First, we will check the points in this lesson. Please repeat after me.
|1.||At the end of the interview, you may have an opportunity to ask a few questions, so be prepared for that.|
|2.||It is a good idea to express your eagerness to work for the company again. And do not forget to show your appreciation to the interviewer for sharing his/her time.|
|3.||It is considered polite to send a thank you letter to the person who interviewed you within a day of the interview.|
We will read aloud the dialogue below. Once we are done, we will switch roles and read aloud the dialogue again. I will check your pronunciation and intonation.
(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)
|A:||Well, that just about wraps it up. Do you have any questions for me?|
|B:||Yes, actually. Roughly, how many people are currently working in the sales department?|
|A:||We have about 25 sales associates at this branch.|
|B:||And who would I be reporting to?|
|A:||I’m one of two direct supervisors, so you’d be reporting to me and the other sales manager.|
|B:||Okay, thank you. I don’t think I have any other questions.|
|A:||I’ve enjoyed meeting you. Thank you for coming in today. We hope to contact you by next week at the latest.|
|B:||Thank you very much for your time; it was a pleasure meeting with you.|
|B:||I look forward to hearing from you ―and hopefully joining your company―soon. Thank you.|
Now, let’s review some words and expressions from part B_2.
(Please review the mispronounced words and expressions from part B_2.)
Now, please answer the following questions. I will check if your sentences are complete and if the grammar is correct.
|1.||Have you ever prepared a list of questions to ask the interviewer at the end of the interview?|
|2.||Have you ever sent a thank you letter after an interview?|
|3.||Do you think a thank you letter is necessary? Why or why not?|
Now, let’s review your answers.
(Please review your student’s answers by sending the correct answers in complete sentences. After that, ask your student to read aloud his or her corrected answers.)
Let’s do a role play with the given situations.
You are in in the final stage of an interview. Ask some questions to the interviewer and wrap-up the interview with him/her.
(Your tutor will pretend to be the interviewer.)
– Yes, actually, I have a question…
