The job market is ever-changing and, for a lot of people, "chasing the dream" isn't the only factor that goes into consideration when planning future careers. Passion and interest are important, of course, but many workers are also interested in things like the security and availability of their jobs. Especially if you're going to invest in an education, it's always nice to know that you can rely on your chosen career investment to eventually pay off.
