As a software engineer, is a feasible plan to alternate two years of working with one year of sabbatical? I was thinking about the possibility to change companies each time rather than staying in the same company.
Soon (the next year) I'll get a M.Sc. in Computer Science. For a software enginner is quite easy to get a job, and thus is also easy to switch jobs, but my doubt is if companies, HR departments and managers see this type of alternation as a negative factor, possibly making me a less attractive candidate.
The rationale behind this choice would be the fact that a prolonged pause permits to spend more time studying humanities and professional subject, leading to a greater personal growth as a professional and as a human being.
What's your opinion based on a similar choice made by you or by a colleague of yours, or based on your experience as a hiring manager?
