I wouldn't think so. People take time off between jobs all the time, usually to enjoy some extra vacation.

One month is not a gap, just call it "a well-earned break"!

only the thing is you won't be getting salary for that month. Enjoy, who knows how much workload will be there in your prospective company.

No way should it cause an issue....sometimes the current company notice period is say 3 months and they decide to leave you after 2 months..then one can prepone the joining in the new company or take a break during that 1 month.Only thing is that you have to be without salary for few days..but worth spending time with family..

How about 4 month gap.

I came to Australia around 4 months back and I didn't get any offer till now. Will that make any problem.

Since it is 4 months, I really afraid.

Thanks,
Jose.

Jose,
It doesn't matter as that is what you have. If the question were "should I plan to take a four month vacation between jobs", you might have a difference answer.

I think a four month gap is ok if you have it once or twice. If between every set of jobs is a long gap, it could look bad.
