Jobs and careers

What is the difference between "Job" and "Career"?

Give yourself some time to ponder over the question, and find out where the line is being drawn between JOB and CAREER.

From, a career is defined as:

1. an occupation or profession, esp. one requiring special training, followed as one's lifework: He sought a career as a lawyer.

2. a person's progress or general course of action through life or through a phase of life, as in some profession or undertaking: His career as a soldier ended with the armistice.

3. success in a profession, occupation, etc.

While a job is defined as:

1. a piece of work, esp. a specific task done as part of the routine of one's occupation or for an agreed price: She gave him the job of mowing the lawn.

2. a post of employment; full-time or part-time position: She was seeking a job as an editor.

So, what is the line drawn between a JOB and a CAREER?

Same thing for the terms " SHRIMPS" and "PRAWNS"

What is the difference?
