What is the difference between securing a job and getting a job?

From the research carry out in among the job seekers in Abuja, Nigeria, it shown that over 90% of job seekers in Abuja and some other part of the country’s focus is how to getting a job and less than a 10% don’t just aimed at getting a job but focusing on how to their job after getting it.

Let quickly see the difference between the verbs “Get” and “Secure” though both can be used interchangeably when expressing oneself.

Get is very general in its meaning and simple and familiar in its use. Thus, one may get something by searching, by fetching, by extracting, by receiving, or as a return. It may suggest that the thing sought has been long desired or that it has come into possession only after the expenditure of considerable effort or the lapse of considerable time.

 Secure may suggest safe lasting possession or control or it may suggest the gaining of what is hard to come by (as by reason of rarity or competition for possession); thus, one secures, rather than gets or acquires, a rare stamp by offering a higher price than other interested persons will pay.

Securing a job means

  • Protecting from attack or danger; protect
  • Doing very thing possible to avoid anxiety or doubt; unafraid
  • Firm and not likely to fail; stable or confident
  • Free from the risk of loss; reliable.
