Today there are thousands of different kinds of jobs and new ones are constantly appearing. Among the jobs that are most popular with teenagers are those in economic, tourist or computer fields. Take the profession of a manager, for example. In my opinion, it's a very interesting job because it involves working with people. Besides, if you cope with all the challenges of this job, you can be promoted to the position of a director and get a very high salary. Of course, you can become something like a computer programmer, a web designer because computers are an essential part of our everyday lives today. So we can say that our society needs people who can work with computers and write computer programmes. That)s why this profession is so popular today. As for me, I would like to become a tourist agent or a holiday representative, because a lot of people travel nowadays.
Parents and friends play a very important role in our choice. My mother works for an international tourist company as a managing director. It is a highly paid job and it offers a lot of opportunities. You can travel abroad and meet different people. My mother is a friendly person and she is easy to talk to. She advised me to choose this career. Besides, some of my friends want to work in this area, too, and it's very important for me to continue studying with friends.
Today tourism is one of the world's largest industries. In my opinion, it's very interesting to work in tourism because you will have to deal with the problems and needs of holidaymakers and plan trips and tours that will please everyone.
Besides, this profession is highly paid and I want to be able to buy everything I need with my salary. What's more, the perks of this job include free travel and living abroad. I can say that I'm very communicative and I like working with people. Besides, I'm very organised and hard-working. What's more, I like travelling and I'm ready to go wherever the company will send me. So I think I can become a good holiday representative or a tourist manager. But I understand that to make a good specialist in this field I should have good education, extensive knowledge of the world and experience of travel. And of course I must know several foreign languages. So after finishing school I will try to enter a university or a college and to continue my education.
