Difference between Job and Work

Hi there,
 
I’m Harry and welcome to English in a Minute brought to you by englishlessonviaskype.com
 
Today we want to talk to you about the words job and work. And how they are the same but also how they are different. And how we use them so we look at them in terms of their synonymous features.
 
They can be both used as nouns.
Job as a noun and work as a noun.
 
I love my job.
I love my work.
 
Exactly the same.
 
I am looking for work.
I’m looking for a job.
 
Exactly the same.
 
The work is done.
The job is done.
 
Exactly the same.
 
The work is finished.
The job is finished.
 
Exactly the same.
 
So we can see here as a noun they are exactly the same.
 
However, when we want to use work as a verb, which it is to work.
 
We can’t use job as a verb.
 
We can’t say to job
 
Ok. So we can only say:
 
I have to work today.
I have to work tomorrow.
I have to work next week.
 
But we can’t say:
 
I have to job today.
I have to job tomorrow.
I have to job next week.
 
Job is only a noun.
 
So they are similar when we use them as nouns.
 
But when we’re using as a verb, we can only use to work.
Ok.
