Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “describe a paid job that you or a friend enjoyed doing ” topic

I remembered working as an IT helpdesk assistant while I was in college and I really enjoyed doing it.  Although I was a business major at that time, I still applied for a position at the IT helpdesk because it was the best-paid job on campus. As an IT assistant, I helped other students sort out problems with their personal laptops. Besides, I assisted professors and faculties to set up projectors, fixing printers and copy machines on campus, and anything related to technical matters in general. – There were 5 other students who were in the same position as me. We usually registered work hours based on our own personal schedule, as long as the total working hours met the job requirement. For one shift, there were usually two assistants, so that we could help each other out if necessary. – I loved working at the IT helpdesk for many reasons. First of all, I learned a lot about computers and other machines. Secondly, I got a chance to talk with many people around campus and it felt great when you were able to help somebody with their problems.
