    Cool job/work

    Hello!!

    Which is the right expression: "I don't feel good about my work" or "I don't feel good about my job"?

    Thanks a lot

    They are both OK.

    I think they have slightly different meanings. You might like your job, but not feel good about the specific work you do while you're there (perhaps you're disappointed with your performance).

    If you don't feel good about your job, then that refers to the whole job, all aspects of it.

    Yes, as always, it depends on context.
