Hi,

(1)"You should not seek only an English-related job.

(2)"You should not aspire to an English-related job.

(3)"You should not settle for an English-related job.

(4)"You should not focus on an English-related job.

(5)"You should not adhere to an English-related job.

(6)"You should not hanker after an English-related job.

In the above 6 examples, which one most strongly urges the person
to give up an English-related job? First, please clarify your meaning. 'To give up a job' suggests that you have it and you quit. Is that what you mean, that the person currently has such a job?


Also, which one most mildly recommends the person to move away from an English job? What do you mean by 'move away'? Do you mean 'quit, resign your current job'?

Best wishes, Clive
