Finding a new job when you don’t have one
I’m considering leaving my job to take a 6 month break due to personal/health reasons. I’m not sick, but want to spend time getting more fit and generally enjoy life with less stress etc. I have 15 years of experience and can afford to do this financially for 6 months.
Would it be tough to get back to work after a break? Has anyone done this in the past and what was your experience? Do recruiters and companies see the break as a negative sign or are they understanding?
