Model Answer 1:
If I am ever given the opportunity, I would like to work at Google Inc., one of the leading Information Technology-related companies in the world. The corporate headquarter of this company is called Googleplex and is located at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway in Mountain View, California in USA.

As a software developer, I would prefer to work in the same position or perhaps as a project manager in this company where I would be responsible to write programming codes in Java and Python languages. If I can choose, I would work on Google Analytics or Search Console projects - two of the hugely popular products offered by Google.

I am already 28 years old and have more than five years of programming experience. So, I would prefer to go there and start working right now. Though this is just a wish of mine, I still think that starting working for Google at the age of 28 is a great time for me.

I want to work at Google in the USA mainly for three reasons. First, the working conditions and opportunities offered at Googleplex in Google's corporate headquarter are unmatched. Many programmers, around the world, dream to work there, and so am I. Second, it would offer me an excellent career opportunity as well as an excellent opportunity to learn from the bright minds who work there. Finally, when it comes to migration to another country, the USA is on my preferred list perhaps because it is a beautiful country and many of my friends and relatives are already there.


Sample Answer 2:
I will complete my graduation from University in a couple of months. After completing my graduation, I am planning to get a job in China. For this topic, I will tell you "why", "where" and "when" I plan to move there to work. So, please bear with me!

China is an emerging economy and is often considered a land of opportunity. Shanghai is its capital, and I am planning to move to Shanghai to build a career as a musician and actor in the performing arts. I know very well that it is not going to be easy, but I am willing to take risks and face the challenges to fulfil my dream.

I would like to start as a musician, but then, over time, I would like to establish myself as a performing artist in theatre, music and arts. I am planning to move there sometime next September after I complete my graduation. If everything goes according to my plan, I would be in China next year. So please wish me some luck here!

China offers ample opportunities to expand careers in my desired arena. Moreover, the country offers some incentives for entrepreneurs in arts and music. As a lover of oriental music and performing arts, I think Shanghai is one of the best places in the world to build a career.
