    Around vs in the office

    Hi,

    Could someone tell me what is the difference between 'around the office' and 'in the office'?

    E.g.

    1. What to notice around the office when you go for a job interview.
    2. 12 things not to say around the office.
    3. I am just helping out in the office.

    Thanks

    Re: Around vs in the office

    1 & 2 are thinking about the physical space. The third is thinking about the office as a place of work, not focusing on the walls, etc, as in the first, or the people, at their desks, the water-cooler or in the corridor.
