Choosing a career
When you leave school you understand that the time to choose your future profession has come. Its 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 its no doubt about it youre 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 its 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. Its a good idea to take different factors into account: job satisfaction your future job must satisfy you; money its 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 Ill be able to enter there because I have a good knowledge of English and mathematics to pass the exams. So when Ill finish the University Im going to work in the fathers office as a financial consultant and specialist in this field. I think I will not disappoint my father about this job because Im 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.
