Deciding if a job or a career is the right fit for you depends on your stage of life.Even though the two terms are often used to mean the same thing, there is a difference between having a job and having a career. 
      A career is a series of connected employment opportunities, this is where you build up skills at early employment opportunities to transfer you into higher paying and higher prestige employment opportunities later on. In the next five years, you are likely to be planning something quite similar to what you’re doing now, but hopefully with more income and more interesting problems to tackle. 
    A job has slight impact on future resumes, cv’s and job application because it is completely unrelated to the stuff you will be applying for. Whereas, with your career it is a series of heavy related jobs. These can always be used on future job applications, cv’s and resumes.
    The main alteration between a job and a career is, a job is just to put easy money in your pockets. Whereas, a career provides a backbone of experiences and learning that will fuel your professional life for years, if not your entire life. 
    A job typically offers minimal networking opportunities, this is because the people at a job are not likely going to be in your future career. A career is loaded with networking opportunities, as most of the people around you are involved in similar careers to yours and they will keep popping up time and time again.
       Find the work you enjoy. To some, a job can be tiresome, routine and not motivating, but to others it can be rewarding, educational and fun. The same goes for a career. Remember that not everyone who has a career is satisfied, but it what’s you put into it that can make all the difference.
