What Is a Sabbatical?

Definition: Sabbatical

A sabbatical is extended leave from work that is a voluntary arrangement between an employee and her employer. Sometimes these are paid leaves (or partially paid) and some are unpaid, but usually you'll need to have been with your employer for a specified period of time to qualify for taking a haitus from work. Typically, sabbaticals are taken to fufill a career-related goal like intensive research or writing a book.

Do you have any goals that would require taking a sabbatical in the future?
