                 Topic N1 ("Choosing a Career")


     Choosing a career is like any other activity; it is best  to

work to a plan. Too many people start looking for a specific  job

before thinking out their occupational aims. It is a good idea to

begin  by  attempting  to  define  in  clear  terms  what    your

requirements are from a career. This involves taking a  realistic

view of your strengths and weaknesses. You may think for example,

that you would like a job which involves organizing  people,  but

liking such a job is not a sufficient justification if experience

you already may have suggests that this is not your strong point.

On the other hand, you should remember that training willl  equip

you to do new things. A further point to consider is how far  you

will be willing to do for a time things which  you  do  not  like

knowing that they  are  necessary  to  achive  your  longer  term

objectives. Having thought carefully about the sort of person you

are, try to work out a realistic set pf occupational  requirment.

In particular, you can answer to important questions. First: what

sort of life do you want to lead? For example,  do  you  want  to

live in the country or in the town?  Is  leisure  time  of  great

importance to you? Is the size of your salary important?  Do  you

want to put down roots or travel videly?  Second:  what  sort  of

work do you want to do? For example, do you like working alone or

with others? Does teaching people appeal to you? Do you  want  to

be an organizer of other people's  activities?  Do  you  want  to

develop new ideas and initiate changes.

     As for me, I have made up my mind to be an engineer.  As  my

parents are an engineeres they have made a great influence on  my

choice and I can say that this profession  runs  the  family.  My

choice of this occupation didn't come as a sudden flash. I  think

that nowdays this profession is of great need and  importance  to

our country. It is my aim to be a  qualified  specialist  and  to

serve the interests of my country. To be a well prepared engineer

I  should  have  some  important  qualities:   great   capability

persistance, knowledge of  science  and, of course,  knowledge of

foreign languages. In  spite of  these arguments we musn't forget

about everybody's vacation. I think that my  facilities  combined

with the knowledge would be quiet enough to succeed in my work.
