    Smile settle on

    Scientists seached for a site for years before settling on Sierra Negra.


    Based on the usage of settling on in this sentence, could I make the following one:

    I didn't know exactly why I settled on teaching as my job.

    Thanks.

    Yes, you would be correct in using it that way.
