The Difference Between a Job and Career

Many individuals are curious about the difference between a job and a career.


So below are the lists of the difference to enlighten you as an individual curious of the difference.


What is a JOB?
1. A job is just something you do to earn for a living. Career advancement is not something you are interested in. In five year, you’ll likely not be doing anything like your current job.


2. A position has a minimal impact on future resumes and job applications because it is entirely unrelated to the stuff you will be applying.


3. A job is just there to put some easy cash in your pocket.


4. A job offers very few networking opportunities; because the people at a job are not people, you’ll likely know at a future post.


What is a CAREER?


1. A career is a series of connected employment opportunities, where you build up skills at earlier employment opportunities to move you into a higher paying and higher prestige employment opportunities later on. And in five years, you are planning to be something very similar to what you are doing now, but hopefully with more income and more interesting problems to tackle.


2. A career is a series of heavily related jobs that will always be used on future application and resumes.


3. A career provides the backbone of experiences and learning that will fuel your professional life for years, if not your entire life.


4. A career is loaded with networking opportunities, as most of the people around you are involved in similar careers to yours and they will keep popping up time and time again.
Know to go in whether or not this employment opportunity us a job or a career, ask yourself whether you hope to be promoted at some point or you need to collect a paycheck. If you need a paycheck, only do not become emotionally involved at all. Do the tasks you are told and conserve your emotional and mental energy for the other pieces of your life.


If you are hoping that this employment opportunity will push you on to other things, then turn on the passions. Figuring this out right off the bat can save you a ton of investment in a job. Save that investment for your family, your love or your career.

Tamra, I think your last paragraph is really important - the difference is passion. Passion is the motivation that keeps one going even when the challenges seem insurmountable. And passion is the greatest source of joy.

Good morning Tamra. Some companies force those seeking a career into only a job these days. The lucky ones move on! Enjoy your day!
