This is how you can tell if you’re working a job or building a career

May 25 2018, 12:29 am

There’s a massive difference between a job and a career. One is something you do to earn money and get by in the world, while the other is something you can build a future and an identity around.

If you’re feeling stressed or bored in your current role, chances are you’ve got stuck in a “job,” and it’s not where you want to be.

When you’re working a job you’re unhappy with, that sense of stress and disappointment bleeds through your entire life. Meanwhile, people chasing a career feel happy about the work that they’ve done and optimistic about future projects.

Feeling like you’re constantly grinding and wondering when you’ll ever get out of your current role is no way to live. And if Mondays are something you dread due to the mere thought of another week at your job, this is a good indicator that you need a change. Because when you’ve got a career you love, you’re fuelled with passion as you look forward to new tasks and growing with your team.

If you haven’t got that yet, don’t fret; we’ve got you. Your dream career is waiting for you at Canada’s second fastest-growing consumer services company: CareGuide. If you’re ambitious and patient, this could be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

This Toronto-based company is a family of online services from house sitting, to elder care, pet sitting, housekeeping, nanny services, and more. How it works: its simple mission is to pair families and individuals with exceptional care providers, ultimately saving them time otherwise spent searching through classified websites.

To give you an idea of how fast CareGuide is growing, the company is adding more than 250,000 users each month and driving over 3.5 million visits.

If you dream about working at an organization where you’re intellectually challenged and stimulated on a daily basis, this is the place for you. Because when you’re passionate and your values are aligned with those of the company you’re working for, you can embrace long-term career growth.

Co-op student Ali Dinani did exactly that at CareGuide. He even growth-hacked the company into new funding. It’s the kind of company that lets you take the reins when you’ve got a great idea.


CareGuide is passionate about diversity, and it’s now hiring for its marketing and engineering teams. So, if you’re a university grad or looking to switch things up and work for a vibrant, expanding tech company, you can search the current openings and apply via AngelList.

To-date, the consumer services firm has raised over $11 million from the most robust investor group in Canadian history, from both Canadian and US-based VCs. CareGuide has been tripling its core business year-over-year.

Plus, the CareGuide HQ also has an amazing rooftop where you can enjoy your lunch — now that’s a perk with a view.
