, , , . , , ?

Dan Brooks: Yes, of course. I know that your company has an excellent reputation. That's why I'd like to work for it. Besides, I have always wanted to work with a smaller company, which consequently develops. 
, . , . . , , .

I see. That's good to hear! Would you mind telling me a little bit about your current occupation? 
. ! ?

Dan Brooks: I'm a broker at a large international company at the moment. I mostly deal with clients and I handle all aspects of their accounts.

Yes, with pleasure. I have graduated from the University of Kent and I have a degree in Accountancy and Finance. After graduation I have also attended workshops for experienced specialists. I've gained lots of new financial theory and practice there, as well as a certificate of course completion. 
, . . . , .

Interviewer: That's good to know, Mr. Brooks. I would like to ask you one more question about your interest in our company. Why do you think that you are the right candidate for the position of head broker?

, , . , .

Interviewer: Well, you might just be the right person we've been looking for. Do you have any questions 
, , , . - ?

Dan Brooks: Yes, I have one question. If I were hired, how many accounts would I be handling? 
, . , ?

Interviewer: You'd be handling about a third of our clients, as you'd be working with two other head brokers. Is there anything else you'd like to ask? 
, . - ?

Dan Brooks: No, that's it. Thank you. 
, . .

Interviewer: Ok, then. We will send our employment contract for your review this week, Mr. Brooks. And we hope to see you soon among our staff.
