    If a person have a gap of some month or year after completion of his course then will it be a problem for him to getting job?

    Actually I have completed my course in 2007 therefore there is a gap now.

    Please tell me is it a problem for me now?

    hmmmm... it's a weird question. I have like 28 years gap, or in other words - never got any course about animation or rigging, but still had no problems getting a job. If you have skills then even a 2 or 3 years or 10 years gap won't be a problem. In other hand if you don't have any than even if you jump straight out of a classroom you won't get far.
    Skill is the only thing that matters

    I don't think any of us started school when he/she was 6 years old with the one and only intention to rig , write Mel Scripts, animate characters, render in Renderman, Supervise VFX films or whatever
    Actually this business is so young that I honestly can say ALL the gurus in the industry have studied something else than what they are doing now. That's it.

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much.

    Get your skills up to a level that are great and companies will want to hire you.

    here are the things I look for in a good rigger (as an animator):

    In no particular order:

    1) Inventiveness
    2) Artistic Eye
    3) Intelligence
    4) Humility
    5) Eagerness
    6) Cooperativeness
    7) Ability to complete a task
    Ability to communicate
    9) Understanding of motion, movement, bio-mechanics
    10) Understanding of Animators
    11) A sweet reel.
