Newsweek article The difference between job and career?
Newsweek has a few questions for job seekers.
Are you in a career or a job?
Job seekers often have different expectations.
“A career is where you are working and living and working and working,” said David Zuckerman, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Southern California.
“That’s a long-term, high-paying job.”
Are there perks?
Career seekers may not have the luxury of a free meal at a restaurant or a trip to Disneyland.
But Zuckman said many job seekers do enjoy a paid vacation or vacation days, the opportunity to stay home and do other things.
Can I still get a job if I leave?
If you are a full-time job seeker, you may still get paid work.
You must apply for a job, but if you leave the position and then come back, your previous employer can pay you less than you would have gotten if you stayed.
For example, if you left a job at a retail company and then started at an electronics company, you could get $30 a week instead of $50 a week, said Mark Lissauer, a senior vice president at the CareerBuilder Inc. and an adjunct professor at the Kellogg School of Management.
What if I get laid off?
You can still keep working, Zuckerman said.
But you may have to take a pay cut or go on a temporary or temporary-part-time basis.
Do I have to work full-year?
You don’t have to be a full time employee if you are unemployed.
If I don’t get a full year of pay, can I still work?
Yes, Zillman said, but you have to start somewhere.
You can work part time if you want to, but there are limits.
You may not get paid for the work you do.
A full-season job usually costs around $13,000 a year, said Zuckeman, who added that this may be the maximum the job can be paid.
If you don’t find a job in the first place, you might want to consider getting a job offer.
The good news is, you can get a much better job at less than the amount you were getting at your previous job.
If you decide to go to college, you’ll get a better education than you otherwise would, and you’ll be able to earn more money.
If your current employer offers you a full job, you’re likely to get one as well.
