Choosing a career

When you leave school you understand that the time to choose your
future profession has come. It’s not an easy task to make the right
choice of a job. I have known for a long time that leaving school is the
beginning of a far more serious examination of my abilities and
character.

As the years passed I have changed my mind a lot of times about which
science or field of industry to specialize in. It was difficult to make
up my mind and choose one of hundred of jobs to which I might be better
suited.

Everyone needs at least one profession in his life. So when you begin
spending sleepless nights thinking about a job and money, when you think
longingly of the plans for the future it’s no doubt about it you’re
ready to choose most suitable career for you.

So in the world there are very and very many different professions: you
can work with people as a doctor, a lawyer, a receptionist, a teacher,
etc.; on the enterprise, bank, school, state institution. And what kind
of a profession you choose is mainly depend on yourself. And I think
it’s very difficult task for everybody.

And now there is such situation in the life that it is very difficult
to find some worthy job especially suitable for you. So if you want
some-how to get a gob, you can make plans for the future when you study
still at school. It’s a good idea to take different factors into
account: job satisfaction – your future job must satisfy you; money –
it’s important that your future profession must be well-paid or you must
have a high salary to support the family, etc; good conditions;
training; travelling and so on; the place of work -in the office, from
home, in the open area, abroad, etc.

In the past, when I was at age of 10, I dream of becoming a
lawyer.Because a lawyer should be very energetic, talkative, inventive,
enterprise, creative, adventurous and enthusiastic. I wanted to work
with people and help them. But now I can say that I made up my mind what
to do in the future. I think I have an aptitude for working with figures
and solving financial problems and I am interested in knowing how money
is made. So I think I can work as an economist in the financial field. I
think that it is more in demand now especially in banks where a really
good specialist can have a lot of money. The success of this profession
depends on mainly my education. So I want to enter to the Vyatka State
Technical University on the social-economics faculty in spite of the
very high competition. I think I’ll be able to enter there because I
have a good knowledge of English and mathematics to pass the exams. So
when I’ll finish the University I’m going to work in the father’s office
as a financial consultant and specialist in this field. I think I will
not disappoint my father about this job because I’m energetic,
communicative, enterprise and quick by nature.

Our society is made up of all kinds of organizations, such as companies,
government departments, unions, hospitals, schools, libraries and the
like. They are essential to our existence, helping to create our
standard of living and our quality of life. In all the organizations
there are people carrying out the work of the manager although they do
not have that tittle. The vice- chancellors of a university, the
president of a students union or a chief librarian are all managers.
They have the responsibility to use the resources of their organization
effectively and economically to achieve its objectives.

Managers are to forecast, plan, organize, coordinate, control and
motivate other workers. In most companies the activities of managers
depend on the level at which he (she) is working. Top managers such as
the chairmen and directors, will be more involved in long range
planning, policy making and the relations of the company with the
outside world. They will be making decisions on the future of the
company, the sort of product lines it should develop, the way it should
face up to the competition, the means of diversifying, etc.

On the other hand, middle management and supervisions are generally
making the day- to-day decisions, which help an organization to run
efficiently and smoothly. They must response to the pressure of the job,
which may mean dealing with unhappy customers, chasing up supplies,
meeting an urgent order or sorting out technical problems. Managers at
this level spend a great deal of time communicating, coordinating and
making decisions affecting the daily operation of their organization.

In carrying out management functions, such as planning, organizing,
motivating and controlling, a manager will be continually making
decisions. Decision-making is a key management responsibility. Some
decisions are often the routine kind. They are decisions, which are made
fairly quickly and are based on judgement. Other decisions are often
intuitive ones. Before making a decision the manager will carefully
assess» the options, considering the advantages and disadvantages of
each one. Thus any manager is to be a bit challenging person.
