If you could have any job in the world, what would you like to be? What makes a job a 'good job'?

Read through this short text about work and see if you can guess which words have been left out.

When she was first employed by the company we were worried that the job was too low _1_ for her. She told us not to worry because the position had good _2_ like a pension and medical insurance. She also said she would get a great end of year _3_ if she did well and there was plenty of opportunity for _4_ within the company to a higher position.

She's been at the company for five years now and is very valued by her bosses. She seems to get a pay _5_ every year so she now has a high _6_.

The working _7_ are great, they really look after their employees. She likes the _8_ working hours because she can come into work late if she has something to do in the morning. She doesn’t have to work much _9_ (she usually finishes at 5pm) and she hardly ever works on the weekend. They don't pay extra for working late anyway!

She's still very ambitious and motivated by money. Her dream is to _10_ by the time she is 40 and move to the countryside!
