T: Well, the whole class, please turn to P139, go through the text quickly.
Several minutes will be given to you. After that, I’ll ask one of you to tell
S1 how she can find a job which is suited.
Step 2. Fast Reading
T: Well, S2 Can you tell S1 how to find a suitable job?
S2: Recognize what kind of person she is, which special qualities she has and
what she is interested in. Examine her skills and abilities. Trust her own
ideas and her own thinking.
T: S1, do you think so.
Step 3. Careful Reading
T: Quite good. I do believe this article is useful to people especially young people who will hunt for work in the future, just like you. So this time I want you to read the passage carefully again and find out more information.
1. Why is it difficult to find the right job?
1). How many types of jobs are there in the world?
2). Does “ finding a job” mean the same thing as “ choosing a job “?

you different from others, a questionnaire in the text will help you.

S3: I want to be …
T: What strong points do you have ?
T: How about your choice for your future career?
S4: I’d like to be …
T: Is there any weakness in you to get such a post? What is it?
T: Well, I hope your dream will come true one day.
T: Then what is the best job, in your opinion?
S5: One which uses your skills in doing something together with your interest
in the subject.
T: Great! Now let’s come to the next question.
What kind of research work does the writer suggest doing?
S6: To find out different kinds of work
T: Why does the writer suggest you asking the young people for advice?
S7: Because young people have a lot of things in common. We are about similar
ideas in many ways.
Step 4. Listening and Paraphrasing
Ask students to listen to the tape. After that, get one student to find out the title
of the text. ( Finding a job )
Some language points:
Step 5. Discussion
T: Anyway, before we choose a job, we should know what kind of people we are, our
interest, skill, abilities and strong points, besides we also should find out information
about jobs. Actually another important thing should draw our attention. That is the
interview. A successful interview is a great help in getting a job.
Do you know how to make a proper interview ?
S8: Arrive on time
S9: Dress tidily, but not too smartly/fashionably
S10: Find out as much as you can about the organization before you go to the interview

to learn and gain experience
Step 6. Interview

form from Wei Haiying and are interviewing her. Ask her questions to find out
her education, skills, abilities, her level of English and work experience. Then
make a decision whether to accept her as a travel guide.
T: Let’s turn to P237, Ex.2, a job application form. Read it carefully and do an interview.
I’ll give you minutes to prepare.
(Get one pair to perform the interview)
T: Manager, will you accept her as a travel guide ? Congratulations!
So the whole class, how do you find what they two did just now?
(Ask the students to do assessment of the performance)
Step 7. Debate
T: S12 is so fortunate that she gets the job suitable for her. But in real life, not all people
