1 min read

Tired of trudging across the parking lot to your cubicle every day? Fed up with working on your pet projects under cover of night? Have you been thinking about going back to law school? Then take a look at our ”Dreams Jobs” stories in this issue. As the 10 technologists we found for this year’s report make clear, it’s more than possible to combine engineering with a wealth of other life interests and passions.

But then again perhaps you already have a dream job or know someone who does. If that’s the case, then tell us about it by dropping us a note at spectrum@ieee.org .
