Can A Career Break Benefit Your Resume?

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

Featuring Bhagayashree who had a 10-year break before she joined #PEOPLECENTRAL and how she adjusted back into work
