Sample answer (1) Describe a person you would like to study or work with
I am an extrovert person.I really love the company of someone whether it is study or work. Here, I’m going to talk about a person with whom I would like to work.
He is none other than my elder brother, Gourav. Currently, he is studying Hotel management in Canada as well as he does part-time work in the same field. He has a strong personality and is responsible for his work.
To be honest, already we have worked together; actually, we used to help our father in his business during our study days. Moreover, his creative mind always led to things being easy for us. In addition, his dedication to work motivated me to work hard in order to get better outcomes from work. Moving further, I would like to work with my brother because he is a wonderful partner for my business.
As I want to open a restaurant in my hometown, and he has lots of experience in this field.
His experience will help to boost business. Also, he is a more trustworthy partner for me. A few months ago, we discussed opening new restaurant in the future and also discussed our roles as well as responsibilities. Besides this, we will keep the name of the restaurant on our parent’s name to make them proud. As soon as he will come back in India after his studies and with an internship, we will start working together. So, this is a person, I would like to work with.
Sample answer (2) Describe a person you would like to study or work with
I love to study and work with those whom I am comfortable with and have excellent bonding. Here I would like to talk about a person whom I would like to work with in the future. Actually, he is none other than my brother and his name is Mani
It is my dream since childhood to set up an educational institute in my area with my brother because he has great skills as well as the natural power to address any kind of hard situation in an easy way. Moreover, he has depth knowledge regarding various subjects and he is one of the multitalented persons in my family.
There are some reasons why I want to open an institute in my area. Firstly, in my hometown, there is not any institute that provides the best quality education to children. Ergo, a number of children in my area are deprived of education. Therefore by opening an institute, we can teach needy and poor children. Actually, when we are together, no one topic remains problematic for us. If we finally work together I will feel over the moon because it will not only make the better for needy and poor children but also make our bonding strong.
