I worked at the same company for 24 yrs and progressed to a supervisor role over that time. Once laid off my wife and I looked into starting a mobile medical office to the point of having a business plan and talking to partners but then other elements of her career opened up and we stopped pursuing it. I then switched to a stay-at-home father role to support her progress. How should I explain the one year gap in my resume?

In I were in your shoes, I would explain the gap just like you did in the question.

I my opinion, it is not necessary for you to include the startup in your résumé but be ready to explain the gap.

As an hiring manager, your explanation is perfectly acceptable.

what's your interest
