Choosing a career may be one of the hardest jobs you ever have, and it must be done with care. View a
career as an opportunity to do something you love, not simply as a way to earn a living. Investing the time
and effort to thoroughly explore your options can mean the difference between finding a stimulating and
rewarding career and move from job to unsatisfying job in an attempt to find the right one. Work influences
virtually every aspect of your life, from your choice of friends to where you live. Here are just a few of the
factors to consider.
Deciding what matters most to you is essential to making the right decision. You may want to begin
by assessing your likes, dislikes, strengths, and weaknesses. Think about the classes, hobbies, and
surroundings that you find most appealing. Ask yourself questions, such as “Would you like to travel? Do
you want to work with children? Are you more suited to solitary or cooperative work?” There are no right or
wrong answers; only you know what is important to you. Determine which job features you require, which
ones you would prefer, and which ones you cannot accept. Then rank them in order of importance to you.
The setting of the job is one factor to take into account. You may not want to sit at a desk all day. If not,
there are diversity occupation – building inspector, supervisor, real estate agent – that involve a great deal of
time away from the office. Geographical location may be a concern, and employment in some fields in
concentrated in certain regions. Advertising job can generally be found only in large cities. On the other
hand, many industries such as hospitality, law education, and retail sales are found in all regions of the


Hanhtrangvaodaihoc.com

country.
If a high salary is important to you, do not judge a career by its starting wages. Many jobs, such as
insurance sales, offers relatively low starting salaries; however, pay substantially increases along with your
experience, additional training, promotions and commission.
Don’t rule out any occupation without learning more about it. Some industries evoke positive or negative
associations. The traveling life of a flight attendant appears glamorous, while that of a plumber does not.
Remember that many jobs are not what they appear to be at first, and may have merits or demerits that are
less obvious. Flight attendants must work long, grueling hours without sleeps, whereas plumbers can be as
highly paid as some doctors.
Another point to consider is that as you mature, you will likely develop new interests and skills that may
point the way to new opportunities. The choice you make today need not be your final one.
Question 45: The author states that “There are no right or wrong answers” in paragraph 2 in order to

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions from 55 to 64.
Quite different from storm surges are the giant sea waves called tsunamis, which derive their name from
the Japanese expression for "high water in a harbor". These waves are also referred to by the general public
as tidal waves, although they have relatively little to do with tides. Scientists often refer to them as seismic
sea waves, far more appropriate in that they do result from undersea seismic activity.
Tsunamis are caused when the sea bottom suddenly moves, during an underwater earthquake or volcano,
for example, and the water above the moving earth is suddenly displaced. This sudden shift of water sets off
a series of waves. These waves can travel great distances at speeds close to 700 kilometers per hour. In the
open ocean, tsunamis have little noticeable amplitude, often no more than one or two meters. It is when they
hit the shallow water the coast that they increase in height, possibly up to 40 meters.
Tsunamis often occur in the Pacific because the Pacific is an area of heavy seismic activity. Two areas of
the Pacific well accustomed to the threat of tsunamis arc Japan and Hawaii. Because the seismic activity that
causes tsunamis in Japan often occurs on the ocean bottom quite close to the islands, the tsunamis that hit
Japan often comes with little warning and can therefore prove disastrous. Most of the tsunamis that hit the
Hawaiian Islands, however, originate thousands of miles away near the coast of Alaska, so these tsunamis
have a much greater distance to travel and the inhabitants of Hawaii generally have time for warning of their
imminent arrival.
Tsunamis are certainly not limited to Japan and Hawaii. In 1755, Europe experienced a calamitous
tsunami, when movement along the fault lines near the Azores caused a massive tsunami to sweep onto the


Hanhtrangvaodaihoc.com

Portuguese coast and flood the heavily populated area around Lisbon. The greatest tsunami on record
occurred on the other side of the world in 1883 when the Krakatoa volcano underwent a massive explosion,
sending waves more than 30 meters high onto nearby Indonesian islands; the tsunami from this volcano
actually traveled around the world and was witnessed as far away as the English Channel.
Question 55: The paragraph preceding this passage most probably discusses _____.

A. underwater earthquakes B. storm surges

C. tides

D. tidal waves

Question 56: According to the passage, all of the following are true about tidal waves EXCEPT that

_____.
A. they're caused by sudden changes in high and low tides
B. they refer to the same phenomenon as seismic sea waves
C. they are the same as tsunamis
D. this terminology is not used by the scientific community
Question 57: The world "displaced" in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to _____.

A. located

B. filtered

C. moved

D. not pleased

Question 58: It can be inferred from the passage that tsunamis _____.

A. are often identified by ships on the ocean
B. generally reach heights greater than 40 meters
C. are far more dangerous on the coast than in the open ocean
D. cause severe damage in the middle of the ocean
Question 59: As used in the passage, water that is "shallow" in the second paragraph isn't _____.
