Following in a Parent's Footsteps
It is undeniable that we live in a world in which people have to choose a job to earn their livelihoods. The issue of whether or not people should choose jobs similar to their parents' arouses much controversy among people with different backgrounds and perspectives. When it comes to me, I, at least for two reasons, go with those who believe that choosing jobs similar to our parents' jobs is better for us. In what follows, I make my reasons clear.
First of all, going with jobs similar to our parents', we can become professional faster. As parents have been dealing with their jobs for a long time, they are experienced and professional in their jobs. as a result, if we choose a job similar to their jobs, they can teach their knowledge about the job to us and make us professional and experienced very soon. For the purpose of illustration, take my personal experience as an example. Two years ago, when I was seeking for a job, I chose petroleum engineering for my career, which my father is profession in. In this recent two years, I could learn all things regarding my career from my father, and currently, I am the best engineer in the company. If I had not chosen a similar job with my father's, I would have never been professional this soon.
Secondly, going with jobs similar to our parents' jobs prevents us from facing big problems and catastrophes. It goes without saying that in doing any job, we can face with unpredictable problems, which can lead us to become defeated and lose our money. However, by going with a job which our parents know many things about, they can make us aware of those potential problems and suggest good ways to eliminate facing of them. For instance, When I started my job as a petroleum engineer, my father advised me that every two hours I should check the pressure gauges which mounted on top of streamlines. Even though my boss had forgotten to tell me that tip, I did my job perfectly and prevented any problems from occurring.
According to reasons mentioned above, I strongly believe that children should choose jobs that are similar to their parents', because not only can the parents help them to become professional very soon, but also they can eliminate the possibility for occurring any serious problem in our career life.
