One of my friends is a proficient vet. 
At first she did not want to be a vet but a doctor. Then she became a vet and has done it since she graduated from university. 
Because of her proficiency and interest in her job, she has earned a lot of money. She has several stores and very many customers every day. Of course she is richer than me ):!

Yes, my friend's sister works as a cook. The job is well paid and has a lot of benefits besides the salary like a good insurance, etc. but yet she thinks it is really tiring and she doesn't feel comfortable in high temperature. The pressure and the requirements of both employer and customers are difficult to satisfy. I also know managers, and most of them are quite satisfied and happy with the job. They have lots of responsibilities and controlling the human resources is a tricky task. The job requieres much experience and special skills to succeed.

I don't have any friends do this mentioned jobs above but In my opinion, each of jobs has both advantages and disadvantages. Take some instances like: + Manager: a person, a job that can make a killing money but you have lots of pressures from your work, your company and even your employee,... + Waitress: I am used to do this job once and I both like and dislike. When you serve your customers and sometimes you may meet some difficult client and make you in ordeal situations or you do not make any mistakes or wrong but when their mood is not good, they also make difficulties for you. + Cook: you may be a good cook and make a lot of nice food but you can't make all your customer satisfy with your food. Each of people has personal taste and sometimes you can be received complains from them about your food But I think, no matter what job you do. when you choose it choose this job you do you should be passionate to it and try your best to do it.

I don't have friends who work for each job mentioned in this exercise but I know some: - Reporter : it's a very dynamic job who need knowledge about general culture but also in one or differents specific domain. It's also supposed to be very open mind and to know people that can brings to you good news. People who worked as reporter really like to inform people, have relationship and have the possibility to travel with their job and meet different sort of people. But it's hard because you have to be on call sometimes on week-ends and you also have to verify very well your informations. - Waitress : it's also a very dynamic job. You to work in the evening and sometimes end your day very late. You also have to be very carefull with customers as you are the representant of the restaurant in their eyes. People working as waitress like to meet people from differents sorts. - Manager : You are between direction and employees that you manage. So you can have a lot of stress on your back. Person I know as manager doesn't have a very specific knowledge but is really efficient in communication and is a very natural organised person that it's helping a lot for this job.

My young cousin is an airplane engineer. He is graduated recently and he loves it. He has big dreams in his mind and attempts hard to achieve them. My aunt was a successful teacher and two years ago is retired. Our family has a friend who is a handyman. Absolutely he is one of the best. He is creative, fast and he has a lot of knowledge about many things. Mostly he can repair anything. He is called a handyman but I can say he is a carpenter, plumper, mechanic, artist, painter, etc.
