I'd rather have a job. I don't want to have a career to tie me down.

I can see where you are coming from but you can start a family anytime but a career opportunity only comes when you are young and driven.

Jobs are short-term whereas a career is long-term. That's how I see it.

It would depend on your needs TBH. If you are living from pay check to pay check then you don't have the luxury of"building" a career.

IMO, a career involves years and often several positions. On the other hand, a job is any employment that is paid.

A job is something you do just to make a buck. A career involves a path for what you actually wanna do in the future...right?!

I agree and I agree with Roy that not everybody can afford to go after a career.

A job and a career can be one and the same. A career is something you want and a job is something that pays the bills.

I want to build my career than just having a job that pay my bills. I want to be a restaurateur.

As a single mom, I do not have the luxury of chasing my dream career. I need something that can pay the bills and get me home in time for dinner for my son.

I'd love to have a career. At least that way, my work experiences matter and I'll be heading off to better-paying jobs.
