There is a difference between working a job (vocation); and working in your area of purpose or passion;
Your area of purpose is usually something you care deeply about, enough to make a notable difference. This passion keeps you motivated and driven against all odds.

However, working at a job can be your path to get to your area of passion. Therefore your job is still beneficial if you have a plan of direction.
In seeking to get into work, it is vital to identify what your strengths and passions are.
