Model Answer:
They say life has so many surprises for us and we have to be ready to embrace them no matter the consequences. This is why we have to be prepared to deal with bad situations while also enjoying the good things that happen to us. Thank you for this excellent topic, and here I'll share an event when something nice occurred to me.

I graduated from university around 3 years ago and was desperately looking for a decent job. But it was not easy to manage a job in a good company, especially for a fresher like me, who had no prior work experience. My parents' expectations and my economic burdens made the situation even worse for me, and I was getting a bit depressed after trying for a job for at least six months or so. At that time, which would be around 2 and a half years ago from now, a university friend of mine called and informed me that their company was looking for a few fresh and energetic graduates to work in its sales force. It was great news, to say the least, and exactly what I was looking for at that time.

This friend of mine joined a large telecom company and was promoted to the sales manager position. So when he called to give me the news of a possible job vacancy, it was certainly good news. This good news turned out to be one of the greatest events of my life when I successfully secured the job in this very company.

Well, to get the job, I had to apply for it, take a written test and then face an interview. Obviously, I had to do well to convince the authority that I was a deserving candidate. I also believe my friend's recommendation helped me to some extent - for which I will always be grateful to him.

As for how I felt, I was ecstatic and relieved to get the job. When I got a call from the HR manager of the company and learned that I was selected for the position, I could not believe it! The excitement of securing the first job in our life is something special, and I was happy to a great extent. I was also proud that my parents would no longer worry for me the way they used to do up until that point. It was indeed a great event.
