Job Seekers, What’s Your Sign?

Sure, you’ve probably seen or heard about career resources listing job titles by personality type. From personal experience, I can agree that these lists can be quite helpful and accurate in directing us job seekers in the right direction. But have you ever considered how your astrological sign or birth order could be correlated with your career?

A study conducted two years ago by CareerBuilder shows that yes, there are distinct differences in career type and success when you categorize people by their sign or their birth order. The study found patterns regarding salary, profession, and position type between the different groups. Check out the CareerBuilder article for yourself, or read about the study’s key findings below:
