Honestly, I didn’t really intend to become a saleperson because I initially thought It was so stressful. After graduation, I took me ages to be called for an interviewed because most of headhunters was in search of experienced candidates. Fortunately, I was employed to work in the Sales department of an international hotel brand and gained a lot of experiences within the field. Unlike any other business, working within such a fast-paced environment literally triggers my mind to access its full potential, so it makes me a real trouper.

What I’ve been through has proved that I was born to be a sale person, especially within Hospitality. Honestly, I literally picked Accounting when I enrolled in university to follow my father’s footsteps. I don’t really want to brag but my father firmly assured me of my career path as an accountant because he was the head of Accounting Department in Kreston, which is one of the most prestigious Accouting and Auditing Enteprise in my country. However, I had no interests in working with figures and computer-based auditing programs. Instead, I found it really appealing when I partake in social activities which offered great opportunities to gain my confidence in communication during my university years. Besides, I have some part-time job experiences in this field and have been working as a sale executive for the last two years. My skills in analysing the market and understanding the target audience along with my persuasive skills make me a deserving candidate for this job. With regard to the future, I will definitely go extra miles to get promoted as a sale manager.
C. IELTS Speaking Part 3:
1. Which jobs are the most respected in your country?
There are a wide range of professions which people can gain respect from others in my nation such as: teacher, lawyer and so on. To me, every job done sincerely with best intentions is respectable.
2. Some people say it’s better to work for yourself than be employed by a company. What’s your view?
From my perspective, it is wiser to first seek a position at a company to gain more hands – on experience before launching a start – up. In addition to entrepreneurship, your working day may be much longer and more irregular than someone who isn’t self-employed. Business commitments may mean that you spend less time with your friends and family, or struggle to switch off from work life.
