- I do admire my close friend about many things. Although there are lots of unemployed people these days, he still do not accept to have a job with low pay and not compatible with his ability.

- Do these sound very good? :)

Thanks so much!

.. Steve in a word .. NO!! .. let's break it down >>

I do admire my close friend about many things. I would write >> I admire my close friend for many reasons.

Although there are lots of unemployed people these days, he still do not accept to have a job with low pay and not compatible with his ability. Mate this one really has me guessing but what I think you are trying to say is that your friend will not accept a job for which he thinks he is overqualified and which pays low wages. Am I correct? .. if so then I would write something like >> Even though he is unemployed he continues to look for a job to match his qualifications. He is not willing to accept a low paid job.

.. how does that sound ??
