Which one of the following sentences is correct?

  1. I think people are more concerned these days about being successful in their career.

  2. I think people are more concerned these days about being successful in their careers.

If both are correct, could you please tell me the difference between the two?

I guess that both are correct but their meaning is different:

  • The first one just mentions that they are more concerned about their job. It points out that we are talking about people's career not other things such as family life.
  • The second one also emphasizes that each person might have a different job, but all of them are more concerned. I mean, the second one tells that people are more concerned no matter what their jobs are.

Neither form is wrong, and both will be understood. It's a slight change of perspective, from talking about people in general to thinking about them as separate individuals.
