“HR might be thinking, ‘OK, this person has been on their own; are they going to just come here and hang out until things get better?’ He will need to come up with compelling reasons why he wants to go back to the corporate lifestyle,” she said. “The prospective employer wants to feel they are selected, rather than think the candidate is running from something else.”
