1. What are your job prospects?
"prospects"这个词的意义很宽泛，可以理解成工作的前景、计划、期望、或者对未来工作的设想及展望等等。类似的问题还有What’s your career plan?/What kind of job are you planning to take in the future?/What’s is your favorite job?/What do you think of your future job?/Do you have any plan for the future job?等等。
Candidate 1: After graduation, I’m planning to find a job which can improve my abilities and support myself. Among the considerable choices, joining a foreign company is the best. That is my first step. Then I will change my job at a proper time. The second job must be a well-paid(高薪的), decent(体面的) one so that I can earn enough money. If everyone is going well, my final goal is to travel around the world and make contributions to our society by investing in hi-tech industry.
回答干脆利落，对未来工作的构想，提出的“三步走战略”步步为营，给人一种流畅的感觉。After graduation, Then和final goal分别提示了工作时间，起到很好的衔接作用。
Candidate 2: I’ve always had a dream of becoming a teacher. A doctor is allowed to usher(带来) life into the world in one magic moment. An architect knows that if he builds with care his structure may stand for centuries. A teacher is allowed to see that life is reborn each day with new questions, ideas and instructions, and he knows that if he builds with love and truth, what he builds will last forever. In my opinion, even if the names and faces have been forgotten but teachers’ lessons and instructions will always be remembered by their students forever. Maybe several years later I’ll stand in the front of a classroom giving lectures to my students. However, before that, I have to explore more effective teaching methods and I’m now looking forward to a revolution in the field of education which is launched(发动，发展) by myself.
开始的几个排比句列举了几个不同职业的特点，虽然用得很有气势，但是过于书面化，显得有些不自然。后面In my opinion话锋一转，把回答切换到现实中来，稍稍好些。
