A gap year can be taken at anytime, by anyone, to do anything! For young people considering their options either before University or before full time work, a gap year may provide that all important work experience that every employer looks for. A gap year will also expand your knowledge of the world and boost your confidence, both of these qualities can help you win that job!
Gap years (or even a gap six months!), can be spent working, volunteering or just travelling. Remember employers will be looking for the experience you have gained during this period, so working and volunteering will impress more than just an extended vacation.
