A: Hi, Ben! How were your exams?
B: Nice of you to ask about them. Everything’s all right, thanks.
A: Is it? You look worried. Is there anything wrong?
B: No, everything’s all right, but when we were waiting for the results of the exam, we spoke about our future and our career plans. You know, I was the only one who hadn’t decided yet.
A: Well, let’s try to find out what kind of job could be suitable for you. I’ve got a special test that might give us the answer. All you need to do is to answer some questions. The first one is: “Would you like to work in an office or be out and about during working hours?”
B: It depends… But no, I think I would rather work inside. It could be difficult to be outside if the weather is bad. But I want to have the opportunity to be out in good weather, too.
A: Are good working conditions, job satisfaction and stability important to you?
B: Yes, I want my job to be exciting but not very stressful. Stability is very important to me, too. But I don’t want to work at the weekends or in summer.
A: And how about job satisfaction? What does that mean to you?
B: To me, job satisfaction isn’t just a quick promotion or good money. I want to feel useful.
A: Would you prefer working with machines or with people?
B: When I was little, I enjoyed taking things apart to see how they worked. But now communicating with people is much more important to me. I want to work with nice and friendly people.
A: OK. That’s enough. Let’s have a look at the test results. Well, there is a long list of jobs which meet your requirements. And the job of babysitter is at the top of the list.
B: Babysitter?! I have never thought about babysitting, but I don’t mind working with children. I’m very good at sports and the job of a coach has a lot of advantages. I’ll definitely try to learn more about it.
