looking for a job

I hear folks say “Man! I just want a job!” and are surprised when the “job” they get doesn’t satisfy them they way they had imagined it would. So, would you now say you’re looking for a “career”? There is a difference.

What is it? A career is the pursuit of a lifelong ambition or the general course of progression towards lifelong goals. A job is an activity through which an individual can earn money. It is a regular activity in exchange of payment.
Requirements Usually requires special learning that includes individualized components that develop abilities beyond that which training is capable of.  Education or Special training may or may not be required
Risk taking A career may not mean stability of work as it encourages one to take risks. The risks are often internal and therefore planned.  A job is “safe”, as stability of work and income is there.  However shifting priorities, especially in resource jobs, can abruptly change the demand and require relocation which is an unstable factor. Risks may be completely external.
Time Long term Short term


Now, let me ask, do you want a job or a career? It’s up to you and the work you put into either one. Get started today so you know where you’ll be tomorrow…and good luck!
