Talk about your dream job - A pharmaceutical scientist


Oh, a dream job? I’ve thought about it quite a lot and that’s why I’m pretty sure I’d like to become a pharmaceutical scientist. Even though I haven’t achieved it, I would like to tell you about my journey to get a foot in the field. To clarify, it’s different from pharmacists with whom you usually interact when you need a prescription. A pharmaceutical scientist’s role is to discover novel drugs or develop therapeutics.

So how did I come up with that idea? It began with my genuine passion for therapeutics. I remember being bedridden for months with severe bacterial bronchitis in the pediatric department. I got better only after I tried a new antibiotic. I was really curious how one medication had improved my condition when others had failed. How and why did the drug work? What is the chemistry and biology behind all of this?

I was drawn to Chemistry and Biology since then and I knew I had to pursue a degree in biotechnology in college to understand how life sciences and technology tackle the real-life challenge. During my undergraduate year, I learned how to become a team player and adapt to a heavy schedule to maintain a work-life balance.

Also, I have gained hands-on research experience with molecular and cellular experiments that I was attracted to the complex interactions between inflammation and tumor progress. I was thinking a lot about the increasing burden of cancers in Vietnam over the last decades which has exhibited the highest rates of cancer mortality (in lung cancer). So I hope to pursue graduate studies and an R&D position to develop novel therapeutics and contribute to minimizing this public health issue in the near future.

Từ vựng:

  • A genuine passion: một niềm đam mê thực sự

  • Therapeutic [ˌθɛrəˈpjuːtɪk] (n): liệu pháp

  • Bedridden [ˈbɛdrɪd(ə)n] (a): nằm liệt giường

  • Bacterial bronchitis [bakˈtɪərɪəl brɒŋˈkʌɪtɪs ] (n): viêm phế quản do vi khuẩn

  • Pediatric [piːdɪˈatrɪk] (a): nhi khoa

  • Tackle the real-life challenge: giải quyết thách thức trong cuộc sống thực

  • A team player (n): một người tích cực đóng góp cho nhóm của họ để hoàn thành nhiệm vụ, đạt được mục tiêu hoặc quản lý các dự án.

  • Adapt [əˈdapt] (v): hòa nhập

  • A work-life balance (n): cân bằng giữa công việc và cuộc sống

  • Hands-on experience (n): kinh nghiệm thực tế

  • Complex interactions (n): tương tác phức tạp

  • Cancer mortality (n): tử vong do ung thư

Talk about your dream job - A teacher


Since I was a kid, I have developed a passion for English. I love watching English romantic movies about the Victoria era, reading books such as Sherlock Holmes written by the English author Conan Doyle. Therefore, I choose teaching English to be my worthwhile career in the future.

After spending 4 years studying the English language at the university, I plan to go to the UK to earn a TESOL degree, which is all about the training course of teaching English. 

The job of an English teacher requires intimate knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, and syntax as well as the ability to communicate and interact well with the students.

I think this job suits me well because I love teaching children. At home, I often teach English and literature to my younger sisters. When educating young children, I think I can evoke their enthusiasm and interest in English by creating a favorable environment for learning and organizing meaningful and fun activities. 

Besides teaching language, I can help my students understand better about English culture, which is essential for them to become international citizens. I'm fascinated to support them in developing both hard skills. 

Being a teacher is my ideal job, but I know there are lots of difficulties on the way. However, I'm sure I can fulfil my dream. I will try my best to improve my knowledge and skills in order to be a successful teacher.

Từ vựng:

  • passion: đam mê

  • Enthusiasm: lòng nhiệt tình

  • Favorable: thuận lợi

  • Interact with: tương tác với

  • International citizens: những công dân toàn cầu

  • Fulfil my dream: thực hiện được ước mơ

Talk about your dream job - Becoming a lawyer


My desire is to become a lawyer. Lawyers are respected in my country. In addition, it can help me earn a good living.

To be honest, there are a lot of reasons why I intend to become a lawyer. I was impressed by a legal film that I watched 2 years ago. In the film, lawyers are very cool. For the sake of the poor and underprivileged, they speak up to protect their legitimate rights and interests. That's why I admire them so much.

Becoming a lawyer is a fascinating career that has to do with giving those in need of legal assistance and support services. The individuals doing the work are highly skilled and appreciated by the public.

A skilled lawyer may need a variety of abilities, such as public speaking, given that part of his job involves delivering speeches in front of crowds. The ability to think critically and be creative are two of the most essential traits of a good lawyer.

