PART B_1
Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Hello, Emma. Could you tell me about your job?
Sure, I am an HR staff. I have been working for 3 years now.

That’s good to hear. By the way, what are your hiring strategies?
Now, we rely on job advertisements on social media almost exclusively.

That is the trend nowadays. Joining job fairs is also a great way to find the right people.
I agree, that’s why the company gave up posting jobs in print newspapers to find potential candidates.

I think there’s nothing with that. People use the internet every minute of their day.
No doubt about it.

Hello, Emma. You work in the HR department, right? Does our company post job alerts online?
Certainly! Now, we __________ posting in-depth content about our company on social media almost exclusively.

That’s popular nowadays.
Also, posting on mini-billboards at stops along one of Chicago’s commuter train lines is __________ to find the right people.

Why do you say so?
Well, it could be seen by thousands of tech professionals walking downtown every day.

Now, I understand why our company gave up posting jobs in print newspapers to find potential candidates.
