Рис. \(1\). Choosing a career
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a famous actor or a politician. However, these jobs demand skills and features of character I don't have, so I gave up these ideas. Fortunately, there are plenty of other good jobs like a programmer, an engineer or a doctor.
Or a manager, for instance. It's a responsible but interesting job because it means working mostly with people. So, to be a good manager you have to have great communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills.
Being a software engineer or a programmer requires a different set of personal characteristics. You have to be creative, attentive to details, patient and able to work in a team. Being organized and able to meet deadlines is crucial too. These jobs are very popular these days because we use computers every day in almost every part of our life — from education to banking.
I would like to become a travel agent because tourism is a fast-developing and important industry these days. The number of holidaymakers is growing every year. Basically, this job is all about troubleshooting and helping people to find the best way to relax and have fun. I think it's possible to make a living out of it — it's a pretty well-paid job. But you need to have required skills such as active listening, persuading, being thorough as well as verbal communication skills and speaking foreign languages.
I work hard to achieve my goal — I'm going to continue my studies at college to become a good travel agent. I think I have most of the soft skills needed — I'm organized, good at paying attention to details and I know English well.
Write true, false, doesn’t say:
1. A programmer is not a very good job.
2. A software engineer has to be creative, attentive to details, patient and able to work in a team.
3. The writer wants to read many books about travelling.
