Are you chasing your dream job? Lots of people are. And it’s fine to have a dream, but the reality is much harsher. Settling can be the better choice. Here are eight reasons why.

- Unemployed people have a harder time finding a job than employed people. If you’re currently unemployed and are holding out for the dream job–even if you’ve got a trust fund–you’re making it harder and harder to get a good job with every passing day.

Sure, you thought you wanted to be a sky diving instructor, but it’s only after you got the job that you find out that 50 percent of your job is talking people into jumping out of the plane after they are already in the air.
