Part 1-style task
Examiner: What do you do?
Sasha: I do a job-share with a friend in a boutique … I enjoy it … I like working with customers … Unfortunately it’s only temporary work but one of the perks of the job is I get a discount on the clothes …
Examiner: Do you have any career plans yet?
Carly: Yes … I’d like to be my own boss one day … I’m interested in programming and I’d like to create apps for myself or for other companies … I know being self-employed would be a challenge but the idea of doing a nine-to-five job doesn’t appeal to me at all …
Examiner: What do you see yourself doing in 10 years time?
Marie: I’d hope to be working, not a high-powered job … but I’m quite a creative person
So something, where I can work with my hands, would be nice … As long as I’m not stuck behind a desk doing something boring in a dead-end job I’ll be happy …
Part 2-style task
Describe your ideal job. You should say:
- what this job is
- whether you would need any qualifications
- whether it would be easy to find work and say why you would enjoy this job in particular.
Max: I’ve always loved watching wildlife programmes on TV and often thought how much I’d enjoy working with animals … Perhaps in a safari park … Something like that … You’d probably need a degree to have any chance of being called for an interview and whether there are many full-time jobs I don’t know … I’m sure a lot of parks rely on voluntary work so it might not be easy … And it probably wouldn’t be well-paid either but money isn’t everything … I’d get so muchjob satisfaction … I can’t imagine it being the kind of job where you get stuck in a rut … And I think I’d be good at it as well … I’d love to work with animals I enjoy manual work and I’m a good team player … So even though the working conditions might not be the best I think that would be my ideal job …
Part 3-style questions
Examiner: If there are a limited number of jobs available who should be given priority, young people or older people with more experience?
Anna: Things are so different these days … A few years ago older employees would often take early retirement or go onto part-time contracts and there were always opportunities for younger people but now jobs are so scarce … I think younger people need to be given the chance whenever possible …
Examiner: What are some of the important things a candidate should find out before accepting a job? Ali: Well, you’d need to know about your area of responsibility … And your salary of course and then there are things like holiday entitlement, maternity or paternity leave … If you’re thinking of having children, and what the situation is regarding sick leave, that kind of thing …
Examiner: What are the advantages of having your own business rather than working for someone else?
Julie: Well … Unfortunately being an employee at the moment is very stressful … People have very heavy workloads … they’re always under pressure to meet deadlines … Running your own business isn’t easy, but I do think it would be far more satisfying …
