Yes, unfortunately it is more an 'employer's market' these days, more than a job market favoring the employee. Taking a job that we do *not* love or are passionate about will more quickly drain us. To keep energy up for a job long term it needs to be something that energizes us, more than drain. We can do a more draining job for the short term, and then will need to recover in some way, either by taking a long break from it (longer than the usual vacation), or change to a job we enjoy more. I have a hub that explains more, if you are interested: Find a Career Job You Really Want.
