Speaker A: I’m a writer. I write articles for newspapers and magazines, uhm…film reviews, you know, uhm, and occasionally some fiction, poems and short stories. It’s very nice to work at home, of course, and, and have the choice of when to work. But I work long hours at home, usually ten hours or more a day, and it’s very lonely sometimes, sitting in front of a computer. At the moment I’m actually doing something very different from my usual work. I’m writing a biography of Leonard Benson, the jazz musician.
Speaker B: I work in the estimating department which means I have to work out exactly how much a job will cost. The way it works is like this. A company or more probably a country, wants, say, an airport or a bridge or a hospital. They employ a consultant engineer to design it. Then someone has to build it, and this is what our company is, a builder. I inspect the documents, examine the site where the building is to be, and name the price. If our price is the most attractive, and usually this means the lowest, we get the contract.
Speaker С: I like getting up early in the morning. If I live to be 80, I’ll say it’s because of the fresh air and getting up early, and doing physical work. This means a lot to me because I’ve always been an active type of person and an early bird. I used to help the milkman when I was at school. Another good thing, of course, is that I finish early. It’s nice to look at other people going to work with their briefcases and things, and think, ‘Well, I’ve done over half my work, I’ll be finished at lunch time’.
Speaker D: I never liked it — hated it in fact — stuck in an office all day with computers and a telephone. But when I lost my last job, my hobby became my full-time job. Now I start work very early, er… in summer I usually leave home about 5.30 in the morning but in winter not until about 8.00.1 have a small van, and I carry all my tools and equipment in that. It’s autumn now so I’m tidying the garden. Every season is so different and I love them all. I just love working outside in the open air after all those years in a stuffy office
Speaker E: I think my job is one of the most rewarding though it may seem difficult and non prestigious to somebody. I take care of sick and injured people, give them medicine and treat wounds. Very often I am expected to give emotional support to my patients and their families. Of course, sometimes my work can be stressful. I often have to help many patients at once. Besides I spend a lot of time walking and standing. I also need to be careful in order to stay safe because sometimes I care for people who have diseases that I can catch.
Speaker F: For an amateur musician, playing an instrument or singing in a choir can be the highlight of the week. Being a professional musician, however, often involves practicing even when we have no desire to do so or writing music when we are completely out of ideas. I have no doubts that those who choose composing as a profession do it out of love but surviving in the profession can be extremely taxing, particularly when confronted with deadlines.
