Here is the question:

“How realistic is the expectation of job satisfaction for all careers? How realistic is job satisfaction for all workers? How can people be satisfied in their work? Give your opinion on this and discuss the solutions.”

When you answer this kind of question with two questions in it you need to answer each question in a separate paragraph.

Don’t overthink it.

Organize it in a simple way.

Brainstorm about the first question first then start a new list about the second question and then those to chunks of brainstormed ideas will create your two body paragraphs.

When you choose your opinion you must choose the side that has the most supporting evidence.

During your brainstorming step you need to see if there is enough information to support your point.

If there is not enough information then you need to quickly switch to the other point of view.

Remember, IELTS does not care about your personal ideas and beliefs.

They only care about your English skills.

When you look for evidence remember to use your own personal stories or examples.
