Hi,

in the context below is the word interruption OK, or would you suggest any other word? break maybe?

thanks,

A.

Context (short bio):

She has been with the firm since 2005 with an interruption when she served as Director for a local XY firm. She rejoined in 2007 at the position of the Managing Director.

    I feel that the sentence is stylistically poor and that a complete revision would enable the intended meaning to be carried much better.

    Unfortunately, the forum is not suitable for proofreading or wholesale re-writes.

    It may help if I said that "She has been with the firm since 2005" would be better as "She joined the firm in 2005, ..."

    ok I understand you cannot correct the whole phrase, but my main problem is the word interruption - is it undestandable or would you use other word in this context? thanks

    I think not; to me, hiatus implies something is missing and unaccounted for rather than a simple change of job that is explained.
