Mark: OK. There is the Mosquito Herald. I have just finished reading The Mosquito Herald. There is the building. Well! The Mosquito Herald! There is a sign in the window. It says: “journalist wanted”. They want a journalist. They need a journalist. I used to work on the college newspaper and I have written a couple of articles on the internet. I am going to try and get a job.
(Knocking)
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Come in.
Mark: Hello.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Hello. How are you doing?
Mark: Good thanks. How are you?
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Very well thank you.
Mark: Good. I was just walking by and I saw the sign in the window: “journalist wanted”.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Yeah, that is right.
Mark: Are you still looking for somebody?
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Yes, we are.
Mark: Well, I don’t have a lot of experience but I worked on the college paper when I was a student and I have written a couple of things on the internet.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: What did you write on the internet?
Mark: I just wrote a couple of articles. One was about a village that I used to live in.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Traditional village?
Mark
: Yeah.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Where was the village?
Mark: In Thailand.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Oh Thailand. That is very interesting.
Mark: And another one was about a trip that I did in Australia.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Mm. Where was it? Did you go into the desert or?
Mark: Yeah. Through the desert. Yeah.
The Man in the Newspaper Office: That sounds fascinating. So you have a bit of experience. So yes, why not?
Mark: Ok. So, I have got the job?
The Man in the Newspaper Office: You have got the job.
Mark: How much is the pay?
The Man in the Newspaper Office: Well the pay is pretty good actually. It is about..Gosh..Well the starting fee is twelve thousand dollars every month.
Mark: Twelve thousand dollars a month! Wow! This Mosquito City is a really good place. Free food. Free hotel. Friendly people. Twelve thousand dollars a month! Great! What is your name?
Frank: Frank.
Mark: Nice to meet you, Frank!
Frank: What is your name again?

    Hi Mark

    It’s really interesting conversations between two fellows through which the learner like me can get benefits from it. one is how to deal to get a job with the potential employer at the very beginning and one is how to write and speak English that way if there is really such a situation with a job hunter.finally, thank you very much for your right navigation.

    Thank you very much once again.

    regards

    Krishna
