you want me to ask you?’



’That question’, is the obvious answer, but you’ll need something

better.



You could admit that your CV has a gap in it, and then explain why. ’I

took a year out to travel the world/write a novel/invent a new clothes

peg and I was worried you’d see this as a lack of direction. In fact,

the experience was very valuable.’ Do not say: ’I don’t want you to ask

about my criminal record.’
