A year of service is hardly a year “off”. It’s hard work and pretty intense. In some ways it may not appear directly in line with your long term plan but it may just be what you need! A year of service can fine-tune a person’s career interest, focus their academic inquiry, it can give one needed maturity and it certainly builds character, virtues and personal strength. Many employers and graduate schools look favorably on a person who has given back to the community in a year of service.
