Prepositions in English can be troublesome and confusing. For today’s English lesson I want to show you some prepositions that come after the verb work.

Here are the example sentences

We use work at followed by a place or a task:

  • Jack works at a bank downtown.
  • The boss was working at his desk all day.
  • I had a problem with my computer and I was working at it for a few hours until it was solved.

We use work for followed by a company, a cause or a person:

  • Jack works for NYC Finance downtown.
  • Jenny has been working for animal rights all her life.
  • Teddy used to work for Jack Welch.

We use work in followed by a field or industry:

  • Jack works in finance.
  • I’ve been working in international education for more than 20 years.

We use work on followed by a task:
Jack works on finance reports for the bank.
I was working on my lessons all morning.

We use work with followed by a body part, a tool or a person:
Jack works with a computer and a financial calculator.

  • I worked with Greg and Nobi in my previous job.
  • Freddy is a plumber, so he works with his hands.

By the way, work out is also phrasal verb, which means exercise:

  • Danny works out at the health club on 53rd Street.
  • I need to start working out, but it is so difficult to get started!
