Part 2 (Cue Card)
Describe a job that you think is interesting. You should say
– what job it is
– what skills are required for this job
– why you find this job interesting
and explain whether you would consider pursuing this job in the future.
I’d like to talk about the job of a travel blogger. You know, those folks who travel to different places, try out all sorts of food, and then share their experiences online.
Now, to be a good travel blogger, you need a mix of skills. First off, you’ve got to be a decent writer because you’re basically telling stories about your adventures. Good photography skills are a must too because people love to see what you’re experiencing. Being tech-savvy helps because you’ll be managing websites and social media.
What I find super interesting about this job is the sense of adventure. Imagine getting paid to explore new cities, try exotic foods, and meet interesting people. It’s like a never-ending vacation, but with a purpose! Plus, you get to share your passion with others and inspire them to travel and experience new things.
The idea of having the freedom to work from anywhere in the world also appeals to me. It’s not your typical 9-to-5 gig. You’re your own boss, and you set your own schedule.
As for whether I’d consider pursuing this job in the future, I’d say it’s a dream for many, but it’s not without challenges. It can be tough to establish yourself in such a competitive field, and it takes time to build an audience. Right now, I have other career goals, but who knows? Maybe one day, I’ll dip my toes into travel blogging as a side hustle.