Therefore, I worked extremely hard to get into Law University in order to realize my dream. A large number of students in Vietnam are also working on their legal degrees. After graduation, I plan to be employed by a legal firm or develop a relationship with larger businesses to serve as an in-house attorney.

I know this career is full of challenges and difficulties. However, I’m determined that I will put all of my efforts to achieve it.

Từ vựng:

  • Earn a good living: xoay sở cuộc sống

  • Underprivileged: những người yếu thế

  • Legitimate: hợp pháp

  • Legal assistance: trợ giúp về pháp lý

  • Attorney: luật sư

  • In-house: nội bộ

Talk about your dream job - Singer


I adore music and love performing in front of audiences, so my career goal is to become a singer. 

I’m keen on listening to different kinds of musical genres. Even though I can listen to any kind of music, Lana Del Rey is my all-time favourite. She not only has a melancholic voice but she is also a kind person. She has set a good example for me to become a singer.

First, I think I have to develop my singing and performance skills to become a singer. That's I have enrolled in a vocal class to improve my singing and songwriting abilities here. Appearance is crucial to a singer, too. I know it's hard for a singer to always keep their body in good shape. However, without an attractive appearance, a singer can not gain the attention of the audience.

Moreover, I believe a singer must have the ability to cope with stress and crisis. Sometimes, a star is criticized for their career or even for personal issues, so it's important to not panic and plan strategies to deal with the backlash, especially on social media.

Confidence is one of my advantages, and I think it is another important quality for a singer. This quality can help a singer in marketing themselves and their music to fans on social media or to prospective managers.

I have to learn and practice more to become a singer. One day, I believe my dream will become true. 

Từ vựng:

  • Songwriting: sáng tác nhạc

  • Set a good example: là tấm gương

  • Keep body in good shape: giữ dáng

  • Crisis: khủng hoảng

  • Backlash: phản ứng dữ dội

Talk about your dream job - A computer programmer


In the future, I want to be a computer programmer, who specializes in computers and programming. 

This job is about writing and testing the code for applications and software. To put it another way, my actual job is to use my computer programs to simplify life and the operation procedure.

Computer programmers often regularly aid in troubleshooting sections of a website or computer software that are not operating properly. Their duty is to rapidly spot and fix problems, which are frequently the result of a coding fault. Besides, I'm also interested in the cybersecurity field, helping to detect harmful software and fix programs that may be hacked.

As a computer programmer, I must be able to work well in a team because when developing a program, I must explain difficult technical ideas to my colleagues and non-technical customers. Hence, one of the key factors is communication. 

More than that, this industry is changing rapidly. Every year, there are various new technology invented. I have to develop my soft skills, such as self-study to stay up with these changes. 

I'm pursuing a bachelor's degree in information technology. At university, I learn about programming languages, such as Java, C++...

Now I’m partnering with some businesses to help them fix software programs. At the same time, I'm creating my portfolio to demonstrate my ability and enhance my employability in the future. I would like to work remotely, which means I can work anywhere, as long as I have an Internet connection and a laptop.

Từ vựng:

  • Put it another way: nói cách khác

  • Operation procedure: quy trình vận hành

  • Coding fault: lỗi lập trình

  • Stay up with: bắt kịp

  • Software: phần mềm

  • Portfolio: hồ sơ năng lực

Talk about your dream job - Football player


A football player who can compete in numerous championships and tournaments is my dream job.

When I was 13, I joined a football academy in my local. The academy is equipped with cutting-edge facilities, which help me practice and compete at any level. More importantly, I was taught tactics and techniques used in a football game.

To play professionally, it's important for me to devote all my effort and enthusiasm to the game. It may seem as though Lionel Messi simply appeared and performed magic when he scored, but it is the result of countless hours of effort. Although the road won't always be easy, I think my desire will give me the strength to get through the frustrating and difficult times.

In addition, a football player should learn about the sport as much as he can. I often watch games, study books, and speak with professional players to understand the rules and strategies. Learning how successful players have achieved their success also helps me progress in my career.

To keep my body in good shape, I practice running a few kilometres every day. Sometimes, I try to incorporate jogging and riding into my exercise. It's also important to follow a strict diet including fish, eggs, fruit and vegetables, and avoid sugar and junk food.

This sport teaches me how to perform skilful movements like dribbling, turning and passing. Moreover, I love playing football because it requires a strong sense of teamwork and promotes confidence and self-esteem

Từ vựng:

  • Championship: giải vô địch

  • Tournament: giải đấu

  • Football academy: học viện bóng đá

  • Cutting-edge: hiện đại

  • Keep the body in good shape: giữ dáng

  • Dribble: rẽ bóng

  • Self-esteem: lòng tự trọng

Talk about your dream job - Becoming a chef


My family and friends often appreciate me for my cooking skill and my dishes, so in the future, I think I will become a chef.

