      I had an unemployment spell of over 5 years. After the introductory stuff about skills I headed a section "Work History (excerpts)", missing out not only my 5 years unemployment but a short job with a firm which turned out to be crooked and some non-IT stuff. A reader might assume me to have been in non-IT employment in such times and, if not, he would ask and I would tell the truth.
