Due to current decreased job opportunities, especially entry-level positions, jobseekers should reconsider giving priority to their personal interests, when it comes to choosing a job. Of course, personal interest is important in determining what your eventual occupational direction will be, but if you’re striking out for the first time, it should be kept as your last priority, since entry-level jobseekers have no work experience. It’s always better to match your skills to your job, rather than matching your interest to the job. If you have a few job opportunities at hand, then personal interest can be one of your options in helping you make your final choice. Otherwise, try not to place your personal interest as your main criterion for finding a job.
