A: Have you had any work experience at all?
B: Yes. I worked part-time at a coffee shop to help to pay my college tuition, and I also worked in the school administration department. I had three bosses there and many varied duties. Sometimes, especially during the beginning of the each term, it was very busy.
B:是的，为了支付我的学费，我在咖啡店做 过小时工,还在学校的行政部门工作过， 我在那儿有过3位上司和多种职责。有 时,特别是每学期开学时总是特别忙。
A: Have you ever worked with foreigners before?
B: Oh, yes. At my university, I was active in projects with the foreign student group. We planned social gatherings and outdoor activities. Our group had students from 10 countries, and I felt quite comfortable with them all.
B:是的。在我上大学的时候，我积极参加 了与外国学生团体的交流活动。我们策 划了社会募捐活动和野外活动。我们团 体中的学生来自10个国家，我和他们相 处得很和谐。
A: How do you think working for a foreign company will be different from working for a Chinese company?
B: I think that generally, foreign companies are more willing to give a great deal of responsibility to their employees. I think that once I prove myself to my superiors, I will have the chance to do increasingly difficult work assignments. This is what I hope for. Mr. Smith, I’m a very hard worker and I take a lot of pride in my work. I think I can be a strong asset to your company if I’m given the chance to prove myself.
B:我认为，一般来说,外国公司会把责任很 重大的工作交给雇员。我想，只要我能 证明自己的能力，我就有机会承担更艰巨的工作。这就是我希望的。史密斯先 生，我是一个非常努力工作的人,并且为 自己的工作能力而感到自豪。我想，如 果给我机会，我会用自己的行动证明我 能为贵公司出力。
A: What do you think a job is?
B: I think it is a way to make a living, of course, but what’s more important, a job is a way of developing as a person.
A: In your current job, what has given you the most satisfaction?
B: When everything is completed, I have a strong feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.
A: Do you prefer working by yourself or with others?
B: Both! Sometimes I have an assignment that needs total concentration, like working with financial figures. At times like these, I need to be alone and be quiet. But other projects are best done with group support, and I enjoy working with a team in these situations.
B:两种都喜欢！有时遇到分派的任务需要 集中精力完成，如财务计算一类的工作， 就需要一个人安静去做。但在其他需要 集体合作才能做好的项目上，我非常愿 意和大家一起合作。
A: What have you learned from some of the jobs you’ve had?
B: I think at first I tended to be over-or-ganized. I have learned to concentrate and focus on the most important parts of a job and not get too caught up with small matters.丨 think I’ve also learned how to work smoothly with people who have different personalities.
B：最初我做事过于死板,后来在工作中逐 渐学会了分清轻重缓急。同时，我还学 会了怎样与不同个性的人一起工作。
