Over the years, I have had several jobs, but I have only had one career.
A job is something you do to earn money. A career is the culmination of several jobs over a period of time.
The Meriam-Webster definition of a job:
the work that a person does regularly in order to earn money
and the Meriam-Webster definition of a career:
a job or profession that someone does for a long time
a period of time spent in a job or profession
So, there you go. A job is part of the whole in a career. So far I have been fortunate enough to have a very successful career, and I don’t see myself switching to another career.
Readers, how many careers have you had? Would you change careers if you could? Let me know in the comments!
