IELTS Speaking 2017 Questions # Career Choice

The first section of IELTS speaking is all about yourself. This makes it the easiest of all the sections. There have been so many times we have talked about questions related to career or your job that could be asked in the IELTS speaking part I. This time we bring to you the latest questions that were asked in speaking section related to job/career. Notice, the difference in the pattern of questions asked.

Are you a student or are you working?

I am working for an organisation presently which offers IT services to other companies. My work requires writing codes that help in analysing data and creating trends. We are constantly dealing with the changing data and handling it, making the applications user friendly and our job easier as well.

I am currently studying English Literature  in Jadavpur University, Calcutta. It is truly one of the best and has helped me in understanding the language in a better way. The faculties are fantastic and I have truly gained so much from this experience.

In case you answer you are at a job –

What is your current job?

I am helping an organisation provide IT services to other companies. We work on data provided by our clients and help them understand the trend of the data. This helps them in making better decisions for their business allowing it to grow at a faster pace.

How do you feel about the job?

Most people look for their career growth in the job, but I am learning how to work right now. How do business deals happen, what are the factors that cause failure and understanding the psychology of people. And my job helps me a lot in this because it requires me to interact with other people. People who change their opinions and with that we have to change quickly. If we talk about work, it is not something I love to do but then learning how to make things happen, I think it will help in later in life.

Are you planning to change the job in future?

Definitely yes. I am constantly looking for my true expression and would love to do that. Like, Oprah did what was her truest expression and I want that for myself as well.

In case you answer you are a student –

Which course are you studying?

I am studying English Literature. So, our syllabus is all about reading the literature of great women and men from all over the world. For first two years, we read books by great authors. Then, we had a semester of writing. So, we wrote a lot, on different topics and themes. This semester we are working on slogans and reports and making documentaries. After this, I have two more semesters to go.

Do you like the course?

I love the course. As a kid, I always was fond of English literature and when everyone was bothered about getting marks, it was a subject I studied for pure fun. So, doing a major in English is like having a paid vacation.

What do you wish to do with the education that you gained?

I have always loved English and Math. I am not exactly sure as to what I would love to do with the education that I have now on English and Math but certainly a mixture of both is something I am looking forward to. So, an opportunity where I can use my communication skills, my math knowledge and the English writing is what I am looking for. I don’t want to fit into a box of certain ideas, I would prefer being in a box but the one that I made.


Why Prefer Singapore?
