Remember to discuss:
Whether it is easy to choose your future career, why
What factors people should consider when they make a choice
Whether you would like to follow in your parents’ footsteps, why
What is important for you in your future profession, why
Finishing school is the beginning of an independent life for millions of school-leavers. Many roads are open before us: technical schools, colleges and universities. Centuries ago there were only a few jobs: people were farmers, bakers, butchers or carpenters. Today there are thousands of different kinds of jobs, and new ones are constantly appearing. No wonder that it is not an easy thing to make the right choice. Besides, at this age we don't know for sure our preferences and abilities, which makes our choice even more difficult. 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. I think everybody wants to earn as much as possible. Further training, promotion prospects and job conditions should be also taken into account. Besides, you ought to decide whether you want to work indoors or outdoors. On the other hand, it's good when you get satisfaction from your job. So it's very important to choose a profession that suits your interests. Finally, to make the right choice you should take into account your abilities and traits of character.
I don't think it's a right decision to follow in the footsteps of a parent or a relative if you are not interested in this profession. Although my parents are doctors, I don't seem to be very interested in caring for others and helping them with their problems. For such professions like medicine you have to be very good at chemistry and I am not much of a chemist. Besides, I'm not very patient and I'm afraid of blood. That's why I don't want to choose my parents' profession. My father is a friendly person and he is easy to talk to. He also believes that I must choose my future occupation according to my taste and preferences. I have always been interested in economics and I enjoy working with people so I'd like to become a manager. I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
Of course I would like to have a well-paid job in the future because I enjoy travelling and 1 would like to see the world. Besides, I'm very keen to be successful so promotion prospects are also important for me. My ambition is to work as a managing director of a large company. However, for me choosing a career is not only a matter of future prestige and wealth. First of all, my future profession should be interesting and bring real satisfaction. That's the way I see it.
