Do You Have a Job or a Career?

Recent graduates are likely to take the first job that gets thrown their way with a quip of, “Well I’m lucky to even have a job!” A few months later, you might find yourself questioning if you made the right career choice.  So what is the difference between a job and a career? The article, “Is Your Job Really a Career?,” by Alex Keckes outlines the basics to deciphering this question. 

A Job:

·         What you had when you were going to school

·         There is no “career path” or next level to advance

·         Little to no passion is involved

A Career

·         Defined as gainful employment

·         The opportunity exists to build and sharpen your skill set and unique talents

·         You have passion for your everyday work

·         Can get you where you want to be in 5 to 10 years
