One thing that has fascinated me from my early university years is the nature of international relationships among different countries. Undoubtedly, this is a very complicated subject, and the brightest minds can penetrate it. On the other hand, I am not even remotely as bright as those who handle this complicated job so well. But, that doesn’t prevent me from wishing to become an International Relationship Expert in the future.
So, what does an “international relationship expert” and/or political analyst do, or what is so special about this job? Well, in plain English, he or she analyzes and interprets international policies, issues, and legislation, as well as the activities of governments, businesses, and organizations overseas to forecast political, economic, and social trends. Now, of course, it sounds a bit too easy just from the sound of it, but, trust me, it isn’t that easy at all, and that’s precisely where it gets interesting.
A particular event or political or economic development in a country can frustrate the entire plan or process to forge a mutually beneficial relationship among all countries. A miscalculation, wrong step, or even some wrong choices of words can create tension or a war-like situation. And, when situations become this messy or unpredictable, the experts on international and political affairs jump into action to calm things down by putting matters into proper perspective, to maintain a steady and peaceful situation in our world.
I believe it is not really easy to become an “international relationship expert” because it requires extensive education with excellent academic results and some solid work experience in the political field or an internship in different international organizations that research international politics.
And, I am interested in having this job in the future because there are just too much mistrust, hatred, competition, and animosity, because of the conflict of interests, among the countries in the world. I want to minimize if not completely erase, these conflicts for a better future for this world and our future generations.

This is an exciting topic to talk about, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for this nice topic. I want to work as a senior secretary in the government’s education ministry as it is a great job. I have planned to work in this position since the beginning of my university days.
This job demands a very talented person to fill the position, which comes with extensive experience in the education sector. It required a person who would be able to change existing policies, make new policies, have extensive knowledge of different academic activities, take the necessary measures to bring positive changes in the country’s education sector, and so on. I want to work in this position to contribute to the education sector of our country. Comprehensive training on our education system and various aspects of the education ministry would be required to do well in this post. Apart from training, extensive experience in the education sector would be a bonus, I believe.
This job does not pay a big salary but if someone wants to contribute to the country’s advancement, he or she would have plenty of opportunities to serve the nation by working in this position and improving the most critical sector of the country. Education, in my opinion, is the single most aspect of the overall development of a nation, and this job gives me a perfect opportunity to work and contribute to this important sector.
I feel the necessity of putting the utmost importance on the education sector, and I know how changing the policy and rules in the education sector can contribute to the betterment of the nation. I am attracted to this job, not because of the salary, power, or the facilities it would offer, but rather for the opportunities it would give to serve the nation and young learners.
