Career

The job or sequence of jobs a person has in his/her chosen field. A career may or may not involve multiple jobs, but it generally remains in the same field of expertise. Traditionally, one receives the necessary education or training to start a career, takes an entry-level job, and gradually receives increasingly greater responsibility (and higher pay). However, many people do not follow the traditional career path, notably entrepreneurs who take responsibility on to themselves. Additionally, some people have two or more careers throughout their life as they move, by will or necessity, into different fields.
