Both are correct in the right context, and each is better than the other in that context. In your context, emsr2d2 has given you alternatives. Here's an example of a correct use of 'of':

'I am a teacher. I am not going to go to an interview for the job of a lavatory attendant just because JobCentrePlus is a gross misnomer.' ;-)
