Examiner So, I understand you’re looking for a part-time job. Is that right?
Candidate Yes, that’s right.
Examiner Well, we have two jobs available at the moment. What do you think of this first one? They’re looking for a part-time waiter. Does that appeal to you?
Candidate Well, I quite like the idea of working in a busy café. But the hours aren’t quite right for me. I know it’s only four hours a day. However, it’s at the end of the day when I am already tired.
Examiner Oh, OK. You’re a morning person! Well, what about this other job: gardener.
Candidate I like the sound of that. I enjoy working outside, even though the weather is often bad. I find gardens very relaxing.
Examiner And what about the hours? Are you happy with those?
Candidate Yes, I am. Although the hours are quite long, they’re all at the weekend.
Examiner OK. So you’re choosing this job – the gardener.
Candidate That’s right. I’m sure a café is an interesting place to work. The money is slightly better too. Nevertheless, I’m sure the other job is right for me.
