RIP to the 9 to 5 work day. Kathryn Minshew (CEO of career directory platform The Muse) is pro-unlimited vacation time and offers her employees a 1-month paid sabbatical after five years. How can we all live this dream?
A good vacation can’t be beat. Whether you’re heading to the beach, the top of a mountain, or a buzzing metropolis, it is one of the best things you can do for yourself culturally, mentally and physiologically. So why aren’t Americans packing their bags?
Kathryn Minshew is the founder and CEO of The Muse, a career discovery platform that has helped over 15 million people answer the question: "What do I want to do with my life?"
Prior to founding the company, Kathryn worked on vaccine introduction in Rwanda and Malawi with the Clinton Health Access Initiative and previously worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company. She's appeared on CNN, Fast Company, PBS, Forbes' 30-Under-30 in Media and INC's 15 Women to Watch in Tech. When not at work, Kathryn is an avid globetrotter and an adventurous cook.
