Level 4 Lesson 23 / Word Contractions – Part 2 / 어떻게/어떡해 – 그렇게 하세요/그러세요, 축약형
  • Thomas Osekowsky

    I have a question about something from the workbook portion of this lesson.

    The word is 직장을 구하다 is translated in the back of the workbook as “to look for a job”. It was used in the sentence “직장을 쉽게 구할 수 있어요” which was translated as “you can easily get a job.”

    However, the English phrases “get a job” and “find a job” have very different meanings, but only “find a job” was shown in the workbook as the meaning of the word. This was really confusing.

    So, does this mean that 직장을 구하다 can mean not only “to look for a job,” but also “to get a job”??

    If so, what is the difference between 직장을 얻다 and 직장을 구하다?

    Thank you!
