Everyone has heard of the honeymoon, most will know about the more recent reason for a holiday the babymoon, but have you heard of the new kid on the block the jobbymoon?
The jobbymoon is basically taking a holiday after leaving a job and before you start the new one. We’re certain a lot of people will have eyes rolling and branding it as just an excuse for yet another holiday, and that’s fair because who doesn’t like finding a reason to take time off? However, the purpose of the jobbymoon is not just to kick back and go wild for a week, but to actually have some downtime and set yourself some goals before the typical routine of the working life starts once again.
Taking this much needed time before you start your next position will not only allow you to shake off the dust from your previous employment, but gives you the opportunity to think about your achievements and assess your priorities, as well as setting new goals for your life and career. It could just be a weekend, or even a month, it doesn’t even matter where you go, it’s simply all about closing one door properly before you head through that next one.
Now get planning and think about your perfect jobbymoon destination!
