    Get vs Become // Get vs have

    Is there any difference in meaning between these two sentences:

    1- When you learn you become better.

    2- When you learn you get better.

    And between these one:

    3- I have a new job.

    4- I get a new job.

    The first two mean about the same thing. The second two are radically different. ("I have a new job" means a person has acquired a new source of employment. "I get a new job" might mean something in the right context.)
