APPLYING FOR A JOB: JOB ADS

In most parts of the world it is common to submit a typed CV* (curriculum vitae - British English) or resume (American English). This contains all the unchanging information about you: your education, background experience. This usually accompanies a letter of application. Interviews may take many forms in business today: from the traditional one-to-one interview to panel interview where several candidates are interviewed by a panel of interviewers, to "deep-end" interviews where applicants have to demonstrate how they can cope in actual business situations. Moreover, the atmosphere of an interview may vary from the informal to the formal and from the kindly to the sadistic. Fashions seem to change quite rapidly in interview techniques and the only rules that applicants should be aware of may be "Expect the unexpected" and "Be yourself"!

In different countries, different trades and different grades, the salary that goes with a job may be only part of the package: perks* like a company car or cheap housing loans, bonuses paid in a "thirteenth month", company pension schemes, generous holidays or flexible working hours may all contribute to the attractiveness of a job.

* CV - a short written account of a persons' education and past employment, used esp. when they are looking for a new job.

* perk - money, goods, or an advantage that one gets regularly and legally from one's work in addition to one's pay.
