There are many reasons people stop working. Use your own words to describe why you stopped. Here are some examples:
- "I'm a teacher and school was over for the year. By the end of the summer I was too sick to go back to work."
- "I did seasonal work."
- "I stopped working to raise my children."
- "I sold my business and retired."
- "I was laid-off."
- "I got fired."
