Between the end of your training and the beginning of your career, there’s a gap.
Some of us take on 3 jobs to get through college and wind up finding a career. Some of us carpe diem a gap year. Some of us take a decade after high school and become Alaskan sea fisher-people.
But all of us feel the distance between what we’re doing and what we want to be doing.
