Get Me Job

Can you explain this gap in your employment history?
What have you been doing for the "X" months since you were last employed?

Unfortunately, a year ago I had to leave my job to care for my father, who was unsuccessfully treated for cancer.
I was forced to make a choice between my job and family commitments, due to my employer not being able to afford me a prolonged period of absence.
At the time I had considerable savings, and was able to perform this role. After his death, I administered his estate, which turned out to be unusually complex and disposed of property, investments, and more.
