雅思作文分享 |广泛使用新技术让年轻人更容易找到工作吗?

The increasing use of technology in the workplace has made it easier for young people to find jobs and harder for older people to do so. To what extent do you agree or disagree? (2019/5/4)

本题问:工作场所广泛使用技术让年轻人比年纪大的人更容易找到工作,你是否同意?

可以看到,本题的题干中包含了一个因果关系,即“工作场所广泛使用技术”导致了“年轻人更容易找到工作”。因此,这是一个“因果关系” 的题目。就这类题目,我们最好对“因”和“果”都做出反应。比如,我们可以承认“因”,但否认这个“因”必然导致那个“果”,也就是说我们可以把论述重心放在拆解那个因果链上。当然,我们也可以直接否认“因”,当然也就否认“果”了。

对于“因果关系”类题目,我们一般采取以上第一种做法,即承认“因”,但不承认“果”。就本题而言,我们可以承认“工作场所现在的确广泛使用了新科技”,并承认这种情况有可能导致年轻人更容易找工作,但接下来就要反向思维,讨论广泛使用新科技并不绝对导致年纪大的人不容易找工作,事实上,年纪大的人在工作市场上有其自身优势,比如工作更投入,更有经验(甚至有些年纪大的人也能学会使用新科技)。

范文

These days, young people seem to find it easier to get employed than the older ones. One possible reason why this happens is that young workers are mostly “tech-smarter” than their older counterparts. This notion does make sense because sometimes the older persons just cannot “do” technology: not being able to figure out how to use a smart-phone or send email, for example. Since the age factor matters in the workplace that particularly stresses the use of technology, job applicants in their 20s are preferred for being “digital natives” and those in their 30s are acceptable for being “tech-savvy.” Nevertheless, those in their 40s are seldom tolerated, not to mention those in their 50s or older who are likely to have trouble adapting to new tricks.

counterparts 对应的人或物

applicant 申请者

tolerate 容忍

However, it does not necessarily mean that the young are always in a better position to find a job simply because they better at new technologies. Many older people can actually get used to using technology skills if they are given the opportunity to do so. Moreover, according to a survey, workers aged 40 and up are among the most engaged members of the workforce, even though most of them would learn less, remember less, and take longer to master technology skills than do most younger workers. The same survey has also revealed that many employed older people are able to combine what they have learned in technology with seasoned communication skills in real life. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the average age of an outstanding entrepreneur is 45, not 25, and there are more top-ranking managers over 50 than 35.

to be in a position to do... 有能力做......

engaged 投入的

combine A with B 把A和B结合起来

seasoned 熟稔的

it should come as no surprise that... 不足为怪

To sum up, conventional thinking assumes that older job-seekers are relatively not as “tech-savvy” as younger ones. To my mind, however, “tech” and “old” are not opposites, and there are far more factors than techology skills to consider in the decision of the employers.

assume 认为;假设

to my mind 我认为
