    "I really appreciate your help getting me this job."

    "I really appreciate your help getting me this job."

    I saw the sentence in a movie and I was wondering if help is equal to getting me this job.

    Thank you so much as always and have a good day.

    c.f The organization offers practical help (in) dealing with paperwork. In the sentence, I know help cannot be equal to dealing with paperwork, considering meaning.

    I don't understand your question. There is no 'equality' here. You helped me get the job, and I am thanking you.
