I have a 1 to M table join but I only need a single value from the many table. Is this possible?

For instance:

PeopleID, PeopleName

JobID, JobName


SELECT PeopleName,JobName AS OneJobName
FROM People p
JOIN PeopleJob pj ON p.PeopleID = pj.PeopleID
JOIN Jobs j ON j.JobID = pj.JobID --how do I just get one value?
