Let’s talk about your future career.
Let’s talk about your future career. What kind of job would you like to have in future?
I must say that when you leave school you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. It’s not an easy task to make the right choice of a job. People choose profession according to their own interests and abilities. And the most important thing is to understand what exactly you want to do and enter the university according to the sphere of your choice: whether it is medicine, economy, machinery or humanities.
When choosing a future career, we should consider different factors. In my opinion, money is one of the most important factors when you make a choice. There are highly paid jobs and low-paid jobs. I think everybody wants to earn as much money as possible. Training, promotional prospects and conditions should be also taken into account.
On the other hand, it’s good when you get satisfaction from your job. It is very important to choose a profession that suits your interests. In my opinion, a job should be interesting and socially important. Some jobs are considered to be more suitable for men and others for women. For example, the professions of a secretary or a nurse are more suitable for women. A lifeguard or a pilot are more likely the jobs for men. You should also decide whether you want to work indoors or outdoors.
To make the right choice, you should take into account your traits of character. It goes without saying that to become a good doctor you must be patient, caring and kind. Teacher’s work requires love for children, profound knowledge of subjects, and the ability to explain. A secretary has to be efficient and careful in order to do the work quickly and accurately. Salespeople need to be friendly and persuasive, to get people buy their products.
I have always been interested in economics and I am good at mathematics. I have an aptitude for working with people, and I think I’m rather communicative and have good social skills. I have good analytical abilities and I am good at problem-solving. Besides, I am good at English.
So after finishing school I want to enter the university and to study marketing or management.
Do you want to have a part-time job, when you are a student? Why (not)?
Frankly speaking, I don’t know because there are many downsides to having a part-time job when you are a student, as well as some advantages. People often think that part-time jobs are responsible for a student’s bad grades because a student pays less attention to the studies.
In my opinion, having a part-time job will actually help a student learn many skills that they might not have the opportunity to learn at university. I believe having a part-time job teaches a student the importance of time management: combining work and studies at the same time. Having a part-time job also teaches a person how to communicate and interact with others.
So having a part-time job teaches students sharp skills which they will need all throughout their careers and lives.
What questions will you ask your future employer at a job interview?
How does the organization show that it values its workers or employees?
What do you expect me to do in order to help your company achieve its goals?
What are the challenges that 1 might face in the job if hired?
Have you got any special rules to regulate a working day?
Is there any dress-code in your office?
What is the period of holidays?
Are there any additional financial rewards for the job?
Give some advice on how to behave at a job interview to create a positive impression on the employer?
One thing which all successful people have is the ability to make a good impression.
The type of dress or clothes you put on says so much about you. The first judgment that interviewers make is basically based on your dress code. Do not dress in casual or dirty clothes. Instead, look for official clothes and make sure that you are groomed properly.
ARRIVE ON TIME
One of the most important factors to take into consideration, whenever you are invited for an interview, is time. It’s very advisable for you to arrive for the interview at least 20 minutes earlier before the scheduled time. This will give you enough time to organize and recollect yourself well. Being punctual for the interview will also show the interviewers how serious and reliable you are for the job.
Self-confidence is also one of the most determining factors in an interview. During the interviewing process, just be yourself and provide relevant answers to the questions being asked. However, you should be very careful not to be overconfident. Do not go inside with chewing gum in your mouth or with your hands inside your pockets.
Some people think that it is necessary to have computer skills to get a good job. Do you agree with this?
Nowadays it’s almost impossible to imagine any profession without global communication, making presentations and doing many sorts of things on the computer. And sure you must be skillful enough to work with it. Your employer will prefer to have a person who is potentially able to manage all these things.
So, if a person has got a strong motivation, it’ll be easy for him/her to make progress in the computer world. First of all it’s necessary to join some computer courses in case you are unable to manage some things yourselves. But to my mind, the Internet can offer you a great variety of possibilities connected with advancing your computer knowledge.
