Job creep

Job creep is when a person’s job starts extending into that persons leisure time. An example of job creep is someone doing work at home after working hours are over, during weekends or when on vacation. This phenomenon is often aggravated by new technologies like cell phones, smart phones and the internet.

A job is a regular activity performed in exchange for payment, usually as one's occupation. A person usually begins a job by becoming an employee, volunteering, or starting a business. If a person is trained for a certain type of job, they may have a profession. The series of jobs a person holds in their life is their career.

Getting a first job is an important rite of passage in many cultures. Youth may start by doing household work, odd jobs, or working for a family business. In many countries, school children get summer jobs during their longer vacation period. Students enrolled in higher education can apply for internships.

Resumes are used to summarize information about a person in order to interest potential employers and get a job interview. Industrialization involves machines taking on a role in producing goods without direct operation by a person.
