A good career for me would be a bricklayer. Bricklayers make a lot of money but

it's also a lot of work. It's a job that most people wouldn't necessarily enjoy but on the

other hand you would make a lot of money, about $14-$18 an hour. (WOIS p ) A quote

from my sister who works at Big Kmart is, "People work at jobs they don't enjoy just so

they can make a lot of money." I think I could do the job well. Three reasons I think I

could do the job well are, I'm a good worker, I have a lot of energy, and I know a lot

about bricks. With these three reasons in mind, it would be good to think of a bricklayer

as a career for me. I think that I would be a really good bricklayer.



        I'm a good worker. If you were to give me a job to do then I would do it and do it

well. If I'm focused and determined to do the job, I will get the job done successfully.

That's pretty much all there is to it. If you told me to build a wall out of bricks, for

example, I'm the kind of person who will be right on the job. I'll just start working then

I'll work until the wall or whatever it may be is built. Now everyone has days that they

are tired but they still have to work. Let's say I was tired, I would work not only because

I had to but because I would care so much about my job to do my absolute best.



        For my whole life I have had a somewhat large amount of energy. That means

that I can do something for a long period of time, without getting tired. Bricklayers work

different amounts of hours all the time. It depends on the project and on who you are

working for. A lot of bricklayers are self employed so they work what they want to. So

it really depends on what exactly you are doing (WOIS p ). I could work long hours, that

is another reason why I'd be good at my job. Most people would hire you for the job if

they know that you will get the job done in a reasonable amount of time doing a fair job.

My sister says that, "One of the most important aspects about a job is having a good

reputation. If your boss knows you will do the job and do it well then you should be

successful at your job." That is what I would do.



        I know a lot about bricks. Just think of all the new things I could learn, with

training. With the right training I would be able to put the bricks in and know where they

would look the best. I think I'd be good at that because I'm good at drawing things out to

see what it is going to look like. I could draw a picture of a brick path for instance and it

would be good. What I was saying before, I know a lot about where bricks would look

good right now, so when I'm like 25 I would know a lot because I would get trained to do

it well. A high school diploma is not needed to become a bricklayer. Most people attend

a vocational school to learn a lot about the occupation. Or they get an apprenticeship

with someone and get a lot of training through that (WOIS p ).



        In conclusion I would be a good bricklayer because I'm a good worker, I have a

lot of energy, and I know a lot about bricks. For these three reasons alone are good

points and examples why I would be a good bricklayer. There are other reasons too, but I

just feel that these are the strongest ones. I would be a fantastic bricklayer.
