This is how I sign job. It is called a LEXICALIZED sign. This is a sign that started as fingerspelling and had turned into it's own specific sign. This sign is used for JOB. WORK had is own sign which is also in the video above. Both of the signs you're seeing on the websites are the lexicalized version of job and both are correct.

    • Thank you!!  I will definitely check this out!
    • Hi. I am also new to this site as well. I am from Michigan. ASL recently spark my interest in wanting to learn more. Learning from downloadable apps help me out a bit. However, I feel like that isn't quite enough to further my learning. I'm planning on going back to school to major in ASL. For a newbie in wanting to learn ASL, what are some suggestions, advice, and ideas I should follow up on. 
    • It may work, Emily! What time (Pacific) are you available to practice? My husband works 2nd shift for the time being, so I'm available until about 7pm Pacific time!
    • Hello there, fellow ASL enthusiasts! I am currently taking ASL 1 in college, and would love a study buddy. There aren't many close by deaf communities, and am looking to apply the knowledge I learn. Would anyone be interested? I am on the Pacific Time Zone if that helps.
