A Job-searching Experience
Last Friday my English teacher told me that one of her friends was looking for an English governess. I asked for her friend’s name and phone number. I determined to seize the chance and have my first job.
I was a little nervous when I went to the woman’s house. I was told that the talk between us that day would decide whether I could take the job. However, when the woman, Lucy as she was called, welcomed me into her house, I felt much relaxed. I thought as long as I was sincere and friendly I would perform well. The conversation went on smoothly. She seemed much more interested in my habits and hobbies than how good I was at English. It happened that we have the same hobby: playing tennis. I told her about my family and school life. Obviously I succeeded and from then on I went to teach her English every weekend.
Lucy told me later that it was my sincerity that made her willingly accept me. It is true that we can play some tricks while seeking for a job, but remember to be sincere. It’s the secret of my success.
