WOMEN@PEOPLECENTRAL Series 003
It used to be that having a gap on your resume was considered taboo.
These days, it is becoming more acceptable for professionals to take a career break to pursue their passions, care for others, volunteer, travel, or consider a career transition.
Millennials, who makeup 35% of the global workforce, are leading the way with this new mindset.
A recent report by Manpower Group shows that 84% of Millennials foresee significant career breaks along the way.
This trend reinforces the idea that "career waves” are replacing the “career ladder” of earlier generations. Taking a break from work doesn’t have to be a blemish on your resume.
In fact, it could even be a selling point. Whether you want to hit the pause button and return to your current job or make a drastic change, here are four ways a break can benefit your career.
One such experience we would like to share through one of the stories series - Women@PeopleCentral
