I've had a bunch of interviews and short-lists and jobs cancelled out from under me etc but still don't have anything for next year. It's a strange situation: to come so close one minute to having a dream job and then staring at having nothing for fall the next. Now I'm not sure if it's worth trying again: a gap on the CV won't look too good. Or is this worry overstated (I can't seem to get a straight answer on this)?My sense is that it will probably look somewhat bad, maybe even pretty bad, but not so bad that it's definitely not worth trying again. Anybody else got any ideas?
