    I have just graduated and am thinking about going to somewhere like Australia for a year and doing some casual work while travelling. However, I am worried how employers will react to this when I come back. Will they be put off by my application and see my gap year as just a waste of time or will they see it as a great experience and will still be interested in hiring me? What do you think?

    They won't really care about one year. So long as you're doing something to pas the time while you're over there it shouldn't make too much of a difference
