What is a Career Break?
Different people see a career break as different things, and have varied aims and objectives. The recurring similarity between career breakers is the desire to dedicate some time away from their job and working life, and to spread their wings and discover more about themselves, learn something new, and experience life outside of the monotony of the traditional nine-to-five.
Maybe you just want to step back from the working environment and relax, or maybe you fancy getting a good grip on life and taking it in a completely new direction. You could also be wanting to do something you have just never had the time for, such as that teaching English project in India, learning a language like Spanish in Argentina or how about getting into sports coaching with a football trip to work with a soccer academy in Ghana. For the adrenaline junkie you may have always fancied a 12,000 foot sky dive in New Zealand.
A career break may be something that you have planned for years in advance. However in some cases people decide last minute that they desperately need to just get away. Many people will understand the word ‘sabbatical’ as a more common term to express an extended period of time away from work. This usually refers to a situation when your employer is holding your job open for when you return. In the case of many career breakers, the length of the break will determine the availability of your job when you return, and it maybe the case that quitting your job altogether is the best choice in order to fully recharge and reassess that career direction once you return from your career break.
