Some people change
their jobs every few years. Others say it is better to work for one company
for a long period.
Almost everybody dreams of having a good
job and making a career. Some people prefer sticking to one company for many
years, while others, especially young people, are constantly looking for
Personally, I think that if you stay
with one company, you will have an opportunity to learn everything about it and
to make a career. If you are devoted to your profession and work hard, you are
likely to be promoted. What is more, you can make friends with your colleagues
and earn your employer's respect. So, the company that you work for may become
However, a lot of people have to change
their jobs very often. If the employee thinks that his or her job is not
well-paid or his or her career is not advancing at an acceptable pace, why not
look for something else? Some people feel under impossible pressure at work.
Others face situations that can lead to stress such as poor relationships with
colleagues, an unsupportive boss, lack of consultation and communication, too
much interference with their private, social or family lives, work that is too
difficult or not demanding enough, poor working conditions and so on. If people
feel that they will hardly achieve a higher position in this organization, they
usually move to another company. In some cases employees feel that they have
outgrown their jobs and they have a desire to find something more suitable to
their personality and to develop in new directions.
To sum up, I believe that employees should
decide for themselves what to do to make a career. Anyway, both options have
advantages and disadvantages.
At present there is
no difficulty in choosing a career. However, many people say that it is not so
easy to find a really good job.
Nowadays young people have a lot of
opportunities to receive good education and to find a well- paid job. In any
city there are a lot of firms which need qualified specialists. So young people
have a wide choice of career options, but many of them think that it is difficult
to find something suitable to their interests and expectations.
Personally, I think that if you are
clever, active and full of energy, you can easily find a good job. You can even
stay at home and search the Web for vacancies. Just use e-mail, send your
resume to several companies and wait for their offers. Then you can be selected
for a job interview and you will be asked some questions about your job
history, skills, interests and so on. If you are suitable for the post, you
will be offered a job. If not, you can go on looking for other variants.
However, making a positive career choice
is a problem which worries many people. Some of them don't know what they are
good at. When young people graduate from a University, they need to find a job
and most of them understand that it is not an easy task. Many companies,
offices, firms and factories demand work experience and that is why they don't
want to employ people fresh from school. As a result, the percentage of
unemployed youth is rather high.
In conclusion, I would like to say that
if you are lazy, you are not likely to find a good job. But if you do your best
to achieve your goal, you will certainly succeed.
Nowadays a lot of
people work so much that they do not have time to do anything else. Some people
say that workaholism is a key to success. Others are convinced that it is
rather bad to be addicted to one's work.
Some people think that they will succeed
only if they work a lot. If you are the first one in the morning and the last
one to leave at night, if you take fewer vacation days and never take a sick
day, you will do better than the people who don't do that. But is it really
good to be a workaholic?
To my mind, workaholics often forget
about work-life balance and suffer from the conflict between work and family
They often sacrifice their health and loved ones for their jobs. They are too
much preoccupied with their careers and they have no time for rest, pleasure
and spiritual development. As a result, constant fatigue, physical and moral
exhaustion, monotony and impossible pressure at work and at home may cause
stress. Consequently, it may result in a real breakdown of health. What is
more, workaholism may lead to early death, often on the job.
However, working hard is greatly valued
in many countries. For instance, there are many people who are addicted to
their work in the USA. They always think about their work and feel frustrated
if they are kept from it, even during weekends and holidays. But I believe that
workaholism is not the same as working hard. I think that everybody should
realize that being healthy and happy is more important than making a career.
To sum up, workaholism is a serious
social problem Workaholics' obsession with work is all- occupying, which
prevents them from maintaining healthy relationships and outside interests. So
it is better not to overwork and to protect your health.
According to some
people, it is better to work abroad. Others say that they would prefer working
in their own country.
As nowadays travelling has become
cheaper and easier, more and more people have the chance to work in a foreign
country. Millions of people are now working overseas. However, others are
convinced that it is better to work in your own country.
On the one hand, working in a foreign
country gives you a wider view of the world. To my mind, it gives you an
opportunity to work on some international projects, to make friends with people
of different nationalities, to learn more about foreign culture, to gain useful
knowledge and experience and to learn foreign languages.
On the other hand, a lot of people say
that it is rather bad when experienced specialists leave their motherland in
order to work abroad. Our country needs good doctors, scientists, inventors,
sportsmen, writers and so on. What is more, working abroad has a number of
disadvantages. Firstly, it is rather difficult to get a work permit. Secondly,
settling in can also be a problem. Thirdly, a lot of people say they find
having to speak a foreign language 24 hours rather exhausting. But despite the
challenges, many people find working abroad extremely interesting.
To conclude, I think that working in a
foreign country can help you improve your knowledge, broaden your mind and make
a career. If you give yourself time to settle in and discover new things, you
will be able to realize your potential and to succeed. Anyway, you can always
return to your mother country and work to improve its economy, politics or
Some young people say
that they want their future job to be well-paid. Others believe that the most
important thing is to love what you do.
In their professional lives, many people
have to choose between love and money — between doing a job they love that
doesn't have great financial rewards, or doing a job that pays well but doesn't
satisfy the soul.
Personally, I think that my future
profession must be interesting, rewarding and challenging. If it is well-paid,
but boring, I will hardly like it. I want to find a job that will give me an
opportunity to travel to foreign countries and to meet interesting people.
Besides, I would like to work on some international projects and to learn
several foreign languages. My profession should help me develop in new
directions and suit my character, skills and abilities.
