TOEFL Essay Topic 48 - People work because they need money to live. What are some other reasons that people work? Discuss one or more of these reasons. Use specific examples and details to support your answer.
Choosing a profession is a problem that a lot of people find it very decisive and difficult to solve. Two important factor in making such decisions are parents job and personal interest. In my opinion, choosing a job that is very different from the parent’s job is both challenging and difficult to pursue. However, personal interest should have a higher weight in the process. So, neither similarity nor difference of parents job should have a predominant effect on the decision process.
First of all, by choosing a job similar to your parents you have the chance to use all of their experiences. These experiences include both home management and working experience. As a result, you won’t start from scratch and whenever you need a consult you have your parents beside you to help you. On the other hand, by choosing a job dissimilar to your parents’ job, you need to double or even triple times your efforts to learn new things and be successful.
Second, self-interest should play a significant role in the process of job selection. Nonetheless, the personal abilities are a restrictive factor that we have to take into consideration. However, nothing can stop a strong will. So, when self-interest comes into play, other factors become blurred and the child should be assured that he or she should follow his/her dreams, otherwise the child may feel regret that had not followed his personal dream or interest.
As discussed in above lines, children should make a free and wise decision by receiving an honest advice and the similarity or dissimilarity of a job to parents job should not be a restrictive element for children.
