    Great article Eric! As a headhunter for the last decade, I have met more people in ‘jobs’ that were presented as ‘careers’ during the interview process by HR or the hiring manager and that is usually when they contact me or post a resume. Is when the career position turned in to a job.

    Great post! It’s true, you want employees in your organization looking to build a career, not just punch the clock in a day job. The easiest way to do this is to look for candidates who are already looking towards the future in the interview, whether it’s in person or through online video. Make sure to ask the candidates about their own career goals, and illuminate the career path to success at your company. If candidates know there’s a way to turn their 9-to-5 into a fulfilling career, they’re be more likely to stick around and add value to your company.

    Great post, Eric! While I’m not a huge fan of Chris Rock, he hit the nail squarely on the head with his definitions of ‘career’ and ‘job’. So true.

    I lived in the Denver area for four years and your post reminded me of how much I miss Tokyo Joe’s. Good stuff. I don’t recall ever seeing their Career Path collateral, but I think it’s brilliant. If there’s one thing that successful restaurants (and most service organizations, for that matter) realize is that your customers today are potential employees tomorrow.
