Salary or Interest
Upon graduation, all college students will confront the problem of career choice. It is truly a tough choice. Students opinions differ greatly on this issue. Some hold that priority should be given to their interest in jobs, but others take the attitude that salary is the most critical factor influencing their career choices.
As to myself, I prefer the latter view. A well-paid job exerts a tremendous fascination on a great number of people, with no exception to me. Although it might be impossible to measure the value of ones job in terms of money, salary counts most when I choose my future career. And according to my experience, our career choices largely depend on how and where we have been brought up. I come from a poor urban family and my parents were both laid-off workers. In order to finance my tuition, they had been working hard over the past four years. As the only son in my family, I have to shoulder the burden of supporting my family.
In short, salary is the first consideration in my choice of career. (182 words)
