Band 9.0 Sample.
One person I know whose job is important to society is my friend who is a nurse. I met my friend while we were studying nursing together in college, and we have been friends ever since.
My friend works as a nurse in a hospital, and she is responsible for caring for patients, administering medications, and working with doctors and other healthcare professionals to provide high-quality care to patients.
I think my friend’s job is important to society because nurses play a crucial role in our healthcare system. They are the front-line caregivers who work closely with patients and families to provide essential medical care and support. They are also responsible for coordinating care, communicating with other healthcare professionals, and advocating for patient needs.
In addition to the direct care that nurses provide, their work also contributes to society in other ways. Nurses are involved in research and education, and they play a key role in promoting health and preventing illness in the community. They also help to advocate for policy changes that can improve healthcare access and quality for all people.
Overall, I think my friend’s job as a nurse is important and valuable to society, and I am grateful for the dedicated and compassionate care that she provides to her patients every day.

Another Band 9.0 Sample.
Today, I am going to talk about a person whose job is important to society/ in the news whom I would like to meet. It is Kenny G, the saxophonis.
I first listened to his music when I was very small, starting with the well-known piece “Forever in Love”.
It was so melodious and relaxing that every time I listened to it, I felt like I was on cloud 9.
– Recently, Kenny G decided to hold a concert in Vietnam and it quickly became a major news story, covered in all of our media from newspapers to TV, and most radio channels.
For people like me, who have been used to listening to his saxophone recordings since we were young, this was a once in a lifetime chance to meet him in person and listen to his music at a live concert, not on a music CD or online playlist.
Maybe to many people, being a musician doesn’t contribute much to our society.
However, I think that any career that we choose to pursue plays an important role in our lives.
If a business person is important, so is a musician. Imagine a world without music, it would definitely be so dull and boring.
In addition, music also helps us soothe our soul and relax our brain after hard days at work.
Although we cannot quantify its benefit, the positive effects that music brings to our lives are undeniably worth valuing.
