Incorrect spelling, explanation:
carrear not only looks weird but also proposes a different pronunciation than the correct version career. Currently, the double r from the original French carriere is no longer pronounced as double. The change of ie to ee is also much more natural than a change from ie to ea.
Correct spelling, explanation: the origin of the word career comes from the French carriere. Over time the vowels changed in the spelling, and the ee stayed to signify the long i sound. The double r also became useless, as it was simply not pronounced the same way as the French original.
Definition of career:
1. A job or an occupation, usually a serious one somebody links their future to
