A job is a regular and official activity that you do,
and receive money (a salary) for your activity. It is
also called a profession or an occupation.
You can have a full-time job (40 hours per week) or
a part-time job (around 25 hours per week).
When someone is looking for a job, this is
sometimes called the “job hunt” or “job search.”
The process of trying to get a specific job – when
you send your resume or CV to a company – is
called applying for a job.
