Typecast

It seems like some jobs were made for specific people, or vice versa. For any given occupation there’s a stereotypical person that fits it. I can’t help but think that a lot of progress and advancement has been lost because of that. A lot of people think they are meant for a certain occupation because of their personality or interests, and they pursue careers based on that. On the other side, employers have a vision of their ideal candidate and interview and hire based on that. Innovation is facilitated by diverse perspectives, but how do you convince the world that things don’t have to be a certain way.
