Yes, I know several people who have these jobs.
Yes, they like these jobs because these jobs are important to help other people in the world.

i know a person is reporter and i like to be a reporter.

My friend is a pilot who works in an one of the biggest airline in Turkey. His working time is changeable, sometimes his flight was at 02:00 am, sometimes 5:pm and the flight times are different. He stays at the arrived city rarely. After he comes back from long flight, he sleeps all day and wakes up the next day seldomly. His life is not regular or monotone. After all he loves his job. He could go diffent cities, countries, see other cultures, eat exotic foods, meet foreings.

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 know some people who work as carpenters, in conics, managers, they like their work.

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.

Yes. I knew. Yes, they did. They cherished the job as its their profession and so much had passion as well as interest for the job.

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.

Yes, I know several people who do this jobs. For example me good friend work as a workman in a warehouse. He likes this job, but I don't know why. My another mate is a cook, but he don't like very much this job. He said this is hard work, He works many hours every day.
