The Difference Between a Career and a Job
Posted Tuesday, Apr 13, 2010 by
Many workers will have numerous jobs over a lifetime. It’s no longer necessarily considered a bad thing to change jobs every several years. In fact, it’s often seen as a positive thing. A common industry term refers to the practice as “cross pollination.” However, this doesn’t imply that you anyone should simply attempt to go from job to job to make your resume look good.
An activity regularly performed in exchange for some method of payment. It’s also considered to be an activity or position where an individual is currently employed.
A career is often seen as a chosen pursuit; a gainful occupation of one’s calling. A career may be best described as a progression of a person’s working life along with the professional achievements.
Your job is what you’re paid to do today. Your career is an accumulation of what you’ve done in the past and what you hope to do and accomplish in the future. Thinking “career” means thinking long-term.
And when you think long-term, you’ll hopefully begin to realize the following:
- Everything you do in life should count
- Make sure you do things for a good reason
- Make the best decisions
- Always think in terms of what the next step will be
- Understand the things you do today will determine tomorrow’s outcome
