Topic 1.


When you apply for a job, you usually fill in an application form or send your CV (curriculum vitae/ resume) with a covering letter (= a letter containing extra information about yourself). Then you have an interview. If it goes well and the employer is satisfied with your references (= describing your character and abilities, often from your former employer) you will get the job. You sign the contract and become an employee. A job can be well-paid / highly-paidor badly-paid / low-paid. A job can be full-time or part-time, permanent or temporary. If your working conditions are good and you have the chance to be promoted (= be given a more important job), then you will probably get a lot of job satisfaction.

Topic 2.

Leaving a job

If you want toleave your job,you resign or hand in your resignation. If a company no longer needs an employee, it will makehim/herredundant. If an employee’s work is not good enough, the company may dismiss her/him. In less formal English we use the verb fireorsack, or noun the sack:

Her boss fired/sacked her. Her boss gave her the sack. She got the sack.

When you stop working because you have reached a certain age (usually 60 or 65), you retire.
