IELTS Speaking Part-3 Choosing work & Work-Life balance

Q. 1. What kinds of jobs do young people not want to do in your country? Answer: Well, you know, in my neck of the woods, we've got this ongoing issue with job scarcity for the younger crowd. So, there aren't a ton of jobs they'd willingly give a go. From what I've gathered, gigs like "outside sales," being a "medical rep," and those service-oriented roles that clock in long hours don't exactly top the list for our young guns. Oh, and the whole teaching kiddos thing, especially in elementary school, is a bit of a tough sell. Patience, you see, is a virtue not everyone is blessed with, especially when dealing with the little rascals.


Q. 2. Who is best at advising young people about choosing a job: teachers or parents? Answer: In my books, teachers take the cake when it comes to guiding young blood on job choices. They're the unsung heroes in schools and colleges, tirelessly working to unlock the potential in these youngsters. Plus, with the constant back-and-forth in classes, teachers are better placed to suss out the skills and talents of the youth, making them the ideal folks to steer them toward gigs that suit them like a glove.


Q. 3. Is money always the most important thing when choosing a job? Answer: Nah, I don't buy into the notion that money is always the holy grail when picking a job. I mean, sure, it's crucial, but it doesn't guarantee a one-way ticket to cloud nine or job satisfaction. Even if I'm rolling in dough, if what I do isn't considered "important," it's like trying to catch a fish with a broken net. Money's a piece of the puzzle, no doubt, but it's not the be-all and end-all when it comes to job satisfaction.


Q. 4. Do you agree that many people nowadays are under pressure to work longer hours and take fewer holidays? Answer: Oh, absolutely! Loads of folks these days are in the hot seat, grappling with the demand for longer hours and a vacation that's more elusive than a pot of gold. It's mainly because they're caught in the rat race, trying to keep pace with the skyrocketing cost of living. Some are stuck in the grind because they're being squeezed dry by their bosses, while others are willingly putting in overtime to keep up with the Joneses and their penchant for the finer things in life.


Q. 5. What is the impact on society of people having a poor work-life balance? Answer: When folks are teetering on the edge of a poor work-life balance, society takes a hit from all angles. In a world where people are either burning the midnight oil or idling away their time, there's a shortage of responsible citizens steering the ship towards its full potential. Overworking leads to a lack of downtime with family and friends, paving the way for a mental gloom that throws a wrench in the gears of efficiency and productivity. On the flip side, too much idle time breeds a breeding ground for crime and all sorts of anti-social shenanigans.


Q. 6. Could you recommend some effective strategies for governments and employers to ensure people have a good work-life balance? Answer: Well, you see, governments and employers can pull a few tricks out of their sleeves to ensure folks maintain a solid work-life equilibrium. Employers can dish out a bit of "flexibility" with work schedules, allowing employees to squeeze in some quality time with their loved ones. And hey, throwing in some "unpaid time off" for family shindigs wouldn't hurt either. As for the bigwigs in government, they can spread the word through various media outlets, shouting from the rooftops about the perks of a balanced work-life. And why not toss in an "annual award" for companies that go the extra mile in promoting the whole work-life balance shindig? Sounds like a win-win to me!
