You've probably heard this advice before. Maybe you've even given it to someone. But is it actually GOOD career advice?
We always tell young people to "follow their passion" . . . meaning find something you love, not something that'll just pay well. So is it good career advice or not? Most Americans still say YES.
59% of adults say it's usually good advice . . . and only 18% said it's bad advice. The other 24% aren't sure.
We were curious what older people thought, since they've got more life experience. But it holds steady across most demographics.
59% of people 55 and up think it's good advice too.
Men and people under 35 were a little more likely to say it's bad advice.
