The job interview
An editor of a newspaper talks about interviewing people for jobs as journalists.
(E = Editor; I = Interviewer)
I: How important is the interview when you are choosing someone to work for your newspaper?
E: It’s extremely important. Naturally a person whos coming to work here needs good exam results, especially in English. But the interview is very important.
I: In what way?
E: Ive got to be sure that the person is going to be able to get on with people. They need to be quick thinkers and they need to be able to express themselves easily in words.
I: Are there any other qualities (素质) that you are looking for?
E: Yes. The kind of mind thats always asking questions, being able to talk to people easily, that kind of thing.
I: What do you do in the interview?
E: I ask the person about their time at school and their work experience. I ask them about events of the day and ask about their political opinions. I change subjects often and see if they can answer a question quickly.
I: Can you give any general advice to school-leavers who are about to go for a job interview?
E: Yes. Arrive on time. Dress tidily, but not too smartly. Find out as much as you can about the organization before you go to the interview. Dont be shy. Be proud of your successes. But dont pretend to know everything. Admit what you dont know and show that you are eager to learn and gain experience.
This was the morning, when Jeremy, 14 years old, was to begin his duck shooting. He had 1 the whole idea ever since his father had bought him 2 and had promised him a trip to this island. But he loved his father and wanted to 3 him.
They came to the beach. To 4 the sense of fear, he took a 5 of his father. Then he put the camera aside and picked up the gun. His father said happily, “I’ve been 6 a long time for this day. I’ll let you shoot.” He leaned forward, eyes narrowed. “There is a small flight (飞翔的一群) now. Keep your head down; I’ll give you the 7 .”
Jeremy’s heart was beating 8 “No, don’t let me come, please!” But they came, closer, closer… “Now, take him!” cried his father. Jeremy felt his body 9 . He stood up, leaned into the gun the 10 his father taught him. In the same distance (此刻), the ducks saw the gunners and flared (突然飞去) wildly. For a second he hung there balanced 11 life and death. There was no sound. Jeremy stood 12 , seizing the gun.
“What happened? 13 didn’t you shoot?” his father said in a controlled voice. The boy didn’t answer. His lips were trembling (发抖). “Because they were so 14 .” He said and burst into tears. He sat down, face buried in his hands and wept(哭泣) . All 15 of pleasing his father was gone. He had his chance and he had failed. For a moment his father was 16 . And then he said, “Let’s try again.” Jeremy didn’t lower his hands. “It’s no use, I can’t.”
“Hurry, you’ll miss him. Here!” Gold metal touched Jeremy. He 17 up, unbelieving. His father was handing the camera to him, and said softly, “Quick!” Jeremy stood up and pressed his shutter release (快门) button in a flash. “I got him!” his face was bright.
Jeremy saw that there was no disappointment in his father’s eyes, 18 pride and love. “I’ll always love shooting. But that doesn’t mean you 19 . Sometimes it takes as much courage not to do a thing as to do it.” He paused. “I think you could teach me how to operate that 20 .”
