Why am I not getting called for interviews?


I used to get called for just about every job I applied for..then, I decided to take a leave (for 4 years) from working. Now I hardly ever get called. What am I doing wrong in my resume or cover letter? I left a gap in my resume and explain the gap in my cover letter. I explain that I took a professional sabbatical and stayed current via volunteer committees, boards, seminars, and networking. Any suggestions?

    Good point about having the leave in both my resume and cover letter. Thanks!
