# 41

Hi everyone,

Have you ever thought about what your dream job should be?

I'm not a careerist, I don't need to exercise power over others or become a millionaire.

As for me, I think that if a job gives me the following points, I would get closer to the perfect job:

  • Have a maximum of autonomy (time, tools, decision, choice ...)
  • Build something useful for other and the planet
  • A job that gives me time off (part-time)
  • Financially viable

I think I'm lucky to work in the web industry because internet is a great environment to achieve these points. It's not easy but I know it's possible and it gives you the motivation to imagine your "perfect" job.

And you, what could be your dream job? I would be happy to hear your point of view :-)
