Background: Been with two big 4 firms for total of 3 years ( audit senior for one year.) just got laid off 2 weeks ago. I’m also in the army reserve, and about to go on one year mission next month to support Covid. Does this one year gap of not working impact my job searching opportunities once I got back from the deployment?
