There are many reasons for my decision to study for postgraduate programs, one of which is the value of a master’s degree. It ensures me a secure future in a society in which college graduatesin mounting numbers failedto be employed.
First, there is a recognition thata candidate with a master’s degree will have an competitive advantage over those with only a bachelor’s degree. Five years ago when college population accounted for only 30 percent of the people of the same age,it was easy for a college graduate toget a good job in any field. But now things are quite different. Second,the higher education you have, the higher salary you will receive. Just look at some big companies which compete against each other to recruit skilled personnel.
Briefly speaking, more knowledge means more opportunities. More years of academic studies will help equip you with more knowledge and skills. Then if conditions change, you can slip with comparative ease from one field into another, avoid the pain of waking up to find yourself out of a job.

1.The number has peaked 65 percent and approached a surplus, and consequently many companies set a much higher standard for new recruits than ever.
2.This is inevitable because we live in a society where our income is still determined by the knowledge you possess.
3.Tempting salaries and “fringe benefits” are often offered by those executive-search firms to highly skilled persons.
For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the saying “It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to always be right by having no ideas at all.” You can cite examples to illustrate the importance of innovation and creativity. You should write at least 120 words, no more than 180 words.
There is a saying that“It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong, than to always be right by having no ideas at all.” The purpose of the saying is to show us thatutmost importance should be attached to innovation and creativity.
To begin with,an attitude of innovation could be said to be the watchword, or motto of science. For example,before a new type of medicine or vaccine is developed, innumerable times of scientific experiment, laboratory tests and live trials must be carried out. In addition,innovation is also responsible for many of today’s business successes. For instance,I personally worked with such a company. It was only after four years and four different tries of varying business models that the entrepreneur finally made his mark, and became the chairman of one of the largest Internet companies.
To sum up,in any field of endeavor, whether it be medicine, engineering or business,it is necessary tofirst put great emphasis on innovation before one can finally meet with success.

meet with success 获得成功
1.Most of us are driven to do things in the most efficient way possible, which leads to experimentation and innovation.
2.If human beings were always satisfied with what they have, we would still be living in the stone ages.
3.We have taken this proclivity to a positive extreme by investing every aspect of the tangible and intangible world, in the name of satisfying our thirst for knowledge and understanding.
六级写作已经多次考察人生哲理这一话题，如：2012-12：The most dangerous thing is not that computer is beginning to think like man, but is that man is beginning to think like computer.（最危险的事情不是电脑开始像人一样思考，而是人开始像电脑一样思考），2012-12：On Maintaining Trust（关于保持信任）。
For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay commenting on the saying “The most successful persons may not be the smartest ones.” You can give one example or two to illustrate your point of view. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
According to a survey conducted amonga group of people who were in the same college 10 years ago, those whose grade-point average was in the middle fifty percent, all become rich or managers of different fields, while not a single young man of the upper ten percent becomes an executive or boss.
One ingredient, among other things, is good interpersonal skills. With a wide circle of friends who can be trusted to provide information and resources, your chances of success are much higher. On the contrary, if you are competent in your profession, but have difficulty in getting along with your colleagues and even your boss, you can hardly survive the corporation. Another component is the ability toexpress oneself. In today’s world, what really counts is the ability to express oneself rather than technical competence or professional knowledge. The larger the organization of which you are an employee, and the fiercer the competition, the more important it will be that you know how to convey your thoughts and convince others of your ideas.
To sum up, according to my observation,academic brightness is only part of the story, the other factors are very important.
wide circle of friends朋友圈
on the contrary相反
have difficulty in在…方面有困难
getting along with与…和睦相处
to sum up总之
1.There is strong evidence that friendship can help to tide you over a period of difficulty.
2.Why those who are not excellent in studies tend to be managers or own their own enterprises in their later life?
3.And what factors lead to success in career and life if brains are not the only answer?
