Câu hỏi + Câu trả lời mẫu Topic: Work/Study  


Do you work or are you a student?

I have joined the world of employment for over 3 years since I graduated from university. Currently I am working as an administrative assistant for a U.S company providing consulting services.

Why did you choose that job?
Honestly, at the time I made the decision to work for that company, I was jobless and really needed money. Therefore, when the employer offered me this job, I accepted without reluctance.

Well I guess the thing I like most about this job is the salary. I make what I’d consider is a lucrative income, which means not only is it enough to cover my bills, but there’s also some extra to spend on whatever I want. So on payday, I often treat myself to a meal at a high-end restaurant or splurge on a nice shirt.


Lucrative income: Thu nhập sinh lời

High-end: the most sophisticated, and typically the most expensive product in a line: tinh vi nhất và thường đắt nhất, hiểu nghĩa cao cấp.

Splurge on something: to spend a lot of money on someone or something: ý hiểu để chi tiêu rất nhiều tiền vào một ai đó hoặc một cái gì đó.

Do you think it is a good place to work? / Do you like your job? / What do you dislike about your job?

(Nội dung trả lời các câu hỏi này sẽ tương tự nhau)

Sadly, the answer is no. It is not a great workplace. Even though this company has a pleasant working environment with comfortable furniture and quiet atmosphere, there is a lack of support and encouragement from managers, as well as poor interactions among internal staff.

Sad to say, no. I find that there's no excitement while doing the job. This is due to the boring but stressful routine tasks. Also, I see no real purposes behind the work I produce every day.  It is just series of actions that will lead towards a poorly-defined or non-existent goal. 

{slider title="Sample answer 3" open="false"}
Yes, I really like my job because it's interesting and I work with a great team of people. I can learn a lot from them and feel that I can improve myself every day.
Do you think that place of work made you change?
Of course, yes. I realize that there's something inside me which has not been the same ever since I worked for this company. I have become more self-reliant, taken actions more proactively and solved problems more quickly.

Is there some other kind of work you would rather do? / 

I prefer working as a teacher or a social worker or an activist. In general, I love an occupation to be in connection with helping people and providing support for others.
Actually, I don’t think I’m able to dedicate myself to any other job rather than this one. In fact, to me it’s the experiences and opportunities I can gain that really matters. 

To dedicate to Sth: devote (time or effort) to a particular task or purpose ( ý chỉ cống hiến (thời gian hoặc công sức) cho một nhiệm vụ hoặc mục đích cụ thể)

Would you like to change your job in the future?

Definitely yes. Right after I save enough money to start my own English center, I will send in a resignation letter and have a whole new beginning. 

What would you change about your job?

If I could change something about my job, definitely it would be the general director. He is somehow part of my job since I'm his assistant. Because of his poor decisions and meaningless tasks which he assigns to me every day, I find that his retirement would bring significant changes to not only my job but also the whole company.

Do you prefer working alone or with others? Why?

Well, for the most part, I prefer to work alone since I can completely control the task outcomes. It would be a great nightmare if the teammates performed poorly and ineffectively.  

How many hours do you work each day?

I spend around 10-12 hours every day working. In addition to a nine-to-five job, after work I teach English to secondary students. I also manage an English self-study website. 

Do you have to work with other people?

Luckily, most of my tasks require little teamwork. I usually handle my job alone, even though sometimes there are big tasks that I have to cooperate with others to get them done.

Where do you want to see yourself in 10 years?

This is a question I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. In ten years, I can see myself as a director of my own company, working on exciting new projects and developing business strategies. Also, I will be writing part-time and may earn enough money from the sales of my supernatural fiction novels.
Well, this question pops into my mind from time to time, but to be honest, I have never managed to have an answer for it. I reckon that 10 years is such a long time and anything could happen, so it is hard to tell from now. 

Do you miss being a student?

I surely will miss my student life once I get involve in the workplace. For me I think when I’m a student, at least I have someone guide me, whereas at work mostly you must guide yourself. The academic environment appears to be a comfort zone for me, while I’m sure I’ll struggle with fitting in the working environment.


- To get involve in: to become a part of (an organization) nghĩa là để tham gia vào, trở thành một phần của một tổ chức, cơ quan.

- To fit in: to become suitable or appropriate for Sth or S nghĩa là để phù hợp với, để trở thành phù hợp hoặc thích hợp cho Sth hoặc SO.

What do you do after work?

I normally cook dinner, relax and walk my dog. Depending on my schedule, I might have plans with friends to meet for a coffee or shopping. In summer I go to the beach for a couple of hours then return home to cook dinner.
