Tom and Sophie are about to become fresh graduates. Here’s the conversation about their plans for the future. Let’s check it out.
You’ll soon graduate from your university. Do you have any plans for the future?
I’m planning to go to graduate school, but I also want to find a job. Otherwise, I’ll have nowhere to go if I fail the entrance exam.
Do you have a clear career path to follow?
Career path? I’m not sure.
What kind of job do you want after graduation?
I want to become a professor, a lawyer, an editor, a civil servant…
Wait! You can’t do so many things at the same time. What exactly do you want?
I don’t know. Do you have any advice for me?
Yeah,you should first decide what kind of career you really want, plan your career path, and then try your best to achieve your goal.
I think perhaps I need to buy a few years while I figure out about my career.
No, you can’t waste your time wandering around. If you want a job that requires a higher degree or diploma, you should focus on your graduate school extrance exam;if you want a job that needs working experience, you should start job hunting and consider further study at a later time.
Thank you so much for your advice. I’ll think it over.
That’s all for today. Let me know if you find it helpful!
