In my previous work experience I had a gap after getting laid off. I held various temp roles. How would include this on resume or LinkedIn?

I was in a very similar situation. I haven't included it on my Linked In.

But for my resume, I've divided my experience into 2 diff groups (working experience and non-relevant experience where I listed all my odd jobs with timeframes but without responsibilities performed). This way you're saying I was busy all that time, but here is the experience you really want to know about.

Change the dates of your work experience to years not months

Pros: ?

Cons:
- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go

- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck

- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.

And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this?
