There's a month long gap in your resume because you got laid off. What's the best way to spin that?

I was let go for x reason, but I was prepared financially for the transition and spent that time with my family and regrouping for my next position. shows preparedness, what's important to you, and you spent that time productively. my two cents

A month isn’t significant. 1. I needed a little time to reset and make sure that I was bringing my best self to the new role. 2. The new position didn’t start until a month later, but when I told my current employer they chose to end my relationship immediately. 3. I knew this job wasn’t the right fit for me so I felt it was best to leave right away even though I didn’t have a new position lined up yet.

No one cares about a one month gap but they do care if you lie to them or if you try to play it off with some wordsmithed explanations. People get laid off. The companies you’re applying to have laid people off. Lots of them. They know the score and won’t hold a layoff against you.
