A: Thank you for coming for interview last Tuesday . we have considered your application carefully , but we’re afraid that we are unable to offer you the post . While your secretarials skills are well up to the standard required , I did not feel that your commend of French was sufficiently good for our purposes . In addition , you seem to lack confidence in dealing with people , which will certainly be a handicap if you want to work as an receptionist . May I suggest that you might do better to look for a job involving ruling office work ?

I have been a journal ten years , I often interview people . Today I am at a Parents’ meeting with high school , I ask some parents questions . I asked the first parent , whether she minded telling me what they thought of the school , she told me that they were quite pleased with it , and then , I asked what grade was her child in , she said that she had a son at the fifth grade , he was quite good at science , but he was wake in English . Then I interviewed some other parents , and they gave a lot of information about this school and their children . After three hours interview , I came about the interview and report the information to the public .
