Practice exercise: Philip Hart and Marcia Boardman discuss which candidate to appoint. Transcript Philip Hart: So...what did you think? Marcia Boardman: Well... between Sarah Timms and Daniel Watson -- I think the choice is pretty obvious! Philip Hart: Yes -- so do I. Watson looked so good on paper... Marcia Boardman: He seemed very good when I first spoke to him too.. Philip Hart: First impressions often lie! Marcia Boardman: Indeed...I think a lot of his CV was -- how shall we say? "Counterfactual" Philip Hart: Yes -- it just wasn't true! You should never lie on your CV... Marcia Boardman: He had very good references, though -- very strange. Philip Hart: I guess some people just like that sort of style, but he wouldn't fit in with us...I mean, it's important to be confident -- but he was overconfident. Marcia Boardman: I couldn't agree more. His body language was all wrong...he came across as arrogant. Philip Hart: Then he gave very vague answers -- no specific details of what exactly he'd done in his job... Marcia Boardman: Whereas Sarah Timms... Philip Hart: ...knew exactly what she was talking about. Marcia Boardman: Yes, she was very convincing, self-assured, but not arrogant. Philip Hart: She'd clearly done some research on the company, and knew what she was talking about. Marcia Boardman: I thought her presentation was excellent. Philip Hart: Yes, it was, but I am a little worried about how much experience she has... Marcia Boardman: Yes, true, but she seems very ready to take on the challenges the role would offer her. Philip Hart: So? Who do we give the job to? Marcia Boardman: Sarah! Philip Hart: Yes, I agree entirely! Marcia Boardman: Great! I'll phone her straight away offering the post...and I'll write a rejection to Mr. Watson! Philip Hart: OK.
