    Choice of a job

         Before taking a job, a young person should ask himself two simple questions: "What kind of work do I like?” and "What kind of work can I do well?” These questions are important for several reasons. First of all, we will spend most of our adult life working; and we should settle on a job in which we will be reasonably successful and happy. For if we are frustrated and discontented with our work, we will be irritable and annoyed not only with ourselves, but also with friends, associates, and family.

         Also, except for the few of you who will have independent incomes, your livelihood will depend on your job. The kind of job you take determine your standard of living, the things you will be able to afford beyond the mere necessities of life. Frequently one of the first questions we ask about another person is: ”What does he do? What is his job?”

         And a person’s job is most important to his self-concept, to the image he forms of himself. If he is successful in his work, he will be confident and self-assured.

         Our job, then, performs various complex functions in our lives and serves many different needs. Consequently, a person should consider and weigh all factors carefully down to a specific occupation. If possible, he should try a few different jobs in an effort to find one that will satisfy at least some of his needs.

         During our adolescence we have had a chance to discover some of our interests and to explore our abilities. We have found our own preferences and have learned what others expect of us. Many of us, perhaps, have already held part-time jobs during the school years or have worked full time during the summer vacations. And if these jobs have been varied, we have had a chance to discover some of the things we can or cannot do well and the sort of frustrations and satisfactions each job has to offer. Though all these influences and experiences we become oriented in the occupational field. By the time we reach the point where we must decide on a full-time job, we may not know exactly which job to choose but we may at least have eliminated those we feel would definitely not suit us.

     9.  Make up questions to each paragraph of the text.

    10. Give the Russian equivalents for the following: adult life; to settle on a job; discontented with work; associate independent income; livelihood; the standard of living; to afford; mere necessities of life; self-concept; image of himself; successful in his work; a specific occupation; try a few different jobs; satisfy his needs; a particular job; part-time job; to work full-time; oriented in the occupational field; decide on a full-time jobs.
