This type of job attracts me because it has flexible working hours and conditions to a certain extent. I’m not sure about all translators but most of them get to enjoy flexible working hours be it working at home or a freelance translator where you only get to work at certain timing. My own preference is jobs without fixed hours such that nine-to-five job is not for me as I feel that it is mundane to do the same thing all the time.
Furthermore, the nature of the job covers a wide range of topics and face many unexpected challenges with every project that comes. Hence, I will not feel dull and bored with the job and have the thought of experiencing something new.
I find that there were not much career prospects shown on the Myskillsfuture website hence i went on to do some research on the internet. i found out that there is limitless career opportunities as a translator. Translator is a job that provides opportunities along the way to mould my career path according to my passion and interest. i can choose to open my own agency when i gain insights and experience about the field in the future or i can continue working as a translator based on past work experience or academic background for loyal customers to also earn stable income.
Last but not least, the pay for the job is also relatively high with ample experience. Of course, we should not work for money but passion. I feel that interest is the most important reason while money comes secondary. However, we should also earn enough to be able to support ourselves and family. Set a balance between dream and reality is of paramount importance too.
