You are going to read part of a leaflet prepared by a large employment agency. It gives advice on what to do and what not to do at interviews. Choose the most suitable heading from the list A-F for each part (1-4). There is an example at the beginning (0). Notice that there is one heading which you do NOT need to use.


A. Why did you leave your last job?

B. What else should you do during the interview?

C. What did you do in your last job?

D. How should you prepare for the interview?

E. Why do you want to work for us?

F. What questions should I ask my interviewers?


1. Find out as much as you can about your prospective employers and the business they are in. Think about the questions you are most likely to be asked, and at least three questions you would like to ask them. Then make sure you arrive for the interview at least fifteen minutes early. Here, by the way, are four of the most frequent questions interviewers ask. Think calmly about them while you are waiting.

2. Don't talk only about what you hope to get from the firm. Emphasize what you think you can do for them and all the things in your previous experience and training that you think will be useful in the new job. Be sure also to mention something you have learned about your prospective employers that interests you.

3. Don't just give the name of the job. Describe the main duties and responsibilities the job involved. Then pause and see if your interviewer has any further questions.

4. Be as positive as possible. Emphasize all the things you learned that you think will be useful in the new job. Be sure to mention any promotion or advancement you had.

a. Relax. Be yourself.

b. Look at your interviewer when he or she asks you questions.

c. If you don't understand a question, politely say 'I'm not sure if I understand. Do you mean...'

d. Remember the questions you would like to ask. Be sure to ask at least one or two before the interview is over.

e. At the end, thank your interviewers for seeing you.


5. Never say 'It was boring'. Instead, say that you didn't think you could make use of your full abilities. Don't criticize your previous employer. If you lost your job through no fault of your own, briefly describe the problems the company had. Never give your prospective employers the impression that you are bitter.
