I=Interviewer A=Almudena Ribera
I So,Ms Ribera, I'd like to ask you a few questions about your professional esperience and qualifications, if I may?
A Sure .
I Now your CV says that you've esperience of dealing with clients from different countries.Could you tell me which countries you've dealt with?
A My department publishes translations of foreign books. Most of them are English language books so I deal with America a lot and Britain.And sometimes Italy,too.
I So ,America,Britain and Italy. So your English is obviously very good and you speak Italian too. Could you tell me how good your French is ?
A It's OK. I did French as part of my degree but it isn't as good as my English or Italian.
I So,that's reasonable French. Now, on your CV you say you have good keyboard skills. Could you tell me how many words a minute you can type?
A About 50. I learned to type as part of my studies but I need to practise a bit more.
I You're not the only one. I still use two fingers! And what about computers? Could you tell me a bit about which programs you use?
A At tne moment I use Microsoft Word as I only need the computer for correspondence. In my last job I aslo used Powerpoint for our presentations.
I You used Powerpoint? Did you design the presetations yourself?
A The Training Director planned them but I had to do the actual computer work and make sure it worked properly during the presetations.
I So that was at Informatica. But it says here in your CV that you left in 1996.Could you tell me why you left?
A I think the main reason was languages.I liked my job at Informatica but all our clients were Spanish so I never got to use my languages. Then one day I saw the advertisement for the job at Edicioned Gomez and I'd always been interested in publishing, so I applied.
I So why do you want to change jobs now?
A Well, I still feel that I don't get enough practice with my languages...
