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
what are your aspirations are you working towards a promotion or did you
recently receive a promotion let me know and we'll have a good old chinwag down
in the comments until next time if you have a few minutes then why not join us
in the next lesson otherwise take care and I'll see you soon hopefully
