Way back in the year 1990, when I asked my boss about career guidance, he told me a story. There are three kinds of professionals. First kind, who has meticulously chosen what he wants to do and have a thorough understanding about his career. Second, who has landed in a job and he adopted it as his career. Third, who has no idea on what’s his career all about. The success rate of these professionals follows the same order.
Successful professionals are those, who form their career at an early age and invest on the career over the years. They have a deeper understanding about their career and become an expert in it without much effort, because they continuously nurture it every day.
One need to clearly understand the difference between a career and a job. Career is a commitment for a long term probably for life that results in earnings as well, but job is just for earnings. One might have performed several jobs in his life. If he can connect these dots, then he had a career. If not, then those are all pure jobs. Both career and job will help someone to earn, but career will provide a significant growth in earnings compared to a job. A disruption in the industry may jeopardise a job, but not the career. If someone says that he lost his career, most probably he was doing a job, he mistakenly thought it as a career.
The beauty of the concept of career is that when someone pursues a career, he will be able to see the future direction of the career and navigates accordingly, build his skill sets for the changing requirements and adapts well to the industry needs. On the other hand, someone doing a job is oblivion to all such changes and everything comes to him as a surprise and he may not have much time to react. Please understand that two people performing the same role, for one it may be a career and for the other it could be a job. So, career and job are one and the same in short-term but are different in long-term.
