Many young people today are eager to have a job. They ask to senior and those who are working whether they can have a job. Even some of my friends ask me ‘Do you find any job vacancy for me?’ I helped them got the job before. But after I know the difference between job and job opportunity, I helped them to get the opportunity only. Do you know why?
The Job and job opportunity are very different. Job is a kind of work which generate income as much as you work. There is no way for you to raise your horizon. As you work for the company which gives you a job, then you earn the salary. Then your skill, quality, position, salary and life quality never get changed. It is called job. The job opportunity is a kind of work which not only generates income but also expands your horizon – meaning your skill, quality, career, position, salary and life quality get raised from time to time as long as you are trying. A job opportunity, where you can work and you can learn, is much better than a job.
You need to think carefully when choosing a career and choosing a company to work. Let we say that there are two companies: one is giving you a job with high salary; one is giving you an opportunity, but with low salary. What will you choose? You salary and everything will stuck in the same place if you chosen the job. But your current low salary and everything will get raised higher and higher in the future as long as you are trying hard. Trying means you are working and learning. If you found that the company is not giving you any opportunity, you don’t need to hesitate to leave. Comfort zone is killing you. Be a smart opportunity seeker!
