Listening texts

1. (I – Interviewer, IR – Isabella Rosetti)

I: Now let me ask you a question we ask all our candidates. Why should we hire you?

IR: Why hire me? Simple, I get along well with people. I`m used to dealing with people from all walks of life. That`s vital for this job. And I`ve got a lots of ideas for making Slim Gyms more profitable. Want to hear them?

I: Not just now, if you don`t mind. We`ll come back to that later. Um, about your attendance record. Could you tell me why you`ve had quite a bit of time off?

IR: Hmm, you`ve been talking to my boss, I see. Let`s get this clear. I`ve taken a day off now and then, true, but it`s always to go to some family celebration – a marriage, a christening, a family reunion sometimes.

I: Uh huh.

IR: Anyway, I`ve got a great assistant at work – she looks after things if I`m away. It`s no problem at all if I have a day off now and then.

I: Right. Can we look into the future now. I`m interested to know where you see yourself in a few years.

IR: In a few years I suppose I see myself… um, working for your organisation, running the whole business.

I: I hope you achieve that objective.

2. (I – Interviewer, MB – Michael Bolen)

I: Right, a question now about your managerial skills. You`re currently with a sporting goods firm. Do you enjoy working on a team – with other managers?

MB: I enjoy working with colleagues a lot, especially when developing a project, let`s say, working long hours sometimes, but everyone`s working together, to make a success of things.

I: So would you say you`re a good team player?

MB: Definitely. But, let me say this, I like to be on my own from time to time. Especially if there`s some problem to be worked out. I guess some people would say I keep to myself too much, but it`s not true really.

I: OK, let me follow that up. Um, I`d like to know what your colleagues would say about you. How would they describe you?

MB: Huh, that`s a difficult one. Mmm… I think they`d say I know my own mind, I`m a decisive person. Sometimes, you have to do things that you don`t like, for example, fire an employee. Well, if I have to do it, I do it, and then forget about it.

I: What else would your colleagues say?

MB: They`d say that I`m a friendly person, when I get to know people. Some of them think I`m too friendly.

I: Really?

MB: Well, you know, a few of the women in the company, they get a little jealous because I take out my administrative assistant, Sue, from time to time, give her a nice lunch, you know, say thanks for all her hard work. Nothing wrong in that, is there?

3. (I – Interviewer, BW – Bob Wills)

I: You`re obviously eager to get this job. Could you tell me what your strengths are? What do you think you`re good at?

BW: Main strengths? Good at managing people, I`d say. I suppose it`s my army training. I know how to set goals for people. Objectives. And I make sure they meet them.

I: Hmm, don`t you think some people might get upset, you know, lose their motivation if they don`t achieve the goals you set?

BW: Not at all. You don`t get anywhere in this life if you`re too easy on people. You`ve got to make an effort to get anywhere. Like your health club customers. If they want to get fit, they`ve got to have discipline. Do all the exercises, eat properly, give up alcohol and smoking. Change their lifestyle – that`s what it`s all about.

I: Mmm, interesting! A final question. Maybe a difficult one. Could you tell me how you`ve changed in the last… oh… five years, let`s say.

BW: Sure. I think I`m more realistic now than I used to be. I know it`ll be difficult for me to get a good job – being in the army most of my life. So, I`m trying to learn new skills, update my knowledge. Like in marketing and finance. So, I`ll have more to offer an employer. I`m not going to sit around waiting for the big job to come to me – it`s not my style.

4. (I – Interviewer, SG – Stephanie Grant)

I: Right. Can you tell me why you want to leave your present job. TV announcer. Well paid. Everyone knows you. Admires you. You`ve got everything you want, don`t you?

SG: Huh, I guess it does look like that. I do love the job. But I`m thirty now. I know the management is looking for younger talent. It wants sparky, glamorous twenty-year-olds in the job. To increase the ratings. I`m on the way out, I know that. So… I`m going before I`m pushed.

I: Oh surely not. Someone with your reputation.

SG: People come and go in my profession. Think of all the stars of ten years ago. Where are they now?

I: Mmm, I take your point. Um, looking at your CV, your earlier career. You gave up competitive swimming when you were… er… twenty-four. Rather early to do that, wasn`t it? I mean, don`t swimmers go on competing… ?

SG: Look, I`m sure you read the papers. You must know, when I won the big races, some of the swimmers accused me of taking drugs. You know, to improve my performance. It was horrible. All a bunch of lies. I got really upset, I thought, oh, I don`t need this nonsense. I just gave it all up. I`d had enough.
