A career can be mapped out like a journey. Sometimes, people purposefully set out to go down a certain path. While others, when looking back, are often surprised how different jobs and interests led them to build a career.
While a "job" is more temporary -- or should be. It's really about exchanging your time for a paycheck from a company. There's little reward beyond that.
But people often confuse the two. They stay in jobs too long, trying to turn it into a career. Or they pursue a career path but work at it like it's a job -- they don't try to learn new skills and focus only on what they are responsible for.
