    "seek a job" - is it correct?

    Hi all.

    This year I'm having the Polish "matura" exam and I've recently had a probationary exam. As one of the parts, we have to write an essay, a short story, or a description. The subject of the essay was: "Nowadays many people decide to work abroad. Write a pros and cons essay about advantages and disadvantages of the issue". Writing the work I used a term "seek a job" and now I'm not sure if it is a correct way to express the term. I've been looking up in dictionaries, but I haven't found the answer. (Sorry for my English, it is not perfect, I know, but I'm trying my best ;))

    Welcome to the forums, mat-bi.

    The term 'seek a job' is fine and will bring welcome variety to terms you will be using a lot in that essay, such as 'look for work', 'try to find employment', 'look for a position' etc.
