    Difference in meaning

    Hello I would like to know if there's a real diference between the word "career" and "course" when you talk about studies or you just use career when you have started working.
    Thanks very much.

    Re: Difference in meaning

    'Career' is associated with employment, so you may take a course because it is required for your future career, but until you start working, it's not your career.
