We all come from different walks of life, some fortunate than others.
We have ups and downs.

What do you think of having a job?
What makes it noble?
What makes it real?

Where does a job becomes a career to you?
Or career becomes a job to you?

Discuss.

Well I need a job to make money.

It would only be noble in any sense if you are somehow directly or indirectly benefiting the lives of others and go above and beyond to move the world closer to one with less suffering.

If I get paid it's a real job.

From the dictionary: Career: long-term or lifelong job: a job or occupation regarded as a long-term or lifelong activity
So I guess when you have a work related goal where your skills continue to build upon one another to do more and more. For example, I started my career as an Engineer/Draftsman/Translator a few years ago. I spend professional benefit time working on my drafting, engineering and English/Spanish translation. When I move between jobs I focus on going to the "next level" with my skills.

A job lacks that related skills building on one another, nothing wrong with that though, we all have bills to pay

I only have a job is because I need money and Ii have something to do.
I have to skip the noble part.
Makes it real is when your doing something in your life..
I think career is when you come in every day loving your job.
I don't see my career as my job. Unless you hate it

It's nice to be a volunteer and all, but you gotta pay the bills.

Often the job is a means to an end. Have to pay the bills. You know most people think of soldiers and police officers because they are risking their lives for the safety and freedom of everyone (and often with questionable pay) , but in that same vein you could include schoolteachers, paramedics, nurses, social workers, therapists, doctors etc. If you give to charities or perform community service, there you go, you have a noble profession.

Becoming a Physician is both a "Noble profession" as well as a "Real Job". People need Help. I'm not in it for the Money; I already have Money. I'm in it simply because I want to help Others. So in that facing, I'd say it goes under both standards of Noble, and "Real"...
