+1 for having the same take with me :)

I think a "job" (in a jobflow) is a part of a "work" in a "workflow".

I usually assume that job is small and we can break it down and that
job is a little bigger or equivelent to a "task" (the smallest work
unit in a work breakdown structure)

When I write "jobflow", I mean that it is different from "job flow"
