Student or Learner
I am trying to learn English, but sometimes the text are in very high level academic writing so because English is not my native language I have difficulties to find the correct answer, so please help me! Above I found a text, which I use to answer in some questions, but five other are making me very confuse:
Summer turns most people thoughts to holidays, but those leaving university or school will be thinking about the big, wide world of work.
Whatever job you decide to tackle first, it will prove to be a valuable training ground. Filling or typing memos may not be your idea of a great career move but be prepared to learn those lowly tasks, You may have a top degree, but no boss will hire you if you can`t answer the telephone in a proper manner.
Most graduates and school leavers will be coming into the employment market in the summer, so competition will be tough. Start searching sooner rather than later. You should highlight any work experience you have and say you are keen to learn. It also helps to research the firms and what the job involves, Remember that most junior hiring decisions are made on personality. Firms are looking for reliable conscientious and punctual employees. While most employees want junior staff to take the initiative and be receptive to their ideas, you must be realistic about time-frames for promotion. And even if you end up spending your career doing something other than your first job, bear in mind that you will learn very useful and often transferable skills in process.
Aim to be hired by the firm that has the best reputation for employee training. At the interview you should ask about what sort of experience you will gain. The faster you can pick up the experience, the faster you can move up the corporate ladder. A good company will start you in a "proper" job, which is mixed with technical and personal training. As well as learning computer and other professional skills, good firms also offer training which focuses on interaction with colleagues. In many companies trainees are allotted a "mentor", a senior member of staff - not their immediate boss- who they can consult on difficult areas. New employees are encouraged to socialize and network with other trainees, which is again another way of finding support and advice but this time through their peers.
In fact once installed in your position, the first thing is to work out the packing order, many people try to deny it but office politics does exist. If you`ve never been in a work environment before, use your first job to learn about how to handle it or how to avoid it.
I have to find the point of writer:
*The writer points out that in first job you have to...:
-be good at communication ,
- expect to do menial jobs, or
- use your qualifications
- go through RIGOROUS TRAININGS
*What should job-seekers do?
-make sure they know the competition
- work in temporary summer job first,
- show evidence on any previous position, or
- apply for range of jobs
* The writer warns people in their first job,
- not to be hasty in their desire to get on,
-not to waste time learning non-transferrable skills,
-they should be model employees to make an, or
- that they will have to accept the company's ideas
*The writer suggest that if you get a job with a company which offers training, you will?
- gain worthwhile experience quickly
- benefit from its good reputation
- be trained in the latest technology.
*What are new employees advice to find out about initially?
- The way to process new orders, or
- The office hierarchy
First of all, a tip. If I tell you I don't understand something you need to change it.
There is a reason that I often tell people to make their sentences shorter and simpler.
This thing is too long, but I might tackle a couple of paragraphs at a time and wait to see if there is a response.
