M: Good morning, Miss Yang. I?m Kevin Carter, the Administration Manager. Take a seat, please. W: Oh, is that your wife, Mr. Carter? She is so beautiful.
M: Thank you. Ah… Miss Yang, I?ve gone through your resume. I?d like to ask you some questions now, if you don?t mind.
W: Of course not. please go ahead.
M: Well, can you tell me why you would like to work as a medical representative with us?
W: I really like this kind of work, and having been a doctor for three years, I want to apply for this position for a change.
M: Don?t you think it?s a pity for you to leave your present job?
W: To some extent, it is. I have learned a lot in the hospital. But I would like to try a different kind of life. By the way, could you tell me how much the new job pays?
M: Sure. There is a five-month probationary试用的period and you can only get RMB2,000 for each month. After that, we?ll determine your salary according to your performance.
W: Oh, I see. Then, what about the paid holidays, insurance, and things like that?
M: Every employee in our company enjoys life insurance and unemployment insurance. In addition, they enjoy two-week paid holidays.
W: That sounds fine. How much time will it take for me to be promoted here?
M: I?m not sure. It depends on your ability and performance. Maybe we?ll send you to one of ou r branches, if you like.
W: No problem. I hate staying at one place all the time. But in which cities do you have your branches? And, where is your company based (把总部设在…)?
M: Our company is based in New York, with branches in many cities, such as Philadelphia, Beijing and London.
