Difference Between Career and a Job

Career Versus JobAs a noun, the word “career” indicates a profession done over a great period of time with development opportunities. The other noun called “job” is about irregular or regular work that is paid.

So how can you tell if you are working in a job or developing a career? The answer lies in the final destination of where you’ll head when working.

Perhaps you have worked in temporary or possibly permanent positions such as a waiter in a restaurant, a telemarketer in a call center or even a freelance writer for a publication and so on. If these positions don’t lead you to a future goal ahead, they are simply just “jobs” that you work in exchange for a sum of money for that period of time.

On the other hand, if working in these positions can help you develop a future vision of yourself, then those various jobs that you do will build you for a career.

A job doesn’t build you towards a future goal ahead. A career does.
