Travel to Boost Your Career

Is it a good or bad idea to take a trip after you've been laid-off? Some people think it's a great mental health break while others think it's a foolish waste of resources. Weigh in and share your comments below. Read on for both sides of the argument and to see where I stand:

Bad Idea: Sit Tight and Save Up VS. Great Idea: Take Time Out to Travel

Share your comments on whether traveling is a smart move after a layoff and why you think that way. And tune into my career talk radio show this month for my interview with journalist Melanie Nayer on the benefits of a travel sabbatical in between jobs!

If you love to travel (and I do), I recommend taking a trip. And in today's economy travel deals and discounts can be found. i even asked (and received one) when inquiring about a room rate at hotel reception last week.

Sure, your trip may not be a luxury vacation, but you have time and actually time is the best friend for someone who loves to travel.

So take that trip and enjoy it. You have the rest of your life work....think about when will you have the time again. Not all of us are good at creating that.

stay adventurous,
