What do you think of taking a sabbatical year after college to do some travelling?
The more time goes by, the more I feel the need to discover places I have never been to. By that I mean mostly Asia and Latin America, though not only. But the thing is, wouldn’t taking a gap year look bad on a resume? I know, please don’t tell me it’s not about what you put on your resume, I know. But I can’t shake off the idea that now is not a great time to do this kind of thing. In the end, when I start looking for a job, HR will get my CV before anything else, and I certainly don’t want to hurt my chances of getting a good job, because I do value the professional part of my life quite a lot.
What do you think?
