My Future Profession (Business Economics)
There are many interesting and
useful professions and it is really not an easy task to choose the right one.
I began to think about my
future profession at the age of 15. My favourite subjects at school were mathematics
and English. My teachers were well-educated people with broad outlook and deep
knowledge of the subjects. They encouraged me in my desire to become an
economist. Now I know well what I'm going to do after leaving school. I didn't
make a blind choice. It was not a sudden flash either. I opted for a career in
business economics. I came to this decision little by little. It was my father
who aroused my interest in that field. You see, he is a chief economist at a
large plant and I often saw him work at home and discuss business matters with
his colleagues. Later I got interested in the matter.
Economics is the science of
making choices, which is based upon the facts of our everyday life. Economists
study our everyday life and the system, which affects it. They try to describe
the facts of the economy in which we live and to explain how the system works.
The science of economics is concerned with all our material needs and wants.
To become a good specialist in
economic matters and business one must know many sciences, such as business
economics, finance and credits, statistics, history of economic theory and
philosophy, mathematics, as well as economic management, trade business and, of
course, marketing, which is a modern philosophy of business.
It is very important for a
specialist in business matters to be a skilful user of computers and to speak
at least one foreign language. It should better be English as it is the most
popular language of international business communication. You'll be able to follow
business developments in the world by listening to radio and TV news, by
reading newspapers or magazines, or by getting in contact with your business
If I pass my entrance exams
successfully and enter the University I'll try to study to the best of my
abilities to achieve my life's ambition and to justify the hopes of my parents.
I also hope that I'll never regret my choice and get a well-paid and
interesting job afterwards.
Maybe I should consider a job
in a world of banking. There's a surprisingly wide range to choose from, in the
financial world. For example, I could work for a big international company, run
my own company, write about economics as a financial journalist, run my own
International Business Research Agency, raise money for charities or just sell
