  • what's your job? what do you do for work? is it a temporary job or are you working

  • towards your career? As you might have guessed from those questions and from

  • the title of this video today we're going to be learning about how to speak

  • about work in British English so what's the difference between those two

  • questions I asked at the beginning? what's your job and what do you do for

  • work? how we use these two key words job and work can be quite confusing. You

  • could say I enjoy my job here we're using the word job as a noun referring

  • to the work that you do you could also say I enjoy my work using

  • the word work as a noun but work can also be used as a verb such as I work as

  • a teacher or I used to work in a shoe shop if you're looking for a new

  • position a new job you might say I'm looking for a job here you are

  • discussing a specific role you could say I'm looking for a job in environmental

  • sciences or I'm looking for a job that interests me the word work is much more

  • vague you might say I have so much work to do or work felt very long today when

  • talking about your place of work travel or timings we use the word work for

  • example I finished work early today or I traveled to work by bus this morning so

  • a job is a paid position of regular employment and work is the activity

  • involving mental and physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or

  • result something that you will do at your job

  • so job is the position and work is the activity is the doing of the job does

  • that make sense now let's move on to some work-related vocabulary that will

  • help you to confidently talk about your job the first word is career now your

  • career refers to an area that you've worked in or intend to work in for a

  • long time and you'll hopefully work your way up that career ladder for example a

  • nursing course at university might be the first step into your medical career

  • or you might work for us more newspaper and write an article that lots of people

  • read and that would be very helpful for your journalism career next word is

  • aspiration your aspiration is something that you hope to achieve so your

  • aspiration could be to become a dentist or to own a restaurant intern an intern

  • is a student or a trainee who works for little or sometimes no pay and this is

  • in order to gain work experience or to satisfy certain requirements for a

  • qualification next up we have full-time a full-time job refers to a job where

  • you work for 35 hours per week or more usually in the UK a full-time job means

  • that you work all day on Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and Friday and we

  • have time off on Saturday and Sunday or you might work part-time you might have

  • a part-time job while studying or alongside another commitment like being

  • a mum and these hours can be anything less than 35 hours per week so a

  • part-time job could be four days a week it could be three days a week it could

  • be three hours a week anything less than 35 hours is part time

  • overtime is time worked in addition to your normal working hours so if your

  • work is particularly busy at the moment you might need to work some overtime

  • shift your shift is your work period particularly for people who do not have

  • regular working hours so your shift could be 7:00 in the morning until 12:00

  • or it could be 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. as a difficult shift isn't it

  • salary a fixed annual rate of pay which is usually evenly split up into twelve

  • monthly payments each year so do you have a good salary or are you

  • disappointed with your salary okay next promotion to receive or be given a

  • promotion is to be rewarded for your good work with a new role this typically

  • involves more money and more responsibility have you had a promotion

  • recently tell me all about it in the comment section below

  • resign if you've decided that you don't enjoy your job anymore and you want to

  • finish at your place of work then you might resign by handing in your letter

  • of resignation here it is I resign you can also say handing in your notice

  • notice is a slightly more casual way of saying letter of resignation so here

  • here's my resignation or here here's my notice I'm handing in my notice I hate

  • working here I don't really dismissed or fired if you

  • did something wrong at your job and the company felt that you should no longer

  • work there you would be dismissed or fired dismissed is the formal wording

  • and fired is the more casual word that we've borrowed in recent years from

  • American English

  • hello hello hi Lucy how are you I'm fine thanks how are you I am over the moon

  • what's happened I've just been offered a new job actually what we fired from the

  • shop no I resigned why didn't you like it

  • their shifts were horrible and I have to work so much overtime so what's the new

  • job I'm going to be working full-time at a university

  • oh that's great that means you'll finally start your education career

  • exactly the salary is much higher and there were lots of opportunity for a

  • promotion Oh good luck so that's the end of today's lessons but please in the

  • comments below tell me about your job is it a full time job or a part time job
