To the concept of 'job' It is attributed more than one meaning. From a perspective, it can be understood as the action and the effect of generating work and offering jobs . As you know, using is a verb that refers to the fact that keep an individual busy (either by requesting a service or hiring it for a certain remunerated function), invest money in a purchase or simply use something .
On the other hand, the word is used to mention a occupation or job . In that sense, it is usually used as a synonym for job .
For thousands of years, the way that linked people through work was the slavery . It was an unfair situation associated with property, where the worker was a slave who had become someone's property: his master. The owner could use the slave or sell it according to his will and, of course, appropriate the fruit of his work.
At the beginning of XIX century , slavery lost strength in a framework marked by the advance of syndicalism and of the democracy .
At present, the most widespread form of employment worldwide is the salaried work (in dependency relationship). The employee or worker establishes a contract with your employer, which sets the value for which the labor force will be sold and the conditions under which the employment will be provided. The price of labor is known as salary or remuneration , and can be paid daily (wage ), biweekly (fortnight ) or monthly (salary ).
In this sense we have to say that the global crisis that is taking place in recent years has led to the word that concerns us "found in the mouth" of all citizens because many are those who have lost their jobs because of the same. Hence, they have seen the need to carry out the use of various job search tools.
Among them we could mention the cover letters or the usual curriculum vitae. However, the rise of the Internet has enabled the use of this network to find a job. In this specific case, the way to achieve this objective is to use from the specific employment portals to the websites of the companies through social networks.
Some of the latter spaces in which the candidate in question discloses their data, their professional experience and their academic qualifications in order to “sell themselves” as a true expert in a specific subject. And it is that social networks not only act as a "perfect showcase of promotion" but also provide the possibility to the person in question to be able to directly contact companies and people who can facilitate a job.
Thus, among the most specific social networks, professionally speaking, we find Linkedin, Xing or Viadeo. In any of them, and as long as the profile is kept up to date, a job can be obtained with which to achieve the necessary economic stability.
Other forms of employment currently in existence are the I work on my own accord (self-employed or self-employed) and the informal work in dependency relationship (also known as unregistered or black work).
