Can I get you anything? Yes, please. I’d like something to eat. I think I’ll have the chicken salad, please. Would you like anything to drink? Yes, please. I’ll have an iced tea. OK. Is that everything? Yes, that’s all. I might order a dessert later, but I don’t want anything else now. At home Oh, no! I lost my cell phone. Really? That’s terrible. It could be somewhere in the house. It’s not. I’ve looked everywhere for it. I don’t think it’s anywhere in the house. It could be somewhere in the office. You could have left it there last night. That’s true. I haven’t checked there yet. Don’t worry. I’m sure it’s under a cushion somewhere. It’ll turn up soon.

JOHN

No. It’s an amazing speech. In 2005, Steve Jobs made an opening speech at Stanford University’s graduation ceremony in America. It began with, “Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories.” And that’s exactly what he did. It was very personal. It was emotional, and it was full of good

advice. You can watch it on YouTube.

Welcome, everyone. Today, our guest, Alan Smith, is going to talk to us about working as a sales executive. Let’s give him a warm welcome, please. Hi, everyone. It’s nice to be here to talk to you today. I’ve worked in sales for most of my career. And I’d like to say it’s a very rewarding career. It’s not a regular office job. You will need to work long hours. Many sales executives spend a lot of time on the road or traveling overseas. What skills and qualifications do you need for the job, Alan? You need to be confident, and you need to have good communication skills. You need to be reliable, and you need to always be on time for all your appointments. You need to be

qualification. However, if you have a degree in business or management, that will look good on your resumé. What do you like about the job?

You get to meet lots of people and

What’s the salary like?

ALAN

Well, it depends on the industry, but it can be very good. I started at $55,000

a

year and my salary rose to $70,000,

plus bonuses. But I had to work long hours. That sounds good. Does the position

ALAN

have good career prospects? Yes, it does. There are good career prospects for talented sales executives. You can look forward to a career as

a

sales manager, an area or regional

sales manager, and eventually a sales

HOST

director. What are the disadvantages of the job?

ALAN

It can be a lonely life because you’re

HOST

traveling a lot of the time. You spend a lot of time away from your family and friends. What are the main tasks of a sales

executive?

ALAN

Well, I’ve prepared a handout for you, but I’ll just run through the main

tasks with you now. In a nutshell, you have to sell as many of your company’s products as possible. This means visiting customers regularly and finding new markets and business opportunities. You also have to represent your company at trade fairs and other events.

A Have you read J.K. Rowling’s first detective novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling, about the private detective, Cormoran Strike? It’s such an amazing book!

B Yeah, it’s such a great story. I couldn’t put it down. It’s full of such interesting characters. I’m really into detective novels, and this was a good one!

A How interesting! I thought you liked romance novels

B No way! Romantic novels are such rubbish. They’re not my thing. I like thrillers, fantasy novels and I’m crazy about detective novels. They’ve always got such interesting plots.

Transcript 20 When I was nine years old I went on vacation with a friend and her family to Cape Cod in Massachusetts. We stayed at her grandparents’ house. It was a large, white house on a grassy clifftop with beautiful views of the ocean from the large porch. It was the kind of house you read about in books. It was a vacation I will never forget. We went to the beach every day. It was a huge, sandy beach. We looked for crabs in the rock pools, and we collected shells. We walked along the beach and climbed over the rocks below the cliffs looking for caves. You had to watch the time. If the tide came in, it could be dangerous. We swam in the ocean, and we went bodysurfing, too. There were big waves. Some days we went out in the fishing boat, and we caught lots of fish. Other days we took the ferry across to a little nearby fishing town and bought candy that looked like pebbles. The family moved to Cape Cod soon after that vacation, and we lost touch with them. I have been back to Cape Cod since that vacation, but I’ve never been able to find the white house on the top of the cliff. It will stay as a fond memory.
