4. Do you still remember your school days?
Of course! Those were some of the best times in my life. They were absolutely carefree days. I had no or very few worries at school.

5. What do you do for a living?
6. Describe your job in detail.
I am an Engineer working for a large construction company in the city. To be more precise, I specialize in the building of railway bridges. When I am assigned a new bridge-building task, my colleague and I have to travel to the site, have a review of the surroundings, and then decide what type of bridge will be suitable. Lastly, we have to make recommendations to the railway company of all the alternatives, and give them some idea of the costs.
7. Is your job important to you?
Definitely. I can serve my community and my country through my job. For example, when my company builds a new road, many people benefit from our work. At the same time, it makes me feel good about myself. I become financially independent with the salary earned through my job
8. Is your job important to you?
The job means almost everything to me except my family. It provides a chance for me to serve my community and my country. For example, when my company builds a new road, people living along the road benefit from our work. At the same time, I personally get pride and the sense of achievement from the job. After we have completed a road, I am proud to drive on the road with my family and explain to them what was involved during the building of the road.
9. If you could, would you change jobs?
No, not really. What I mean is that I am very happy in my present job. I get along well with my colleagues and my salary is satisfactory. Should I change my job, however, I might not find such nice people to work with and could be very unhappy. What’s more important, I believe I will be able to develop my career here. If I keep up working hard and perform well, I could be promoted to head of a department in two years.
10. If you could, would you change jobs?
Although I am very happy in my present job, I believe one should always be ambitious. That is to say, one should never be complacent, but should be on the lookout for opportunities to advance in your career. Furthermore, I would not hesitate for one moment if I could obtain a promotion by changing jobs. I know one should show some loyalty to his/her present employer, but there has to be a balance between looking after one’s own interests and those of the present employer.
11. Are there possible changes that could affect your job in any way?
There may be some but not many, I believe. The company that I am working for is large and strong. In addition, I have a good relationship with my colleagues and my boss. The only possible change that comes to my mind is I may receive a promotion. That would be a positive development, so I don’t worry about it at all.
