Describe one of your favorite songs.
You should say:
what the song is about
when you listened to this song for the first time
how often you listen to this song
and explain why you like this song so much
I’d like to talk about a beautiful song called the Balloon from Jay Chou, one of the famous pop singers in China.
As a very typical pop song, the Balloon talks about a romantic story happens between a young couple who live in a city in France.
I remember that I listened to the song right after it was released in the summer of 2016. As a huge fan of the singer Jay Chou, I bought that newest album and downloaded it into my mobile without any hesitation. After listening to every single track in the album, I found the Balloon was absolutely the most impressive one with a fairly catchy melody and decent lyrics.
During that period of time, I often played the song at home or in the office, sometimes I even replayed it for the whole afternoon just because it seemed that everyone around me thought the lovely rhythm of the song would bring him or her a good mood. By the way, it could also remind me of the old, sweet days I had back in Australia.
However, recently I seldom listen to this song simply because Jay Chou has published some new hits in this January and they are of high quality as well.
As for the reason why I like the Balloon so much, I believe it’s mainly because it’s one of the best hits of Jay Chou in recent years and it proves that he’s still an excellent singer. You know, before the advent of the song, numerous people started to criticize him for not being as creative as he was. But I do believe he will actually come back with better works in the near future.
Many employers think that the social skills are as important as good qualifications for employing people. Do you agree or disagree?
Employers these days require applicants to possess comprehensive capabilities, including not only specialized knowledge but also social skills facilitating interaction and communication. Although this seems to be a high expectation, becoming an all-round person not only benefits the individual oneself but the companies as well.
On the one hand, qualification is a stepping stone for a person to his or her dreamed career, while social skill is essential for individual’s growth within the working environment. Qualifications, the attributes gained from the talents, educations, and accumulated experiences, decide whether or not an individual could be competent enough for a certain position or a field of work; at the meantime, excellent social skills, enable the person to become compatible and fitted within the team and the company. For example, to become a successful architect, in addition to the one’s professional understandings about the physics of force in constructions---the basic skills to accomplish job requirements, well-developed social abilities such as interacting and cooperating with colleagues could help the person to learn, to acquire inspirations, and eventually to grow up. Therefore, both skills are significant in terms of personal development.
On the other hand, employees equipped with both professional and interpersonal skills are valuable assets to organizations. Specifically, the qualified applicants contributing their knowledge and experience to the jobs would help the employers develop the business. Simultaneously, sociable workers resemble lubricant, which could smooth and strengthen the organizational connections and communications. Definitely, it is advantageous for companies to recruit employees who are capable of tackling the job tasks and interacting effectively with others.
Admittedly, there exists some limited positions where knowledge and profession are being more emphasized. However, encountering the fiercer social competition today, those who are only skilled at specialized field may find it rather difficult to establish a foothold in a company, not to mention in the wider society; instead, sophisticated people are more competitive in job hunting and promotion. Meanwhile, the organizations could take advantages of bringing in integrated talents in order to become stronger when competing with the peers.
