Are you looking for a job or a career?

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines career as a “profession for which one trains and which is undertaken as a permanent calling.” Qualities that people find most important in a career are not always what you think (i.e. pay and benefits) but the intangible items like making a positive contribution, helping others, and being a part of an amazing team.
