Job Enquiry - IELTS Listening Part 1 Transcript


Hello, is that Sam Walker?

Yes, it is. How can I help you?

This is Amy calling from the Harvey Entertainment Agency. How are you?

Oh, I'm well, thank you.

That's good to hear. I'm calling as you are registered with our job agency last year and we have had a job come up that you might be interested in.

Great! Can you tell me about it?

Yes, of course. The job is with a very popular family resort located on Jameson Island.

It's a temporary job until the beginning of September.

Sounds interesting. Let me just get a pen and paper to write that down. How do you spell Jamieson please?

It's J-A-M-I-E-S-O-N. [Q-1]

OK. When does the job start?

The resort opens on 10th next month. So, you will start on the next dav. 11th July. [Q-2]

What will I do exactly?

Let me see. There is a vacancy for a tour guide.

Oh, sorry, it looks like this position was filled yesterday.

So, the other position here is for a waiter. [Q-3]

Okay, that sounds interesting. What experience is required for the job?

They want someone with at least two years' experience on the same position, and also someone who knows how to communicate with children. [Q-4]

No problem. I have over five years experience related to this type of work, and I have also worked in a kindergarten before, so I'm sure I'm a good fit for the job.

Fantastic! There is another requirement which is a little more unusual - they would like someone who has musical talent!

Oh! Well, I can play the guitar pretty well.

It's not that exactly

- they already have a resident band

- they really want someone who can sing well.[Q-5]

The activities at the club involve a lot of music to entertain the quests. Would you be able to do that?

Hmm…Maybe……can I think about it? What else do I need to know about the job?

They also want their employees to be able to drive.

Yeah, I can do that, but I don't have my own car at the moment. Is that a problem?

I don't think so. They need a person with a licence so that they can travel around various parts of the resort by car, as it's very large. [Q-6]

But there are resort vehicles provided for that purpose.


Are there any special benefits for employees with this job?

Yes, there are. Of course you get free accommodation.

The resort also provides transport for employees, which is free of charge. [Q-7]

That's good. What about meals?

Since I will be staying on the island, I guess there won't be much choice regarding the food.

That is true, and so the resort provides lunch at a very low price. I think that's a pretty good perk.

Sure, that sounds great.

So, do you think you would be interested in attending an interview for this job?

Yes, I think it sounds interesting. And you said it finishes in September?

That's right. The 3rd September.

Okay, I will book you in for an interview on Wednesday.

Oh dear, I'm sorry but I have an appointment at the hospital on Wednesday.

Is there any chance for an interview on another day?

Yes. No problem. We can do it on Thursday. [Q-8]

How does 10 am suit you?

That sounds perfect. Thanks a lot. What do I need to bring?

A resume is a must - just to let you know that the one I have on file is from last year, so perhaps something has changed since then?

Yes, that's true, I do need to update it. I'll bring that with me. [Q-9]

And also we need a color photo of you taken within the past 2 months. [Q-10]

We will provide it to the resort for your ID card, so we don't accept black and white photos.

Okay, got it. Thanks, and I appreciate your call. Look forward to seeing you soon.

See you then. I'll send you an email confirmation.
