I came to the United States in July of 2008 after graduating from College in Germany. Since I did not receive my employment authorization until February of 2009 there is a gap on my resume and I am not sure how to address it. Obviously my education section states that I went to College in Germany and my first job was here in the US but it didn't start until 2009 so I'm not sure if this causes issues? Will they think I was unemployed and I'm trying to hide it?
Would it be better if I addressed this in the cover letter and if so how would I phrase it? Because to me it sounds like I was an illegal alien at the time (which I wasn't).
Thank you all in advance.
