On the other hand, it leaves the unemployment gap non-explained.
I would be glad to hear suggestions on it.
