    I haven’t even gone to university yet. I’m starting this September and I’m already thinking about taking a year off after my 3 year sports science degree. I’m thinking of going to a couple countries and starting up a YouTube channel . But after a year off do y’all think They’d want to employ me as if I had just graduated

    A bit of life experience doesn't hurt your CV. Even if you move away from home, university isn't quite the real world.

    Taking time off to travel after university is a great time to gain perspective and life experience before starting your career, and it's best to do that while you're still young. However, some employers see it as a red flag having a year gap on your resume, and can potentially categorize that as being unemployed. But it's honestly about how you tell your story from the time abroad. For example, say you went abroad for a year, volunteered or discovered something about yourself (e.g. meeting all the people on your travels made you realize how much you love interacting with people). Once you're back from your travels, you can pursue opportunities within sales or customer success and utilize your story to share your interest in the role.