I learn about cooking from my mother. She has a wide variety of recipes under her belt and is constantly experimenting with new ones that she sees on cooking shows or reads about in magazines. Mom taught me how to cook after having learned it from her mother, my grandmother when she was a child.

While cooking, I always use fresh and high-quality ingredients. This is the key to tasty, healthful, and beautifully presented dishes.

Most chefs get the skills and knowledge while working those long hours in the kitchen. To become a chef, firstly, I think I will find a job in a restaurant kitchen. Understanding how a kitchen and restaurant operate is crucial to becoming a chef. But I'm also aware that this first position may involve boring tasks like cleaning up after meals and taking out the trash. 

In addition, the job of a chef requires the implementation and maintenance of hygienic procedures to guarantee that a kitchen stays clean and that the food customers receive is safe to eat. Luckily, I'm interested in maintaining the required health and safety standards. 

I feel happy and fulfilled when I see customers enjoy the meal I cook. It motivates me to be more creative and keep up to date with the industry's trends.

It requires a variety of skills needed to be a chef. I'm practising every day to master them one day.

Từ vựng:

  • Under the belt: những kiến thức, kinh nghiệm đã gặt hái được

  • High-quality: chất lượng tốt

  • Hygienic: vệ sinh

  • Motivate: tạo động lực, thúc đẩy

  • Keep up to date: cập nhật

Talk about your dream job - Becoming a marketer


I'm studying marketing at the university, so I have dreamed of becoming a marketer in the future.

I think this job is suitable for me because I'm interested in promoting products and finding effective ways to communicate with customers. Also, this job enables me to build a trusting relationship with clients and the company. You know, trust is difficult to earn these days. Success will be ours once we get it.

As part of my profession, I'll have to use some marketing strategies to stimulate consumer demand. A marketer is also in charge of collaborating with other members of the marketing team to create creative campaigns to promote a business's products, and services and improve brand awareness.

All marketing positions demand some level of creativity because marketing involves working with ideas and enhancing them to reach both potential and current clients. As a result, I think a strong sense of creativity will help me in my marketing career.

The job of marketers is to create clever marketing strategies to persuade consumers to make a purchase, make a charitable contribution, or add new services to their accounts. That's why I'm developing my research skill besides building up my knowledge. 

Finally, communicating is another important trait that helps me be successful in this career. Marketers must communicate well with audiences, team members, key stakeholders, and business executives.... Hence, I have enrolled on some courses to learn how to communicate with these groups clearly and effectively and avoid any issues that may result from bad communication as well.

Từ vựng:

  • Stimulate: thúc đẩy

  • Brand awareness: nhận diện thương hiệu

  • Creativity: sáng tạo

  • Potential: tiềm năng

  • Charitable: thuộc về từ thiện

Talk about your dream job - A doctor


To be a doctor to cure everyone is my dream job.

Every day, in addition to what I already know from school, I frequently read medical books and find out more on medical websites to further my study of specialist information. I enjoy my profession more and more as I gain knowledge. I intend to attend Hanoi Medical University for the upcoming university test. This will help me be qualified to be a professional doctor.

Choosing to become a doctor requires years of committed study and medical training. I know I have a long way to go before becoming a doctor and working in a hospital. 

When enrolling in medical school, I will start a demanding course that equips me with the knowledge needed to become a doctor. In addition to spending a significant amount of time improving hard skills by remembering information on physiological functions, diseases, and recommended treatments, medical students are also expected to acquire critical soft skills.

Being a doctor also requires me to think critically and solve problems in order to discover answers to my patients’ problems. These abilities help me evaluate symptoms, identify diseases, and create treatment plans for patients. These abilities also enable medical professionals to evaluate data and make decisions based on the findings.

I think the combination of abilities, including suitable manners, professionalism and interpersonal skills will help me become a great physician.

Từ vựng:

  • Medical training: đào tạo y khoa

  • Physiological: sinh lý

  • Symptom: triệu chứng

  • Treatment: điều trị

Talk about your dream job - Salesman


I’m interested in business because I’m inspired by my father, who is a successful entrepreneur. When I was a kid, I used to make dolls by myself and sell them to my classmate. As a result, I dream of becoming a salesman.

In addition to studying, I read books and extra research materials to learn more about various selling strategies. I enjoy spending time with my dad when we chat about the market, client needs, and potential challenges. 

