Nope. Did 2 months and it was glorious. Take advantage, especially with the holidays coming up.

Your concern is how it will look and not the 2-3 months of salary loss? You’re the kind of person who needs kids just so they get serious about life. If you don’t care about the money why would you care about how it looks?

funny

If you have to worry over 2 months of lost salary, you probably shouldn’t be lecturing others on financial responsibility…

Go for it.

You should be fine. Enjoy your break!

Not at all.

This is a great idea and the gap will be no issue. Just make sure you figure out healthcare during your break

Not at all, I did something similar but for a longer period and you'll probably regret it if you don't do it. Also word your gap in the future as a positive/learning experience and you'll be fine.

I’ve just started my career 2 years back and I really want to have an international exposure. I don’t want to change my career path and stick to consulting. The only options I have is: 1. Go for MS - which is a big investment 2. Start applying to other countries for job. But I’m not sure on which countries have opportunities since my overall experience is just 2 years. Would love to hear your suggestions.
