Jeff Jung, Jeffrey Jung

Known as the ¨Career Break Travel Guy¨, I started Career Break Secrets after taking my own career break from 2007-2008. An international traveler since my first trip to Australia at the age of 16, my career break made me a true citizen of the world. I left a crazy consulting turned corporate marketing career to learn Spanish fluently in South America, see magnificent sunsets and sunrises in far flung places like the Galapagos, Easter Island, Cappadocia, and the Nile River. 

I relocated to Bogota, Colombia after my career break and started Career Break Secrets to inspire others and help them plan their own career break journey. In 2009, I set out to film the first season of our Video Travel guide series. I want to show people that a career break is possible, real people do it, and how to get the most out of their own journey. 

I’m encouraged and thrilled by the reception Career Break Secrets has found among travelers looking for a different way to see the world. In addition, we’ve been covered by several media outlets in TV, radio, print and online. It’s been a great ride so far and I’m hoping that you will join us as we continue to spread the word and make career breaks more common for everyone. Let’s go see the world!

By the way, here's a map of where I've been to date.
