S = Stefan, D = Daniela

S: Hello. You must be Daniela Fisher. Nice to meet you. My name’s Stefan.

D: Nice to meet you, Stefan.

S: Please take a seat. … So, we’re looking for someone to join our sales team as a key
account manager. Maybe you could start by telling me something about your
academic qualifications.

D: Yes, of course. First I trained as an office clerk and then I went to university and did a
degree in business studies, specializing in marketing.

S: OK, great. And what did you do after you completed your studies?

D: I was at BMI for five years and I gained a lot of insights into selling software to large
companies.

S: OK, but now you want to make a move into more of an office-based job?

D: Yes. I enjoyed my previous job and I learned a lot from it, but I’ve just bought a place
of my own and I’d like to spend more time at home.

S: OK, so what do you think you will be doing in five years’ time?

D: I certainly hope that I’ll be working here as a key account manager.

S: OK, great. And what about in ten years’ time?

D: I’d like to have a global role in your company where I can deal with customers from
all over the world.

S: OK, and what would you say your greatest weakness is?

D: Well, I’m definitely the type of person who is always looking to develop
professionally. But if I had to think of a weakness I have, it would probably be that
I’m a perfectionist. I always want to do things to the best of my ability and I get
frustrated if that’s not possible.

S: OK, why would that not be possible?

D: Well, it could be that the other people I’m working with aren’t doing their jobs to the
best of their ability.

S: OK, so then tell me: what kind of team player are you?

D: I love working in teams, but I think I’m a natural leader. I’m good at leading and
inspiring other people, but I also know how to delegate.

S: So what do you like to do in your free time?

D: Well, my main interest is climbing. I like to get outdoors in the mountains at the
weekend.

S: Wow, that sounds dangerous!

D: It’s all perfectly safe. You’ve got your helmet and other equipment. And all the
climbers look out for each other while we’re out there.

S: OK, but rather you than me! Right, well it’s been great talking to you, Daniela. We
should be able to give you a definite answer either way by the end of the week.

D: Thanks very much. Bye.

S: Bye.
