IELTS Cue Card Sample 338 - Describe the career you hope to have in the future

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe the career you hope to have in the future.

You should say:

  • what the job is
  • what is involves
  • why you chose it

and explain why you are interested in this job.

Model Answer:
Today I am going to talk about my Dream Job for the future. I am going to tell you what the job is, what it involves and why I’d like to do it. My dream job would be to be a travel writer!

Travel writers are often self-employed. They travel to interesting places and then write in magazines and newspapers. They also write the internet articles about their experiences. To do this job you have to be willing to go to lots of new places. You also need to be able to write fluently and in different styles for different publications. Travel writers must be very flexible, as you might need to go to difficult or uncomfortable places and to travel at short notice. Often travel writers need to have another job a well, as, unfortunately, you can’t really make a living out of this type of work.

The reason I would like to do this job so much is that I love going to new places. Coming to Vietnam has been a new and wonderful experience for me. I would enjoy telling other people what it was like and encouraging them to go on an adventure of their own. I also like communicating ideas in writing, it would be wonderful to make a living out of the two things I enjoy most – travel and writing!

Unfortunately, there are very few opportunities to make a living as a travel writer, so I think it might have to stay as my Dream Job, rather than my Real Job! Even so, I think it is important to have a dream, because otherwise how can you ever have a dream come true!