My dad told me that I must be confident to become a good salesman. Not every potential consumer will be willing to buy products, so a salesman needs a lot of self-assurance, optimism, and patience to deal with these rejections.

Building relationships with clients and establishing trust both depend on communication. I think it's the most important skill of a salesman. Besides, salespeople must understand the products and the buyers as well. But this goes beyond simply knowing who the consumer is. Instead, it's about figuring out the kind of experience that the buyer wants to have as they think about buying in your area.

I'm also learning psychology besides marketing because psychological strategies can be applied to encourage target customers to buy products. I have found that assuring the client that you won't require too much of their time is very useful.

Now I'm starting my career as a junior salesman. I’m sharpening my skills and improving my knowledge to become a sales executive in the next 5 years.

Từ vựng:

  • Salesperson: người bán hàng

  • Market: thị trường

  • Self - asurance: tự tin

  • Optimism: tự tin

  • Patience: kiên nhẫn

  • Psychology: tâm lý học

Mở rộng Part 3 của chủ đề “Talk about your dream job”

What kinds of jobs do young people not want to do in your country?



Well, let me guess! Probably something’s too tedious and laborious. I think the young generation - my generation, in general, seems bolder and willing to take risks in careers like opening a start-up or being a freelancer. In short, most young people in my country cannot stand a working life with no passion or being stuck behind a desk. Passion and freedom are, perhaps, more important to young people than financial rewards. So, if they see their potential of growing and being themselves in a job, they would probably pursue their ideals.

Câu trả lời:

Chà, để tôi đoán! Có lẽ cái gì đó quá tẻ nhạt và tốn công sức. Tôi nghĩ thế hệ trẻ - thế hệ của tôi, nói chung, có vẻ táo bạo hơn và sẵn sàng chấp nhận rủi ro trong những nghề nghiệp như mở một công ty khởi nghiệp hoặc làm freelancer. Nói tóm lại, hầu hết những người trẻ tuổi ở đất nước tôi không thể chịu được một cuộc sống làm việc không có đam mê hoặc bị mắc kẹt sau bàn giấy. Có lẽ, đam mê và tự do quan trọng hơn đối với những người trẻ tuổi hơn là phần thưởng tài chính. Vì vậy, nếu họ nhận thấy tiềm năng phát triển của mình và là chính mình trong một công việc, họ có thể sẽ theo đuổi lý tưởng của mình.

Who is best at advising young people about choosing a job: teachers or parents?


In my opinion, both parents and teachers should work together to guide young people in their ways of choosing career paths. While teachers can see the potential of a student in an academic environment, parents can support their children in developing their passion in other aspects such as music, arts, fashion, et cetera. Therefore, if teachers and parents can concur and support children’s passion as well as help them to explore their potential, the children will likely be able to make their own career decision.

Câu trả lời:

Theo tôi, cả phụ huynh và giáo viên nên cùng nhau định hướng cho các bạn trẻ cách lựa chọn con đường nghề nghiệp. Trong khi giáo viên có thể nhìn thấy tiềm năng của học sinh trong môi trường học thuật, cha mẹ có thể hỗ trợ con em mình phát triển niềm đam mê ở các khía cạnh khác như âm nhạc, nghệ thuật, thời trang, v.v. Do đó, nếu giáo viên và cha mẹ có thể đồng tình và ủng hộ niềm đam mê của trẻ cũng như giúp trẻ khám phá tiềm năng của mình, trẻ sẽ có thể tự quyết định nghề nghiệp của mình.

Is money always the most important thing when choosing a job?

Answer: Honestly, I don’t think that money is “always” the most important thing when it comes to choosing a job. Although I totally agree that money can somehow buy happiness or it can play an important role when someone decides to take a position, that person should also consider other aspects. Besides financial rewards, job satisfaction, career prospects, and working environment are the three most important things that I’ll take into consideration.

Câu trả lời:

Thành thật mà nói, tôi không nghĩ rằng tiền “luôn luôn” là điều quan trọng nhất khi chọn một công việc. Mặc dù tôi hoàn toàn đồng ý rằng bằng cách nào đó tiền có thể mua được hạnh phúc hoặc nó có thể đóng một vai trò quan trọng khi ai đó quyết định đảm nhận một vị trí nào đó, nhưng người đó cũng nên xem xét các khía cạnh khác. Bên cạnh phần thưởng tài chính, sự hài lòng trong công việc, triển vọng nghề nghiệp và môi trường làm việc là ba điều quan trọng nhất mà tôi sẽ xem xét.
