How Job and Career Differ?

People wonder on how job and career differ from each other. Some venture into thinking that the two are basically the same because they are both undertakings wherein a person earns money. Despite the fact that job makes a person earn some income, it, nevertheless, hardly ever entails some sort of planning. While people can apply a job at a fast food chains, only a number of them may consider such job as their career. Career, in contrast, naturally involves some underpinning or educational upbringing.

Getting a degree or diploma is generally required as preparation for a career. To have this, one must finish vocational or college. For some careers, two to eight years education is a requirement and for this time, one would go through painstaking ordeal.  People to choose to go with a vocation are often characterized as ones with firm perspectives in life. They are the ones who are persistent in making them real before the eyes of others. The life they want as well as the kind of lifestyle that they wish to lead is simply something which a job can hardly give. Furthermore, they are often singled out as individuals with higher degree of abilities, skills and talents which apart from being unique are something which cannot be benefited except in a particular career.

When a person is immersed into a certain career, he or she, most of the time, is required to allot a period of time sharpening his or her wits and skills. This is necessary in order to add a solid foundation on the chosen profession. At times, they attend to trainings and seminars to supplement their know-how. For most professions, up-to-the-minute systems or procedures are being developed from time to time. These are intended to give additional learning and to increase not only the skills but even the stature and the workingman or workingwoman’s ability to earn money. Although jobs can surely provide augmentation in income and even seasonal trainings for that matter, there is seemingly no room for advancement that is being given. And even granting with argument that there really is, the question that jobs are being concerned about is only whether a considerable degree of skill is being applied for a particular task.

As observed in many cases, only those who are on their respective careers are always drawn to bringing their best out in the open. We know for sure that when people are able to explore the depths of our skills and are able to use them, they are predisposed to developing love to the things that they do. They consider it more as their livelihood and they tend to be distinguished by this. Over time, those who have jobs are getting less contented. They often try to seek another way out to learn another skill because their true talents are not being used. They are the ones who are wishing to take other courses of action to earn a career.

I made this as my first post because I was called by the HR Department of the DSWD-Caraga just this afternoon so I can be present tomorrow for an orientation in the Region. This will certainly be a leap in my career as a Social Worker. By the way please visit our family’s GPS Cell Phones blog.
