Yes. When I saw the advertisement I thought it would really suit me.
Can you tell me why you replied to our advertisement?
I think that I`d be really good at this kind of work. In fact I learn so fast that I`d be looking for promotion very shortly.
Do you know exactly what you would be doing as a Laboratory Assistant?
A laboratory assistant helps to maintain scientific equipment, keep a check on the supplies in the store, and prepare the chemicals for experiments.
What sort of student do you regard yourself as? Did you enjoy studying while you were at school?
I suppose I`m a reasonable student. I passed all my tests and enjoyed studying subjects that interested me.
What were your favorite subjects at school?
Maths and chemistry were my favorite subjects at school. I also enjoyed history.
Do you have any plans for further study?
Well, I have thought about doing the part-time Chemistry Certificate course at Technical College. I think I would really benefit from doing that.
Have you ever had a job before?
Yes. I have worked part-time at a take away food store-the one just round the corner.
We have a lot of other applicants for this position. Why do you think that you deserve to get the job?
