before studying in universities for vacation and working. In
essay, the benefits and drawbacks of spending a period will be elaborate on before my conclusion is reached. On the one hand, youth who decided to spend a
travelling and working can get an experience in exploring the world and can learn some soft skills which cannot find in the classroom. To illustrate, they can join work and travel programmes to be an internship employee in the United States, which is a good opportunity for students to try individual living, learn how to work with others, and

before starting higher education enables young people to explore themselves.
, they can decide better which field of study they want to apply to pursue their favourite jobs, which they do not regret later.
On the other hand
, it is apparent that students who do not continue studying immediately finish their degree slower than those who do not take a gap.
, they start working later and sometimes get a lower salary compared to those of the same age because they have a
more job experience.
