Considering Gap Year Options?

Many organizations offer 'gap year' jobs, which are short-term positions (1-2 years) following graduation. You're already familiar with some of these employers -- the Peace Corps, Teach For America and others -- but did you know that opportunities are available for a wide range of career interests? Check out our Fellowships and Gap Year page for tools that will help you research options in fields like entrepreneurship, education, health care, public policy, STEM and more. Similarly, numerous organizations offer Rotational Programs, which allow you to try out different areas of a company over 1-2 years.
