Elementary ‐The Office ‐ Interview Skills Part 2 ‐Discussing Your Background (C0238)
Mr. Parsons: Now, Miss Childs passed on your resume to me and I’ve had the chance to look it over and I must say I’m quite impressed.
Rebecca: Thank you very much. I’ve tried to keep it short and clear. If there’s any questions please feel free to ask me.
Mr. Parsons: Well yes, I do have a number of questions, but perhaps first you could give me a brief overview I’d like to get a little bit of an idea of your background. Rebecca: yes of course. Well as you can see from the resume I’m up and grew up in Brooklyn, New York, although our family moved to London when I was quite young, at around rook.
Mr. Parsons: Ah I see, so you were actually educated in Europe?
Rebecca: yes precisely. Although I was born in the US, I would definitely call London home. But as you see I’ve actually spent a lot of my life moving from country to country. My Father was inthe oil business before he retired so we also spent a number of years in Saudi Arabia too.
Mr. Parsons: Very interesting. So it seems you had quite an adventurous childhood.
Rebecca: Absolutely! We were never still for too long. But now I’m really looking to settle down.
Mr. Parsons: I see. Okay, well let’s move on to discuss your education shall we?
