In life, we are always learning, growing, and developing. Career Breaks are taken for a whole host of reasons including for career transition, sabbatical, illness, family, or post redundancy. On a career break, you are continually developing new skills. The key is to recognise this and seize the opportunities along the way. CareerBreak People are here to support you in your continued development and to help you maintain your motivation and confidence throughout.
Often when you start a break you are focussing on the new life event ahead and don't take stock of where you are in your career. However, there is value in just touching base with where you are and taking note. It is very rare that those of us on long career breaks know when and how we might return to work. The career break can be as short as 1 year or 15 years +. An unexpected life event might occur and require an earlier return.
