Unemployment has always been a global issue, and there are many reasons why people lose their job, such as redundancy, company failure, or when they are injured. There are not enough jobs available for people, especially the young generation.

In recent years, more and more Chinese people choose to go abroad to study in order to have a better future. However, with fierce competition and differences in culture backgrounds, it is not easy to find a decent job in foreign countries.

Some students choose to open their own business. Is it the best way for international students?Actually, this solution has pros and cons.

If you think it is a fun and exciting career, you are only partially correct. There are also many unpredictable risks for the entrepreneur. However, not everyone wants to take risks, nor have abilities to tackle crisis.

In contrast, international students who are passionate and creative, as well as having the capacity for risk-taking and forecasting future possibilities are equipped to set up their own business. They can address the issue of unemployment. Moreover, they also can enhance their individual value, and make their life better and happier via their efforts.

In my story, I interviewed a dancer who is named Yiaoqian Guo. She was out of work because she injured her waist, and could not stand on the stage to dance as a professional folk dancer. However, she did not give up, and chose to come to Melbourne to study and to update her skills. Now she has opened her own dance training centre in Melbourne.

I hope that her story will encourage international students who are facing difficulty in their careers to improve their outlook. I also want to inspire them to never give up on their dreams. If you have passion and believe you can do well, just make an effort and try to do it. Even if we face difficulties in our lives, we should build confidence for the future.

Finally, I want to say some additional words. Individuals have different psychological frustration tolerance when they face difficulties. Some people can quickly overcome negative feelings and turn over a new leaf. However, others may experience a low mood for a long time. If you are the latter, you would be better to find positive ways to adjust your situation. Whatever the reasons, we should believe that everyday will be a brilliant new start.
