Gap Years

Gap years demonstrate a range of extracurricular skills and assets that employers look for. If you travel abroad during a gap year you are showing keenness to explore new and alien avenues and an ability to adapt to unfamiliar situations. Many gap year programmes also offer the opportunity to work abroad which embellishes these assets even further. A domestic employer can be comfortable that you will fit in and work well with their team if you managed to do so abroad, especially if the country was foreign language speaking.
