One third of job seekers believe that their career is based around their star sign, according to research.
Over 30 per cent of those polled by recruiters Pertemps feel that their star signs are suited to different careers and 6 per cent had actually visited an astrologer.
Forty-two per cent felt that astrology could help companies understand the causes of stress and how it affects different people.
“Astrology can help individuals decide if they will like a particular job or fit in with company’s culture. It can see if a person thrives on pressure or if distractions and deadlines lead to stress,” commented astrologer Carolynn Townsend on the findings.
She added, “It can indicate if an employee needs approval and praise to flourish in their work, if they are natural leaders or shy away from responsibility.”
Just under 300 job seekers were surveyed.
