At the time of the return, 60% of the French dream of new professional adventures (survey conducted by the consulting firm Robert Half, 2016). A desire that often emerges during the summer holidays, when time slows down: "This is an opportunity to disconnect, to take a distance from our everyday life. I make sense and if I changed jobs and if I embarked on this project that makes me dream so much, "says Jean Viard, director of research at the CNRS and specialist of free time.
