Campus lifeNovember 18th, 2017
Almost all students spend a lot of time on campus, and therefore the issues that affect their campus lives is critical. Some people might think that universities should hire experts to make these crucial decisions, but in my opinion, students should take part in the decision making process. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.
Parents are not the best teachersSeptember 20th, 2017
We all learn a lot of valuable lessons from our parents such as being nice to others and telling the truth. However, in my opinion, parents are not the best teachers when it comes to specialized education. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.
Job satisfaction and moneyJuly 24th, 2017
Most adults work to support themselves and some people might consider how much money they can earn is the most important factor when choosing a job. However, in my view, job satisfaction is more important because it enables you to live a happier life and to be more likely to be successful. First and foremost, choosing a job based on what you like to make you happy. Full-time workers usually spend most of their awake time on working. Therefore, enjoying this working time is integral for you to be happy. For instance, I became to be happier by doing what I satisfied with. When I graduated from university, I got a job at Goldman Sachs for a high salary. But I wasn’t happy then because it wasn’t what I really wanted to do. Now I work as a marketing manager at a prestigious corporation. Even though I don’t earn as much as I earned before, every day is very exciting for me, and I am much happier now. This example evidently portrays how job satisfaction affects your happiness. Moreover, doing what you satisfied with paves the way for you to succeed in your career. When you do what you really want to do, you can focus on it for a long time with less break, which would result in your success. Since I started to work as a marketing manager, I have been working harder than before. However, I have not felt stress at all. As a result, I successfully increased the sales of the product I am in charge of by 30% from last year. I am going to get promoted from next term as this recognition of such achievement. As this example shows, there is no doubt that people can achieve their best performance when they do their dream job. In conclusion, I agree with the statement "The most important thing about work is not how much you can earn, but whether you feel satisfied in your job.” By doing what you are satisfied with, you are more likely be happy and be successful.
Why people workJuly 24th, 2017
Money has a great impact to our lives. Since people have to work to get money for their living. Some people think that making money is the most important reason from their job, others do not. In my opinion, I believe that there are other important aspects of a job rather than money. First of all, some job helps people to reach their goal even they may earn little money. One of my friends, who is a professor now, preferred to focus in his work as a teacher and did not like to give private classes which will make him earn a lot of money. Therefore, he found a lot of time to study his master and finished his study quickly. If he gave his time for private classes, he will not be able to achieve his goal to be a professor. I, as another example, I need to focus in my study and pass Toefl and my medical exam to be a pharmacist. If I care only about money, I will try to get any job that offers me a lot of money. Moreover, money will not afford happiness. I believe that if I do what I like to do, I will be happy. Thus working just for money sometimes would be boring. I remembered, my first job as a pharmacist, I worked in a private pharmacy. It was so boring to me even I earned a lot of money each month. Therefore, I always look upset and sometimes I did not want to work. However, when I worked in the quality control in an international company, I really enjoyed my new job which needs me to work more hours and need more efforts with less money. In conclusion, money is important for people to afford their living but there are a lot of other aspects, especially in job rather than money. Happiness and goal achievement are aspects that could not be reached by earning a lot of money.
