when you're starting a new career/job/work
Lisa, I know you really want to do a good job, and that's wonderful! But when you're starting a new career/job/work/calling/vocation, you have to learn not to take things personally.
I presume all of the underlined words work with the above context, but there are slightly semantic differences, aren't there? Thanks.

You would not say " when you're starting a new work, you have to learn not to take things personally.
