Is taking a gap year a career builder or a career destroyer?
Hamish and Andy made the Adult Gap year famous in their TV show in 2017 but in reality the dream of taking time off from your work can be both daunting and logistically overwhelming. There is nothing like hearing from those that have done this themselves or are about to do it. What worked, what didn’t and how did it all end up. Louisa Francis, General Manager, Customer Data and Privacy, Commonwealth Bank of Australia packed up her family in December 2018 for a year travelling the world.
In the latest episode of Fast Track, Louisa talks about the changing attitude by leading corporations on your ability to take an adult gap year, the personal and organisational benefits and the practical steps involved in the process.
We cover everything from entitlements and super to taking the kids out of school and conversations with the boss!
