CAREER VS JOB WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion. When going into a business or working plan, we need to know what we have to do, what we want to do and what we are to do. Choosing a Career line or Job can sometimes be quite controversial. We therefore need a guide on knowing how to go about engaging in a career or Job.
What is the difference between a career and a job?
Not all careers have a single unifying theme. Some careers are homogeneous, but many are not. I think that for most people — whether they’re on a traditional career path or not — a job is just a way to earn money. There are people who love their work, but even then not all of them are in a career. For most people, work is simply a necessary evil.
A job is something you do simply to earn money; a career is a series of connected employment opportunities.
A job has minimal impact on your future work life, while a career provides experience and learning to fuel your future.
A job offers few networking opportunities, but a career is loaded with them.
When you work at a job, you should do the minimum without annoying the boss. When you’re in a career, you should go the extra mile, doing tasks beyond your minimum job description.
So what’s the difference between a career and a job? I don’t believe there is one. A career is simply a lifetime of jobs, whether those jobs are related or not. And while it’s important to focus on your future goals, it’s even more important to focus on doing the best you can right now at your current job.
