Thoughts on taking a year out to travel as a Junior? would like to take some time off but I know it’s a little difficult to get jobs as a junior strategist.

I retired from advertising at 27. Came back at 35. It’s still there. Unfortunately, I’ll never actually retire.

Considering next to no agencies have a structured way of hiring junior strats, and many don’t hire them at all, I would be hesitant to leave after such a short period of time.. there’s also an excess of talent trying to fill those very limited roles. Just my 2 cents. Equally, you need to do what’s right for you. Will your agency back you if you have an honest and open conversation? You don’t ask you don’t get, etc.

Agree with S1. It’s so hard to get in the door as a strategist, I would wait a little while before taking a break. Someone will jump into your role, and very hard to get another one. But if you really need to get away for a bit then do it.
