    Work & Job

    Should I say:

    "in my previous work" or "in my previous job"?

    "during my work/job"?

    "It's my work" or "It's my job"?

    Re: Work & Job

    In my previous job/In my previous employment/In my previous post

    It is my work = generically what I do to earn a living >> I am involved in educating secondary level students. It is my work.
    It is my job = the specific thing I do in order to earn a living >> I am a teacher. It is my job.

    "During my job" - you would need to identify the context of use.
