Should there be an Indefinite article in a quote "Looking for work" or that is a correct way to say it?

As I see it, it's just "the way we say it in English" is that right?


This sense of 'work' is not countable.

Work (MW, noun definition 1a)

activity that a person engages in regularly to earn a livelihood - people looking for work

Contrast that with 'job', which is countable.
