For me, the ideal job that I would like to have is to be an air hostess.

This job involves taking care of customers on planes, serving food and drinks, and making sure that they have a safe flight. In Vietnam, to apply for this position, an applicant has to meet various requirements, including being at least 20 years old, having good communication and problem-solving skills, having a good command of language, and so on. One special thing is this career is open to both men and women, although women are preferred.

There are many reasons why I think this job would suit me. Firstly, I have a passion for traveling. Taking this job, I could travel to many countries on a regular basis. Occasionally, when I have free time between flights, I would be able to go sightseeing and enjoy a variety of local food. Secondly, I have quite a good command of English and French, which are spoken by the majority of people around the world. Therefore, this would help me a lot if I could get this job. Lastly, I am really interested in talking with others. So, I believe that this job is perfect for me since I would meet hundreds of people every day. As a final point, I hope that I can follow my dream career in the future.
