IELTS Cue Card Sample 359 - Talk about a job that you would like to try

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

Talk about a job that you would like to try.

You should say:

  • what the job is
  • what skills are necessary to do this job
  • is it a good job in your country?

and explain why you would like to work in this job.

Model Answer:
One of my passions from my teenage was to be an explorer, many people like Steve Austin, Bear Grills etc. really inspires me.  The way they explore new places, forests, remote islands, they hunt food, they illustrate survival skills techniques etc. are simply amazing.  I spend hours watching them on TV and YouTube.

Though it is not a well-known profession, I think it will need education on nature and environment and biology and botany I guess? But the basic skill would be your knowledge on tackling those situations you are in.  Like how to get away with the dangers you may face during the exploration like wild animals, poisoned plants and all. It’s fun to watch but quite intimidating when you are in there!! I remember an episode of survivor series by Bear Grills where he had to drink his own urine to survive, from dehydration in a desert, then one place where he had seen off a grizzly in an open place, maybe you might run out of panic in that situation, but you could deal it well if you know how to and with your presence of mind.  It’s full of thrill!!  Such kind of situation really animates me!! It’s my passion and dream to have such a job. This offers the opportunity to live the life to its fullest.

But unfortunately, in India, my home country, such a profession doesn’t exist! I never heard of any Indian explorer of such kind. A wildlife photography would be the closest profession practised in India to this. It is not popular in our country and there is little chance that it would become popular in the near future. To grade it good or bad- it’s really difficult due to this. Again compared to an engineer or a doctor no one would appreciate such a profession in India except people like me who have a passion for exploring.

I love to be an explorer as I said before, one reason I guess is that it is a job that satisfies my quest or hunger to explore. I really enjoy seeing myself in such sought of situations and adventure really thrills me. Maybe it is innate in my DNA!
