Eating habits may be something you don’t really think about, but Juliet Boghossian, founder of Food-ology, spends her days studying them. Recent reports say the number of job openings compared to unemployment is looking better than ever, so maybe it’s time for you to start thinking about switching up your career. And it turns out you can look to your eating habits as a career guide. Here’s a list of the best jobs for you based on your eating habits.

1. Eating Speeds

Boghossian says eating speed reveals how one approaches life and what they value most. Slower eaters really listen to others when they’re talking. So, someone that eats slowly is a little more engaged with life. They’re balanced, they’re listening and they’re taking their time with things. On the other hand, faster eaters are more concerned with the end goal and getting things done.

2. Mixing Foods

People who mix their foods love stimuli, they love action. They need to be talking, mixing, walking around and they’re not exactly the best person to work from home. This style of eater is good at social jobs like public relations, or anything that keeps them around others. Boghossian also says those who eat foods one section at a time are more goal-oriented. They’re task-oriented, wonderful worker bees, and are great people to work from home because they’ll keep themselves on task.

3. Trying New Foods

If you’re a self-proclaimed foodie who likes to try out new things, then that means you’re open to other people’s perspectives, cultures, and are very communicative. They excel at marketing because they love to look at others’ insights.

But if you don’t like where your eating habits fit, then Boghossian says not to worry. Your food habits are a lot like your signature. They’re always changing, and you can always work on changing it by branching out the next time you go out to eat.

So next time you’re munching up on that pizza, take a closer look, your next career move might be reflected on that next slice.
