A. Study the information in the box and do the task after it.



When people ask you to explain your job, they want to know your responsibilities (= your duties/what you have to do), or something about your daily routine (= what you do every day). They can ask like this: What does that involve? (= What do you do in your job?). We often use responsible for/in charge of for part of something, e.g. a department or some of the workers; and run for control of all of something, e.g. a company, a shop, a course, etc.

B. Replace the words in bold with the words from the box.

Involves, deal with, attend, responsible for, run, advise, customers

1 My job includes travelling.My jobinvolvestravelling.

2 I handle a lot of task a day.

3 I am in control of / manage the coffee bar in the museum.

4 I go toa lot of meetings.

5 I see/meet clients.

6 I consult clients.

7 I'm in charge ofsecurity in the company.

Work in pairs. Read the statements and then ask and answer questions about work. If you don’t work, talk about a person who works.

e.g. Do you work at a computer a lot of time? – Yes, I do.

For example:

I work at a computer a lot of the time.

I do a lot of paperwork.

I use e-mail a lot.

I show people round my workplace.

I arrange meetings.

I attend quite a lot of meetings.
