Here at Rhinebeck Bank we have an array of entry level positions. When we interview for these openings, many candidates state that they are “looking for a career, not just a job.” What does that mean? What is the difference between getting a job, and beginning a career? There may be no way to tell exactly what each candidate means when they say this. After all, it very well may mean something different to each person.
When applicants make this distinction to me, as a manager and Human Resources professional, I come to a few assumptions about their work ethic and personality. Here is what the “looking for a career” statement means to me as an employer:
A career requires you to make a personal investment. You are the only person accountable for the energy and commitment you put into your professional growth. In a career, you need to set your goals and work hard to achieve them, essentially making your road to success a journey and not a grind.
