Part 4: Sentence gap filling

Choosing a Career

You know what they say; find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. So, if you are thinking about what to do with your life, this may be something to consider.

16. E. Choosing a career can be difficult. Especially because there are so many jobs to choose from and many things to think about, such as qualifications and financial rewards.(this sentence is matched to explain for the option E, no other choice can fit) 17. C. So how do you pick a career? The only answer (there is only option C which is a question) seems to be “choose one that makes you feel that you are getting paid for doing something you truly love”.

Unless you have grown up with a talent or are keen on something that you can make a career out of, you need to consider certain things about yourself. What suits your personality? We are all different and just because your best friend wants to be a doctor, this does not mean that you should follow. 18. H. You need to make an informed decision. (informed decision/choice/judgment etc: a decision etc that is based on knowledge of a subject or situation) This means thinking carefully (=consider) about the path you need to follow to get that job. Are you willing to get the training or education needed? 19. G. You must also consider why you really want to do it. (“also” means that you are mentioning the second point, and the word “because” in the next sentence fits with the question “why”). If it’s just because it’s well paid, then, for sure, sometime in the future you are going to feel ’empty’, even with a healthy bank account.

Nowadays, there are plenty of online career sites, but the main part has to come from you. You need to be honest and measure your skills and talents realistically. Also, you may need to talk to your parents who have their own ideas, based on their own experiences, about what you should do. 20. A. They have your best interests at heart. (have somebody’s (best) interests at heart (=care about someone and want to do what is best for them)) They don’t want to see you having financial problems or being unemployed. But at the end of the day, it is your life. There is no point in being miserable for the next forty years just to please someone else.

  1. They have your best interests at heart.
  2. The education system is different in each country.
  3. So how do you pick a career?
