Everything you need to know about taking a career break

So, what exactly is a career break? What can I do on a career break? How do I organise a career break? What would I gain from taking a career break?

These are all questions that I asked myself when I planted the seed in my head of quitting my job to travel the world.

I completely under-appreciated how much taking a career break would change my life, add excitement, fulfilment and how much I would learn about different cultures. Career breaks can give you a new lease on life, enhance your future career and teach you skills that you will be able to utilise after you return home.

Career breaks, sometimes referred to as sabbaticals (if you keep your current job) or gap years (usually taken before you have an established career path) all result in the same thing.....time to yourself to spend however you please, to travel the world or pursue a passion.
