Actively seeking employment
Unfortunately, this candidate is now unemployable. At least, if they only describe the last 8 years of their career in this way, and if they only try to get a job via traditional methods - job ads, recruitment agencies etc.
Unfair? probably. But this is how it is - if your CV is anything like this, you are only opening yourself up for questions from the recruiter, questions that they will keep in their minds and not bother asking you about - they will simply go on to the next applicant.
So you’ve spent much of the last 8 years retraining, doing voluntary work, bringing up a family, looking after a sick / disabled relative, doing short term interim and temporary work not related to the career you want?
If it’s not in the CV most recruiters will assume you’ve been sat at home watching daytime TV. Or worse….
