A: What are your career goals, Miss Li?
B: Let me see, I would like to work my way up to a senior management position with a company such as yours.
A: Great! It sounds like you might be a good fit. As you know, we’re one of the largest brokerage houses in the world. Our daily work is quite hectic, and we，re looking for an assistant who can keep us organized... help keep the engines running smoothly, so to speak. Our hours are long, but the overtime pay is good... sort of makes up for the long hours.
A:太好了！听起来你似乎很适合这个工 作。你知道，我们是世界上最大的经纪 公司之一。我们的日常工作是相当紧张 忙碌的,我们在找一个能使公司业务井 然有序的助手……可以这么说,他要帮 助我们维持公司的顺利进行。我们的工 作时间很长，但是加班费也很可观，算是 对长时间加班的补偿吧。
B: What would a typical day be like for me here?
A: Well, that’s the problem. We never seem to have “typical” days, but you'd spend about 30% of your time on the computer. There would also be a lot of telephone time, setting up appointment, and taking care of a lot of support work.
B: Oh, yes, I do. My present job is similar in that respect, and I think I’m doing a good job.
