Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People learn more by watching television than by reading books.
The majority of the individuals in our society are raised on the idea that people choose a permanent job and adhere to it for the rest of their lives. I am of the belief that people should tackle into different jobs until they find their desired career. If I am asked to give my friend some advice, I will explain my insight towards this issue in the following paragraphs. First, if my friend is seeking for a career shift, I will definitely ask her to find a job that drives her to develop her professional skills. I used to have a friend who has spent ten years of her life in one job. She found out that she missed some needed skills in the work field. As I mentioned before, the best job is the one which pulls you out of the comfort zone and pushes you forward to improve one'self. Second, I think one of the essential aspects when deciding for a job is to choose a career that you truly like and ignore any other interferences such as parents' wish or society's vision. I have watched a TEDX talk presented by Basem Youssof who was a cardiothoric surgeon.He shifted his career from surgery to be a stand up comedian so he had a promising career. Although they are totally two different fields, he got the gut to leave the medical career behind and go for his passion. If he had continued to be a cardiothoric surgeon, he wouldn't have reached the fame and success that he achieved and witnessed right now. That is why I really stand strongly for determining the career according to your interests and abilities. In a summary, if my friend is thinking of career shifting, I will recommend her to look for a job that keeps her ambitious and looks forward to develoing herself continuously.Another recommendation is that she should choose a career which gives her a full satisfaction of herself no matter what the job is and without any external pressure from the parents or society.
