Hey, it won't be a problem, just need to manage it well, don't get intimidated with offers on the bowls first.

Secondly, update and regularly apply on Naukri.com, do a certification to add a month duration. Sometimes cracking job is not easy, go on some for Online certification by implying your abilities for your tech stack.
Lastly, no one wants to hire a employee who is not doing anything, so just change the narrative.

All the best,

No no no no multiply it by 100. Don't worry tell them you could not join due to health issues and family problems. They will not even ask you because it is your personal life and everyone respects that. Just prepare nicely and nail the interview. Don't worry and All the best!👍😎😇

Gap is not an issue. As you are an immediate joiner so i would suggest not to accept the first offer you get, give them 7 or 10days time and trust me in those 7 or 10 days you can get multiple offers then you can make your final decision.

LinkedIn is the fastest way to get interview calls. Update your profile with immidiate joiner and try to apply atleast 10-15 jobs perday.

Do not worry, just prepare well and appear for interviews. You are an immediate joiner so you will definitely get offers. A friend of mine took 6 months off to care for family. He got offers when he decided to join back.

The downside of living in a "redder" area of the country now is people tend to see the sparkly unicorn (me) when conducting job interviews and not look at my qualifications.

Fingers crossed and please wish me luck. :)
