How to Use

Interviewer: Please describe yourself.

Carly: I grew up in Paris, France. I majored in chemistry with a minor in English. After I graduated from university, I got a job as a high school chemistry teacher, but now I am looking for a job at a company in the private sector.

Interviewer: Why are you trying to leave your job as a high school teacher?

Carly: I enjoy working with kids, but I think my skills are better suited for research.

Interviewer: Why do you think that?

Carly: I think working in research would allow me to work more creatively than working as a teacher. Also, I am interested in trying something new and having a chance to use my knowledge of chemistry.

Interviewer: Then, why did you decide to become a high school teacher after you graduated?

Carly: At the time, I thought it was the best choice for me and I wanted to help students enjoy chemistry as much as I do.

Interviewer: I see.
