Is there such as thing as job personality? Can a job have a personality? Surely it’s people that have a personality and perhaps your cat.

It depends how you define it.

It can be useful to think of it in terms of job personality because the chemistry between you and the job is very important and it will vary according to who is taking the job.

For some people a job may be perfect for another it may be a nightmare even though nothing about the job has changed. Isn’t this just the same as two people coming together. You may get on great with one person but someone else may not.

It’s about chemistry, it’s about personality.

Explained in these terms I think it is useful to accept that there is such a thing as job personality. You can use this concept to treat job hunting a bit like dating. And unless they tick all your buttons you probably don’t want to be going there.
