T: Hello everybody! I hope that our guests will be interested in the subject of our today’s discussion, which is “ Applying for a Job. Some Tips for the Applicants.”
At our previous lesson we spoke about the ways of writing a good CV, that is a curriculum vitae (or a resume), we read some adverts from the newspapers and magazines given in our exercise-books and discussed some texts about different jobs and personal qualities each job requires. Today I suggest we should try to make a summary of the material on the problem. I am sure it will help you in your future career.
First of all look at the blackboard. There are some key words we can use during our discussion: CV, t curriculum vitae (or a resume), work experience, applicant, employee, employer, meet with the requirements, to be tested, to be employed, to hire, head-hunters, job mobility. There is also main points of the resume you have to complete.
Date of birth/Place of birth /Contact information
T: To begin with I’ve invited the specialists of head-hunting agency (head-hunters) who will give you some tips and inform you about some interesting facts.. Let’s try to have a look on getting a job from the point of view of an employer who wants to hire a good specialist. Well, specialists! You are welcome.
Два ученика выступают с подготовленными сообщениями по материалам.
P.1- If your employer likes your CV you will get an interview. An interview is a final step when your employer meets you in person asks you questions and sometimes tests your abilities. But there are situations when you don’t even realize you are being tested.
P.2- A very successful South West Airlines, one of America’s most attractive employers says: “We are not interested in qualifications or experience. We can train that kind of stuff. We look for people with a nice personality and a sense of humor.”
P.1- Another successful employer once told me that, for him, the best indicator of potential management ability is an applicant’s driving style. The first interview usually takes place in a car, and the applicant has to answer questions while driving through city traffic.
P.2- Another interviewer invited applicants to lunch to a cafe. And if they made a mistake of salting their food before tasting it, he didn’t hire them.
T: Our specialists told you about the ways of organizing job interviews in the situations when you don’t even realize you are being tested. Now will you answer my question!
Where do job interviews sometimes take place?
PP: (предполагаемые ответы- in a cafe, in a car).
T: That’s right! But remember that you should write a good CV first and only then you will get an interview (in case your employer likes your CV).
