Imagine that you’re at the end of your life…
Are you going ot think – ‘I’m so glad I stayed in that job and achieved all that I did in that company
Or
I really wish I quit my job and went travelling

Your task:

  1. Find out if your employer offers a career break
  2. Speak to a recutier – how many jobs are in your sector at the moment – would it be easy to find another job after returning from travelling
  3. Look into the time of year you’re quitting your job
  4. Think about your return date
    For example, January is a very difficult month to get as its after Christmas and budgets are tight
    This applies mostly to Western countries who are in their Winter season (UK and USA etc)
