[James] Hey mate.
[Dylan] Hey. [James] You’ve fixed yourself up nicely.
[Dylan] Thanks. [James] Ready for your big event?
[Dylan] Hmm I don’t know I’ve never been to an interview before and it’s pretty stressful.
[James] Oh you will be fine mate, let’s get in.
[Dylan] Cool, thanks. Everybody gets nervous about interviews. Just remember what we practiced last night.
Arrive five to ten minutes early for your interview. Dress appropriately. Be confident Research the business. Prepare some questions to ask. Practice the interview beforehand. [Dylan] Yep, got it. Here goes nothing. [James] Ok we’re here. Just
remember to smile and be yourself. Hi my name is Dylan, James mentioned that you’re looking to hire some more staff. I would love to work here and brought in my resume. [Marie] Oh hi Dylan. I’m Marie, the manager. Thanks for coming. I am looking for staff and you’ve actually caught me at a good time. Would you like to sit down there and have a chat?
[Dylan] Thanks, yes that would be great. Great. The job I have open is for a
waiter but occasionally it may be necessary for that person to help out in
the kitchen or with stocktakes when we get busy. Why do you want to work here?
[Dylan] My cousin James tells me that this is a great place to work and I really enjoy
helping others. I’m a good listener and a great communicator.
[Marie] Yes. That is important
indeed. What type of experience do you have working at a cafe?
[Dylan] Well have no specific experience in this area, but I have a positive attitude and good
communication skills. Also I have been helping as a volunteer at some catering
events organized by my high school. I helped cook the barbecue, serve
customers and manage payments along with other volunteers.
[Marie] That is relevant, which is great. This role requires you to work on the weekend and in the evening would
that be a problem? [Dylan] That wouldn’t be a problem. I am
available to work on weekends and for a couple of hours after school on Monday
Tuesday and Wednesday. I can catch the bus here directly from my house and my
mum and dad have said they can drop me off and pick me up.
[Marie] That’s what you know I think you’ll fit in quite well, but I would like you to undertake a
trial shift first. Are you available tomorrow at 3:30?
[Dylan] Well yes, thank you so much for the opportunity I’ll be here tomorrow at
3:30 p.m. What shoes and clothes should i wear?
[Marie] Great question what you’re wearing right now is just perfect.
