So let us now imagine that you have landed your first acting assignment. If you have had any training whatsoever, you will of course know what to do – and more importantly, what not to do! For example, it is not a good idea to take a photo of the leading lady without her wig on, or to turn up late on the set. If you haven’t had any training, you can always get a book on film-making, or just follow what everybody else does.

Having been an extra, how do you move on to a supporting role and then eventually to a speaking one? The most common route is to identify or acquire special skills so that you can be considered as a supporting actor. A person who has actually been a nurse, for example, can play a nurse far better than someone fresh out of drama school can. And once you have achieved that first supporting role, your chances of fame will be infinitely greater.

You are going to hear a passage on “Choosing a Career” two times. As you listen to it, try to take notes. You will be given your question sheet after the second reading. You will use your notes to answer the questions in 10 minutes. Your notes won’t be marked.

Choosing a career is one of the hardest jobs you will ever have. You should devote extensive time, energy, and thought to make a decision with which you will be happy. Even though undertaking this task means hard work, view a career as an opportunity to do something you enjoy, not simplyas a necessity or as a means of earning a living. Taking the time to thoroughly explore career opportunities can mean the difference between finding a stimulating and fulfilling career or hopping from one job to the next in search of the right job. Finding the best occupation for you also is important because work influences many aspects of your life – from your choice of friends and recreational activities to where you live.

Doğuş Üniversitesi Proficiency Sınavı Hazırlık 3Choosing a career is work that should be done carefully. As you gain experience and mature, however, you may develop new interests and skills which open doors to new opportunities. Work is an educational experience and can further focus your interests or perhaps change your career preferences. The choice you make today may not be your last. In fact, most people change occupations several times during their careers. With careful consideration of the wide range of occupations available, you should be able to find the right career.

There are many factors to consider when exploring career opportunities and many ways to begin solving your job puzzle. Everyone has certain expectations of his or her job – these may include career advancement, self expression or creativity, a sense of accomplishment, or a high salary. Deciding what you want most from your job will make choosing a career easier.

Identifying your interests will help you in search for a stimulating career. You might start by assessing your likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses. If you have trouble identifying them, consider the school subjects, activities, and surroundings that appeal to you. Would you prefer a job that involves travel? Do you want to work with children? Do you like science and mathematics? Do you need flexible working hours? These are just a few questions to ask yourself. There are no right or wrong answers, and only you know what’s important. Decide what job characteristics you require, which ones you prefer, and which ones you would not accept. Then rank these characteristics in order of importance to you.

Earning potential varies from occupation to occupation, and each person must determine his or her needs and goals. If high earnings are important to you, look beyond the starting wages. Some occupations offer relatively low starting salaries, but earnings substantially increase with experience, additional training, and promotions.

Doğuş Üniversitesi Proficiency Sınavı Hazırlık 3Job setting, working with a specific group of people, geographic location and salaries are just a few occupational characteristics that you may consider. Be open-minded. Consider occupations related to your initial interests. Don’t eliminate any occupation or industry before you learn more about it. Some occupations might create negative images, for example, for some people fashion designers produce a glamorous image while production occupations in manufacturing industries bring to mind a less attractive image. However, jobs often are not what they first appear to be, and misconceptions are common. Exciting jobs may have dull aspects, while less glamorous occupations may interest you once you learn about them. For example, the opportunity to travel makes a flight attendant’s job seem exciting, but the work is tiring: flight attendants stand for long periods and must remain friendly when they are tired and passengers are unpleasant. So in choosing a career, consider all the possible alternatives and decide afterwards.
