Taking advantage of living in Melbourne, which is the third most popular city among International students following New York and London, I interviewed International students about their lives, jobs, etc. This article is the start of the series and I am going to write about their jobs this time.
One of the most common concerns of students is probably ‘what we are going to do for a living’. It is hard for us to imagine what we are going to do in the future. My interview with International students about their full-time jobs in their countries is helpful in thinking about your future job.
First, I want to introduce a Brazilian writer, Odir Ricardo Brandao Do Souto.
Job: Editor, Writer. Entertainment area, such as video games, cinema
Q: When did you decide to be a writer?
A: Since I was a child, my writings were often admired by teachers and I started thinking of journalism as my future job.
Q: How did you get your job?
A: When I submitted my first article about a game to a magazine company, they offered me a job as a writer.
Q: When did you feel happy in your job?
A: When I saw my article and my name in the magazine.
I also felt happy when I became the editor and was choosing contributions rather than just being a contributor
Q: What is the most difficult part of your job?
Making a report to camera. When I first reported a game event, my hand – and the microphone – was shaking all the time.
Q: Did you find it difficult to have time to yourself?
Yes, because we have a strict deadline and sometimes have to work all night, but I really enjoy it. I think I am kind of a workaholic. However, I usually manage to have one day off work every Sunday and it almost works.
Q: Do you have any advice for students who want to become a writer?
