Well-paid job that you think you would be good at

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 302 with Model Answer:

Talk about a well-paid job that you think you would be good at.

You should say:
  • what the job is
  • what qualifications are required for this job
  • how this job is different than other jobs
and say why you would be good at this job.  

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you're going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Model Answer 1:
Having a job is really difficult in India as the number of educated youths is on the rise, and having a well-paid job is one of the toughest tasks of the world here. But the jobs of marketing are well-paid and I am good at it. In fact, I am currently executing the role of a marketing manager at a local company and I firmly believe that I am a suitable candidate for the post. Thank you for the smart question.

The job of marketing products and expansion of the product market in the local markets and stores is really a challenging one. But the rewards are able to make people forget about their torments and sufferings for the job. When someone reaches the top of this type of job, salary is not a problem for them. They are highly paid for their contributions to the development of the company. And I would be good at it for some specific reasons.

The job requires a higher academic certification in marketing and management, especially in business and marketing. An MBA major in Marketing is preferable. Besides, the position requires about 10 years of experience in the post. In fact, without any experience, you would not be able to create strategies. The thing you may get is only challenges. There would be no ways to get rid of the troubles. Managing the market is a big deal. If you fail to meet the demands of the consumers or you lack productions, certainly the product will be blacklisted by the consumers. Besides, you are to make people attracted to your product and for that, you need innovative ways to follow. If you are unable to attract mass attention, this is not your cup of coffee. Smartness, ready wit, sharp sense, instant decision-making ability, intelligence, public relations etc. are the key qualifications in line with your academic activities and experience.

This is a different job than the usual ones. In fact, the job of marketing is one of the toughest one. It requires a special set of skills and expertise. For instance, if you are responsible for promoting any product, you are to make sure that you follow the right strategy. If you fail to reach your target consumers, your products and company will experience losses at the same time. Most of the cases, people are reluctant to take any new product or service. So, it is up to the marketing manager to convince them of having the product or service. The most difficult part is to persuade them in getting the product or service from your outlet or company. But to survive in the competition, you are responsible for making the sales grow upwards. Thus this is notably different from the other jobs.

I would be good at this for many reasons. Actually, I have been working in this marketing arena for last five years. Thus I have come to know about many factors. I know how to analyse the market and needs of the people. Besides, I also have the experience to deal with some critical factor that helps to determine the success of the product I am dealing with. Furthermore, I know how to set effective marketing strategies considering the needs of the potential consumers at any specific locality. Based on the grounds, I believe that I would be good at this job.

Sample Answer 2:
Everyone wants to have a good job and better salary to lead a standard life. Thus, they are in a race to get a good job. I am not an exception to the race. I have been trying to be a legal advisor here in Greece. But this is not an easy task to establish me in the position. Thank you for the question.

The job of a legal advisor is one of the most prominent one across Greece. A notable number of people are after it because it provides a high return. Almost every organisation and business company and corporation at present require a legal advisor for many of their projects. In fact, they need legal assessments, legal bindings to start a new venture, procedures to move forward with all legal process and more. As a result, all of them are in need of an expert legal advisor for smooth execution of their respective business. 

Being a legal advisor requires a higher academic degree in legal affairs. Besides, you will need to apply your ready wits and common sense more than the other people. In fact, the jobs and responsibilities of a legal advisor are many and handling them together is really tough. So, if you do not have the smartness to deal with everything, you would be unable to be a legal advisor. Moreover, public relation is another important thing to consider. The more you have good public relations, the more the chances of your success increases. As a legal advisor, you will need to be intelligent and apply your analysing capacity to bring out the right solution to any legal problem. A higher level of knowledge on national legal issues and important laws and acts is a must for a legal advisor. Without knowing the legal rules and directives, it is impossible to provide the right solution to the clients.

Advising people and organisations on their legal issues is completely different than the other jobs. Most of the jobs require physical labour to perform the duties and get paid. But this one completely depends on your mental faculty. It works with your brain. Finding the loopholes or weak points is one the major tasks of the profession so that the client could get the job done in a legal manner. Most of the times, the state laws and acts forbid activities of various corporations with the charges of law violation while the legal advisors try to bring a neutral, remarkable and favourable solution by representing documents and evidence in support of their respective clients. So, to bring the solutions, they need to work hard and analyse the available resources and documents. Undoubtedly, the mental labour is harder than the physical ones which make the job dissimilar than the usual ones.

Since my early childhood, I am blessed with a special sense of analysis. I can analyse anything critically and apply my ready wits and knowledge to get a proper solution. Besides, I am skilled in solving problems smoothly which benefits everyone. But the most important aspect that will make me good at this job is that I am having a post-graduate degree in legal affairs. And I have completed my graduation in the similar discipline. So, I firmly believe that if I can keep practising for a couple of years, I could be able to be a very good lawyer or legal advisor by using my skills and expertise. Considering all the reasons, it appears that I really would be good at this job.

I already have a smartphone that comes with better features and configuration than the one I recently purcha…
