Exercise 6. Read and translate the text.


Today the work you do to earn a living influences your way of life. It affects your choice of friends and the way you spend your leisure time. Work is the central activity around which people plan their lives.

Applying for a job is a time consuming process. After you have decided what kind of job your are looking for and have out of list of job places, you are ready to apply for some of these jobs.

Before getting a job you must prepare and fill in (out) many documents and forms.

Most employers require that you fill out an application form. This form asks for information about an applicant, education and experience, and often your interests or hobbies. An application form often is a test that tells the employing company whether or not the applicant can give the necessary information. Thus, it’s better to ask whether, you may take the application blank home where you have time to read it carefully and answer the questions completely.


Exercise 7. What should you do to find a job? Find the logical

sequence of the steps you should take.




Exercise 8. Examine your skills and abilities. There are two

essential steps in the job-hunting process: research and

planning. Research means examining your skills and

finding out where you can apply them. Planning means

deciding how you will present your skills to

prospective employer. You should go through these

steps carefully whether you are looking for your first

job or you are interested in changing to a better job.

Look at the following examples of skills/responsibilities

and personality traits and find the ones that apply to you.
