Speaking Part 1: Work


1.What is your job?

I currently work as an office manager at a large marketing company. I’ve been on the job for about five years now. I’m usually assigned to work with a specific business in order to improve their sales through various marketing strategies.

2. How did you get this job?

Well, I am done my Bachelors in technology in Information Technology. So, during the last year, a lot of companies came in for campus recruitment and I got selected at Infosys.

3. Do you have to work with other people?

Oh yes, all the time. It’s a big office and we all have to work as a team if we want to achieve results. I have colleagues I need to liaise with such as the graphic designers and I also have administrative staff who work under me. And of course, I also have to work alongside the companies that we provide marketing for. So yes, I definitely have to work with other people.

4. What do you dislike about your work?

The only thing that I really don’t like about being a software engineer is that apart from being a great job, it is not something very close to my heart. At heart, I am a writer, traveler and a reader. And I would definitely want to do something near to it.

5. Do you think you will change jobs in the future?

Well, that’s not something I’m thinking about at the moment as I really enjoy what I do and it’s a really good company to work for. The pay is good and they have other good benefits such as flexi-time and end of year bonuses. But that said, change is always a good thing, so I can’t see me being there forever. I’m sure I will change one day.
