Interview 2




Interview 1

Listening 3

ApplicantA bit of cinema, a bit of reading, you know … I don’t really have very much free time, really. In my current job I quite often have to work on Saturdays and Sundays, or late at night when the computers can be turned off – we sometimes can’t do much during the day because everyone’s using their machines.

Interviewer OK, great. Perhaps we can turn to this job now. First of all, why do you want to work for us?

ApplicantI think because yours in the biggest company in the field. I’m really interested in modern communications, and the biggest company should offer the biggest opportunities.

Interviewer And what are your strengths and weaknesses?

ApplicantWeaknesses? I haven’t got any! And strengths? Ambition. I really want to do well, and I’m flexible and reliable.

Interviewer Why do you think you’d be good at this job?

ApplicantOh, um, why would I be good? I don’t know really … I just think I’d be good at it, I mean, I know a lot about systems support, and this seems to be the perfect job for me.

Interviewer Where do you want to be in five years’ time?

ApplicantI want to progress within the organization – I’d like more responsibility, and more money too, if possible!

Interviewer Speaking of money, could I ask you a few details about your current salary and extras?

ApplicantYes, sure. Well, I’m earning 19,000 at the moment, but then I get some overtime on top of that, so I suppose altogether it comes to more like twenty-two. And I’m a member of the company pension scheme which is good for the future …

ApplicantYeah, the traffic was terrible, and the weather, it took me ages to get here, and then I couldn’t find the car park! I’ll just put my umbrella in the corner here, shall I? Anyway, I’m really sorry I’m late.

Interviewer Well, I’m glad you got here in the end. Now, we should probably get going as fast as we can, because I’ve got another interview at 12.00. I think the most important question I can ask is ‘Why do you want to work for us?’



ApplicantWell, I’m a bit bored where I’m working at the moment, so I’d really like a change. I mean, I’ve been there for nearly a year now. I don’t know if I’ll like it more here, but it’s a bigger company, and the salary’s a lot better than the job I’ve got. Also, I like the idea of flexitime, because I find it really hard to get up in the morning!

Interviewer And what would you say your main strengths and weaknesses are?

ApplicantStrengths? A sense of humour. And weaknesses? Well, everybody says I’m really disorganized, but I don’t think I am. I’m sometimes a bit late, you know, for meetings and deadlines, but I usually survive! I think I’m reliable – I always do what I say I’m going to do, eventually.

Interviewer Why do you think you’d be good at this job?

ApplicantOh … hmm, that’s a difficult question. Well, I’ve got the right qualifications, I’m interested, and I like a challenge. I’m quite independent, too.

Interviewer And where do you want to be in five years’ time?

Applicant Australia, I hope! I mean I’m planning to stay in Britain for a year or two, but to be honest I really want to move somewhere hot and sunny. And after a couple of years I’ll probably feel like another change.

Interviewer OK. And what about your free time? What sort of

things do you do?

Applicant Um, well, I like to keep my weekends completely free – I hate having, having to work at the weekend, because I go walking. I try to get up to Scotland whenever I can. And I play a lot of sport, tennis, squash, things like that, you know …
