Top Definition
A form of employment which pays well enough that the employee is mostly if not completely fiscally self-sufficient.

A real grownup job often but not necessarily requires postsecondary education and a 40+ hour work week. It may or may not involve working in an office, and may or may not be enjoyable or fulfilling. The primary qualification is that the job pays well enough for a responsible adult to live in a reasonably modest but comfortable manner with little or no outside help, be it in the form of a second job, trust fund or other form of mooching.
