Most people don’t choose jobs based on job descriptions, but recommendations.
People skills will play an important part in your life no matter what career you’ll be in.
People will always typecast who according to their understanding. It’s much better to select a career that you like, and that is not a decision made according to others’ judgements or expectations.
