Are you tired of thinking about or answering this question? Have you considered looking for a short-term job or volunteer/service opportunity? If so, you are considering a “gap year,” a period of time when you take a break…to travel, volunteer, study, intern, or work. A gap year is also referred to as a deferred year, year out, year off, time out, time off. A gap year experience can last for several weeks, a semester, or up to a year or more.
