Hi I'm Neil. Thanks for joining me on English at Work - a new series of programmes set in an office, full of top tips to help you learn some useful business language which you could use in the workplace. Narrator: Hold tight please! This is Anna, on a bus going to an interview for a job as a sales executive at Tip Top Trading – one of London's fastest growing companies. How are you feeling Anna? Anna: Oh, a little nervous but I really want this job. Narrator: Well don't worry Anna, as long as you say the right things, you'll be fine. Anna: The right things!? Like what? Narrator: You need to sell yourself, be confident, not arrogant and give examples. Like: A good example that comes to mind. I'm particularly proud of. Timekeeping is important to me. Anna: Oh right. Thanks. Perhaps you can come with me? Narrator: Sorry Anna, you're on your own now – but we'll be listening in. Look! You've just arrived. Good luck! Paul: Come in.

I forgot the sugar. Paul: Thank you Denise. Anna: Hmm, so you want an example? I was the treasurer of the debating society at university. That was OK I suppose. Narrator: Come on Anna. Be more enthusiastic – the debating society is exciting! Anna: I mean… I'm particularly proud of how I organised the finances for the debating society. We had a very small budget and I had to make decisions on what to buy. Narrator: I like it! "I'm particularly proud of" - Positive but not boasting. You're doing well. Paul: Very impressive – so you're a good planner Anna! We like organised people here... ooops, silly me. I seemed to have spilt tea over your CV. Anna: Oh, do you need some help? Paul: Oh no…I'm sure it'll dry out… carry on please… Anna: Also… timekeeping is important to me… Narrator: "Timekeeping is important to me" – that's good! Anna: I always try to complete my work on time. At university I never handed my assignments in late. Paul: That's good to hear. We like punctuality here… Denise: Excuse me Paul. Sorry it's a bit late – but I thought you might like a biscuit with your tea. Paul: Hmm thanks….oh lovely, custard creams… mmm. Now Hannah, finally I wanted to ask you what exactly made you apply for this job at this company? Anna: Errrr… ooo… well. The reason I applied is…. Narrator: Yes, yes, yes Anna?
