“Which of the following ways do you think is the best for a person to find a job?
1. ask opinions or seek advice of others;
2. write letters or send applications to the companies;
3. find information on the Internet or publications.”
The first option is not adopted because those people from whom we seek advice may be a small group of people we trust, whose idea pool may be therefore limited not only in the number of ideas but also in the diversity. Although we may ask more people as we need to expand the source of advice, we may however have doubt about their opinions, since those people may not be as trustworthy as the small group of people we think of immediately. ← 就用“讲道理”来论证。
If we opt for the second choice, we have one clear target or a few, and if our applications are accepted, we may find the wanted job. 立即出现例子去论证 → For example, one of my friends who had always wanted to work for the Nike Company wrote numerous letters to the company’s recruitment department and eventually got a job. That was pleasant experience for sure. 例子里的转折部分用来否定选项2，那么前面的部分就是段落内部的让步，接下来出现论证重点(否定选项2)。→ However, this approach did not work for many other friends of mine. They failed because the companies they admire did not havevacancies for which they are suited. Obviously, they would not wait until the companies had jobs that would suit them, and instead, they settledfor working for other companies.← 例子一直到段落结束，本段落的主要论证方式就是“举例子”。
The third choice is therefore most ideal and practical. It is an apparent advantage that there is a great deal of information on the Internet or publications of various forms and the information is sorted. Job seekers are not only provided with a broad range of choice, they also benefit from the classification that narrows the suitability down to a more possible range of options.← 仿佛论证可以结束了，因为道理挺简单易懂的。但是，别急。巧了，可以顺延上一段的例子对这一段的道理进行论证 → Actually, those friends of mine who did not succeed by trying the second way found jobs by browsing therecruitment information on the Internet and newspapers, and gladly, many of the jobs are quite satisfactory.