However, some people don't take into
consideration their interests and dreams when they look for a job. They think
only about their future salary and they are even ready to do work that is too
boring, difficult or not demanding enough if they are paid a lot of money. Such
people don't care about poor working conditions or lack of support and
communication at work. But to my mind, it is rather exhausting to do the work
that you don't like and to look forward to the end of your working day. You
will certainly feel stressed and dissatisfied.
To conclude, most young people lack work
experience and seldom earn much money at the beginning of their career.
However, if they work for one company for a long time, they are likely to be
given several pay rises and to be promoted. Anyway, I think that your
well-being is more important than your bank account.
Teamwork skills have
become highly valued by employers. However, some people say that sometimes
teams cannot work successfully.
Nowadays more and more employers demand
teamwork skills. Good collaboration by team members helps achieve goals more
easily. However, bad collaboration leads to unsuccessful performance. So what
are the pros and cons of teamwork?
Personally, I think that the more people
there are in a team, the greater productivity is. Team members can communicate,
exchange their ideas and share their experience and skills with each other. If
a company has a team full of creative people who complement one another, then
achieving the goal is far more likely. To my mind, every team member should be
able to make the right decision. A well considered decision will lead his or
her team to success.
But not everybody can work effectively
in a team. Some people put their own needs first and do not think of the common
goal. Others cannot acknowledge and appreciate the contributions of other
members of the team. Quite a lot of employees try to force their ideas upon
others, or look down on other people. They are reluctant to cooperate or seek
advice from other members. Furthermore, some people cannot maintain good
relationships with their colleagues and handle criticism and complaints
appropriately. As a result, such individuals find it difficult to work with
other team members and the team will not be able to succeed. But I strongly
feel that it is very important to develop one's teamwork skills because they
can help employees make a career.
To conclude, I believe that the success
of the team depends on every its member. That is why every employee must do his
or her best to help the team succeed.
Some people think
that to be a success you need talent; others believe that hard work can
compensate for the lack of it.
What is success? People define this
notion in many different ways. Success may mean the achievement of what one
wants or intends, a high position in society, one's job, course or sport. Some
people believe that success is connected with the amount of money they earn.
But quite a lot of people don't know what they need to be successful.
To my mind, if you want to succeed, you
must work hard. Even the most talented person will never be successful if he or
she is lazy. All successful people face a number of challenges at the beginning
of their career. They have to overcome many difficulties, but they don't give
up. At last their persistence leads to success. Success always goes hand in
hand with hard work and great efforts and one often faces a lot of obstacles,
troubles, disappointment and failure on the way to success.
However, some people think that if a person
is not talented, he or she will hardly succeed. As a rule ordinary people have
ordinary lives. No matter how hard they work, they can never get results.
People who are not talented, but industrious usually become good workers, but
they are not likely to make great discoveries or to invent something that can
revolutionize the world. But I still believe that one must be hard-working,
patient, and strong-willed if one wants to be successful.
In conclusion, I would like to add that
people are successful if they use all their talents and work hard in order to
improve the world and to make it a bit better.
Some people say that
it is impossible to work without inspiration. Others say that inspiration is
People of different professions have
been looking for inspiration for centuries. But we still don't know what
inspiration is and where it can be found. Many people wonder whether
inspiration is important in our lives and what makes us feel it.
In my opinion, inspiration is part and
parcel of the creative process. In this state we are capable of making
discoveries, writing poems, inventing new things and making something unusual.
Every masterpiece of art, literature, music or architecture has been created
thanks to inspiration. This wonderful feeling has nothing in common with
mediocrity, boredom or idleness. When I feel inspiration, I can work for many
hours running and I never feel tired or bored. On the contrary, I am full of
energy and enthusiasm.
However, some people say that they have
no inspiration. They consider their lives to be monotonous and say that every
day is exactly like the previous one. Working, saving, planning, bringing up
their children, doing household chores — these are the daily aspects of their
lives. But I think that inspiration is everywhere and it lives in every soul.
Sometimes looking at the rising sun, falling leaves or smiling children we feel
the desire to create. Many things can inspire us and fill our head with new
ideas and thoughts.
To conclude, only love of their work and
inspiration can make people create beautiful and unusual things. Inspiration is
very important because it makes us work, think, search, create and express
ourselves. In other words, it makes us live.
Some people think
that the profession of a teacher is important and noble, while others claim it
has lost its positions and it is not as respected as it used to be.
A teacher is a person who plays a very
important role in children's development, upbringing and education. One should
have some particular traits of character to be a success in this profession.
I strongly feel that the profession of a
teacher is one of the most important professions in the world. A teacher is
always responsible for his or her pupils. He or she should encourage their inner
development, protect them from any negative influence and watch their progress
carefully. A teacher's responsibility is not only to educate a child. He or
she should also understand pupils' feelings and dreams, share their problems
and give good advice. A real teacher is a person who can inspire his pupils
with interest and love for his or her subject. What is more, a teacher may even
become as important for children as their parents.
However, some people believe that
nowadays teachers are not as respected as they used to be. Unfortunately, this
noble profession is not well-paid and it makes some people think that it is not
prestigious. Modern society respects money and power. That is why young people
try to choose professions which can make them rich and influential. Everybody
is eager to make a career and to become famous and successful. But good
teachers do not strive for money or fame. Their only concern is children's
To conclude, we should have the greatest
respect for teachers. They are deeply devoted to their job in spite of all
problems and difficulties. We should be grateful to our teachers for their
help, patience and professionalism.
