BEP 159 – Talking about your Job

BEP 159 - Describing your Job

This is the first in a two-part Business English lesson on talking about your job and company.

The way you talk about your job gives clues to what you’re like as an employee or colleague. So, it’s important to consider your audience. For example, if you’re talking to a recruiter or future employer, you want to be brief, but still provide enough details to give an accurate description and make a good impression.

In this lesson, we’ll talk about ways to explain the basic aspects of your job and give details about your duties. We’ll also cover ways to talk about any special projects you’ve worked on and how to discuss your job satisfaction.

We’ll be listening to Ronda, a recruiter, and Stella, an IT manager. Ronda is going to help Stella find a new IT position, but first she wants to get some more information about her current job. They are meeting over lunch at a restaurant.

Listening Questions

1. What is the name of Stella’s current employer?
2. What are two of Stella’s responsibilities?
3. Why does Stella feel like she can’t grow at her current job?
