Listen to the dialogue between Head of Marketing (HM) and Marketing Manager (MM)
HM: Well, let me give you the bad news first of all.
MM: Don’t tell me - we can’t take on as many people as we wanted.
HM: I’m afraid not. We can only hire three full-time marketing assistants.
MM: There isn’t too bad, I suppose, although four or five would have been ideal.
HM: if we find we can’t manage, then we’ll have a strong case for hiring another one.
MM: Anyway, let’s talk about the job recruitments.
HM: I think the minimum requirements should be a marketing-related degree or two year’s work experience in a marketing role.
MM: definitely. We’ve haven’t got time to offer much in the way of training.
HM: But you’re happy to consider new graduates?
MM: I think so, as long as they’ve at least had some sort of proper work experience.
HM: I’m pleased about that; I always think new graduates are worth considering.
MM: Yes, they’re often more driven and more hardworking in my experience.
HM: And let’s face it- you don’t have to pay a new graduate as much money as someone with a few year’s experience.
MM: well that’ true, I suppose. So where do think we should advertise?
HM: Marketing Week would be the most obvious place to start – most marketers read that these days.
MM: And what about people who are just leaving university?
HM: Well we need to call a few university careers centers and find out what their procedures are.
MM: And what salary are you going to start them on?
HM: 6,000 RMB per month – I think that’s reasonable.
MM: And we mustn’t forget to include infomp3ation about other benefits.
