Exercise 14. Role-play the following situation:

A friend of yours has applied for a job and has been invited for an interview. It’s the first time he/she will be interviewed that’s why he/she is very nervous. Calm him/her down and tell him/her what the procedure of interview is like.

Use the wordsin the box form ex.13.

VI. Reading

Exercise 15. Get some information about interviews and translate it if necessary.

Getting the job you want can sometimes depend on the success of the job interview. During the interview the employer will try to find out what kind of person you are, what experience you have, and how you can fit into the job situation.

After you have got an appointment, review the information that you wrote on your application form and resume. Practice talking about your education and previous job experience both in the USA and your native country. Be prepared to explain your skills and abilities specifically.

Go to the interview alone; don't take your friends or children with you. Plan to arrive about ten minutes before the appointment time. Wear appropriate clothing: a neat appearance will make a good impression.

During the interview look directly at the interviewer and answer all of his/her questions as specifically as you can. Ask any questions that you have about the job, such as hours, salary, or job benefits. Write down these questions before you go to the interview. Before you leave, there should be a clear understanding about all aspects of the job.

At the close of the interview, express your thanks and make sure that the interviewer knows how to contact you if he/she wants to hire you.
