R: Good morning, madam. Can I help you?
A: Good morning. I am Sunfang. Yesterday Mr. Smith told me to come for a job interview this morning. Is he available now?
R: Yes, he is waiting for you in Room 123.
A: Thank you very much.
A: May I come in?
I: Come in, please.
A: Good morning, Mr. Smith. I am Sunfang coming for an interview.
I: Nice to see you. Take a seat, please.
A: Thank you.
I: We have been looking over your application. I see you have got several years experience in secretarial work. What kind of work did you do in your previous job?
A: I mainly did typing, filing, answering telephone calls and such routine work in the beginning. I started the job as a junior secretary, but within the year I was promoted to senior secretary of Southeast Company. I drafted business correspondence for the general manager.
I: Then what's the reason that promoted you to leave Southeast Company?
A: Last month the company moved to Guangzhou for further development. I was reluctant to relocate because I love Nanjing so much.
I: Tell me what you know about our company.
A: Your company is the leading dealer in the import and export of cosmetics. Also, you have a reputation for being a good company to work for and you are in last year's top 500 Employers list.
I: Tell me three positive qualities your coworkers would use to describe you and your work style.
A: First they'll say I am very punctual. They'll also say I am a cheerful person to work with. I don't bring my problems to work. I try to have a positive attitude about work. And thirdly, they will say I am flexible. I accept change easily.
I: Tell me something about your education.
A: I graduated from Yangzhou Junior College. Now I am attending evening classes in Nanjing Radio & TV University three times a week. My major is International Trade. I have already passed over half of the compulsory courses and five optional courses, and expect to receive a BA degree next year.
I: I see you are an ambitious young lady. I wish you can make greater progress in the future.
