Just the job

exactly what is needed
‘just the job’ is an expression that we use to describe something that is exactly what we need at a particular moment, for example, an ice cream may be just the job on a hot day, but not in the middle of winter.

‘안성맞춤’이라는 뜻

‘just the job’이라는 것은 어떤 상황에서 필요한 물건을 나타낼 때 쓰는 표현입니다. 예를 들면 더운 날에 아이스크림이‘just the job’이지만 한겨울에는 그렇지 않을 것입니다.
