A Friendly Reminder

Perhaps this is common sense, but survey findings provide proof.  99.7% out of the 329 employers surveyed agree that important life skills can be obtained outside of the workplace.

A gap year is an excellent opportunity to create and develop new skills, whether in a working, learning, volunteering, or traveling environment.  This is just one positive finding from my survey.  However, I will be blunt: not all employers are in favor of job applicants taking time to have a gap year.  More findings to come.
