    I am giving you the best possible example so that you can resolve your confusion.

    Suppose you are working in a car manufacturing company as a mechanical Engineer trainee and now your major job is to assist your juniors in technical work by taking help from your seniors. In this case the job is the whole work that you do including assisting the juniors, learning from seniors, Maintaining records, troubleshooting problems and maintaining your juniors. As these are the part of your job so in total this all will be considered as your job for which you get paid.

    Position :- You working as a Mechanical engineer is your position in the company. Position usually increase with the experience.

    Job description :- JOB DESCRIPTION is the detail structure made for you in which you will be told you duties and responsibilities and rules and the way you have to do it.

    Job Profile :- It is equivalent to JD. In contains, Tasks, Duties, responsibilities and the expectation that the company have from you.

    Hope it will help
