Johny always worked hard while colleague, Alice didn’t . Surprisingly, Alice was always the best worker in the company. Therefore, Johny decided not to work hard anymore. First, every morning he had a cup of coffee and listened to music. Afterward, when the afternoon came, he did his work just a littler bit. Furthermore, he forced someone else to do his work. Then, in the evening, he surfed the Internet for entertainment instead of working like the others. He also finished work early and began work late. And everyday was the same. Consequently, his work result got worse. However, he thought he was going to be the best worker like Alice by that way. But that was wrong. Suddenly someone told the boss that Johny was lazy in working. As a result, he was fired. He didn’t know one thing that Alice almost worked hard at night instead of day. Through this realistic story, we’ve got a lesson: “ Don’t care about the others whether they work hard or not, yourself has to work hard anyway to get success”.

I applied for this job for two years and finally I worked in the company as an intern. I worked hard and one day, my boss said I’m in charge of managing the sales team. If I work well then I’ll get the job. At first, I thought it would be easy. However, it was more difficult than I thought because the people in the sales team always consider revising the opinions of each other and they fought a lot so i can’t do anything to improve the problems. I’ve to choose between fixing it to get the job or get fire from it but I can’t put up with them anymore. As a result, it can’t be help and I got sacked after that so now I’m looking for a better job.

*Looking for a job*
Nick was an unemployed person who has just been out of a job because he was so lazy. After that, he walked along the street and looked for a better job without under pressure. He looked at every shops, company,... and finally, he decided to apply for a job at the 69's hotel. Later on, he went to the hotel and looked for the manager. Then, he didn't see the manager so he went around to find informations about the job. While he was going around the hotel, the manager came in and asked him what he needed. Therefore, the interviewer- a receptonist- interviewed him. Because of his bad preparation, he couldn't answer any questions of the interviewer. But the hotel manager really needed a cleaner and he was the only one person who was interviewed so the manager offered Nick to do that job. Nick agreed and the following day, he started working for the hotel. At first , he promised to work hard in order to get a higher salary but, in fact, he was becoming lazy day by day. After a few days, the manager asked him to work harder or he would be fired. And then, he was still lazy, slept in work time, … and of course, he was sacked from that job as a result. In conclusion, we want to say to you that laziness doesn’t bring you any good things.
PAIR: Henry and Robert.

Last year, I had a stupid thought that was to have a job. Therefore, I applied for my dream jobs. First, I went to a restaurant to be a chef, but I was too young to cook so I had to wash dishes. I worked hard everyday but the pay wasn’t good. Hence, I dealt with my boss to have higher salary. As a result, I was fired. Then, I tried another work in a café because I thought I was suitable with their requirements. But I was wrong, I was just good enough to be a waitress. At first, I didn’t want to do that but the pay was OK so I tried for a week. My job started going wrong when I went to work late and broke glasses, I had to pay a lot of money. Consequently, I sacked from my job, but I didn’t give up yet. I did another work that is my job now: I sold handmade things. I realized that I was too confident and I didn’t have enough experience to work when I applied for my jobs in the restaurant and the café. Now, I am very happy to be my own boss and can make a lot of money by myself.

Jodie Lee is a student from Lawrenceville University. She is hunting for a job  in order to get a better job in the future. However,she can not apply for the jobs just because: She is Asian. Jodie is extremely worried. One day, when a man from Sky Group read her CV, he loves it and the also Sky Group loves it. They wants to make a deal with Jodie, but Jodie's bad luck is not over. She has to work under pressure ten hours a day. Of course, the young girl cannot stand on it so she comes back to her homeland-Korea and be incharge of a big supermarket. Certainly,this job is much easier than the job in the USA. Overall, Jodie sends us a message that: Just do the job that you re interested in then you will find your joy.

Anna is going to apply for a job. She was sacked from her previous job because she didn’t have enough experience for that job. She works hard but she need to be more patient. She is good at working alone, however she still need the ability to work in group. For example: she has to deal with other people to give the last decision. And she must has responsibility about what she’s doing. It means, if there are any mistake, it’s all her fault. Besides that, there was a new partner with her, so she must try her best to get a promotion or she’ll be out of her job.

Jessabelle had worked as a part of a successful sales team before she got sacked from it.She was the
secretary of the team who just had to be in charge of the contracts,sat at one place typing mail and
arranging other stuff.Meanwhile other peopel had to work their back off to get ideas and tried thier best to deal with peopel .Athough having a easy job ,she didn't work hard at all .In fact as a result of being an untidy and lazy secretary ,she lost the team's important contract once and that caused them a huge damage in money .Lucky her they gave her a choice ,to quit the job or to pay the lost money .And of course, she chose to leave so she is hunting for a new job now.But I'm sure with that working attitude, she'll nerver get one!
