Read the text «My future profession» and answer the questions.
Text A My future profession Choosing your future profession or trade is a difficult choice, but an important one; nobody else can make it for you. I want to tell you about my plans for the future. I would like to work with people rather than with figures and numbers. I want to travel much and see other places and meet different people. One of the opportunities for this is to work for a foreign enterprise in Russia or to work abroad for a big national company. You also travel much if you work for the travel agency. It is logical. And as far as I know, this kind of job is well paid.
Of course, it is quite difficult to qualify for such a job. You need a very good educational level and good command of spoken and written foreign language, computer skills and, finally, some experience. I also think that it is quite impossible to have a sufficient level of English after finishing the. It is also necessary to have classes outside the college. University because two or four hours a week is not enough and the groups are so large as a rule.
One more factor which really helps to have a good command of English is the communication with native speakers. And, of course, reading books in English helps a lot. It is especially useful to read books on marketing, business, economics and management in the original. When one knows the special vocabulary of the subject, it will be much easier to communicate with your colleagues from other countries.
