Let me start out by saying, I really like my job.
But it’s hard to be away from B for 9+ hours a day, counting my commute. So sometimes I find myself wondering, Where is that Perfect Job for me?
The one that’s a career, not just a job.
Flexible hours, but generally 9-5.
Preferably there’s a daycare onsite.
They pay me what I think I deserve to get paid. Plus awesome benefits (including dental and vision) for me and my whole family. Plus a retirement package.
There’s the possibility of advancement.
It’s something I enjoy doing, ideally in the arts. It is both challenging and satisfying on a daily basis.
Casual dress code, friendly work environment, fun coworkers.
A boss who’s also a mentor.
Maybe I can work from home some of the time.
I guess as long as I’m reaching for the stars, some Google-style cafeterias offering free lunches wouldn’t be so bad. And maybe, like, an on-site gym? I guess it’d be cool if they issued me an iPad too. And paid for my personal phone? Which I use for work stuff occasionally.
So if anyone hears of a job like this, ideal for a San Francisco-based almost-30-year-old with an English degree, could you let me know?
