Jobs versus Careers: Where does the beauty industry fit?

career versus jobs

Why it matters…

Your goals and values will help you decide whether you want to pursue a job versus a career. But first, let’s clarify the difference.

Job vs. Career vs. Occupation

An occupation is a group of similar jobs that require some type of training and the continuous development of your skills and knowledge in order to remain current in the field. An occupation is a specific category of work; examples of occupations in the beauty industry include Estheticians, Hairstylists, and Nail Technicians. People can have different kinds of jobs within the respective occupations; for example, Hairstylists can choose to specialize in specific skills within their position, such as cutting vs. colouring.

A job is a particular position you hold doing specific duties. In the beauty industry, if the occupation is Laser Tech, an example of a job is all the duties you would provide at any particular spa, for example, providing IPL/Laser treatments, product sales, customer service, sanitation duties, and any other duties you may agree to when you accept any given job.

A career is the sum of all work activities. You can think of it like a portfolio of all the efforts you make that are related to field you work in, in our case, the beauty industry. In addition to the work activities you achieve, also included are any activities that you do at home, at school, in your community, etc.

Is Bullying affecting your Workplace?

Is Bullying affecting your Workplace?

Society has come along way in terms of acceptance and awareness. These are two different but equally important terms. Acceptance can be defined as a person’s agreement or approval to the reality of a situation without attempting to change it. Awareness is knowledge or perception of a situation or fact. Whether it be gender, race, religion, disabilities or sexual orientation, all people are entitled to equal rights and respect.

Bullying is a huge issue that is being recognized and addressed worldwide whether it be verbal, physical or cyber. There is a certain stigma that adults are not a target of bullying, maybe a preconceived notion that unless you are under the age of 18 you should be able to “brush off,” “get over” or “have thicker skin” towards unkind acts or words aimed at you.

The truth is there are no limitations or age requirements as to who is a victim of bullying. It is important to be able to recognize what bullying is and the negative effect it can have on the team and the business as a whole. If you see bullying in the workplace, it is your responsibility to do your part in contributing to a healthy workplace. Here are some tips from Alberta Learning Information Services on how to identify, address and resolve any bullying.

There are laws to protect employees from bullying. Take a look at our Employment Regulations Contact List to know different laws created for your protection.
