If you’re unsure what new skills you should be looking to develop, ask people in your chosen career field that you respect and admire what they would recommend. Seventy-five percent of people who ask for a raise get some kind of pay increase, according to PayScale’s Salary Negotiation Guide , so it’s worth your time to figure out the right strategy.

Now, it might be clear, that a job is very different from the career. There can be some jobs in a person’s career. We can also say that there is onlyÂ one career in a person’s life that incorporates all the jobs. A career is what you see yourself in the future. A job takes your time, provides you with some work and penny. However, a career not only gives you money but also opportunities to do what you love as well as satisfaction. One basic differenceÂ between job and career is that job is what you are doing at present, but career is what you have done so far and what you are going to do next.
