in the waiting room，I noticed there were five women ahead of me.All of them were younger and welldressed.I knew I was up against(面临)opponents better qualified by looking at the length of their resumes. Mrs.Martin，the office manager，called me into her office. “What makes you feel you are qualified for this job？”she asked. “I really need this job and there is nothing I cannot do，”I responded.
She asked me a series of questions and the interview was over.As I left her office， I turned around and said, “Mrs Martin， I know I was not qualified like other applicants， but please give me a chance .I learn quickly and can be a very productive member of your team.” I thanked her and went home tired.Oh，well，I thought tomorrow would be another day.That evening as I was getting ready for bed，I received a call from Mrs Martin. “Gina, ”she said， “you were not the most qualified applicant ， but you have so much confidence in yourself that we decided to give you a chance to prove youself.” At that moment，I remembered the time my mother pulled all of us into the living room and said, “You are all brilliant in my mind but if you ever fail at something ， don't give up.Don't fear failure .It's a way of getting us to try harder.You will succeed ，I promise.” 【语篇大意】 这是一篇记叙文。作者主要叙述了自己求职的感受和求职过 程。 56．According to the first paragraph，Gina was NOT worried about ________.

事。在众多不利的条件下，她因为自信而获得了工作机会。通过这个故事，作 者想告诉我们自信心的重要性。] B MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) Students at Horry Georgetown Technical College are doing mock(模拟) interviews to get them ready for the real world. They are learning about body language, as well as what to say, when it comes to finding a job. Job trainers said when a person walks through the door for an interview he or she has about seven seconds to make a good first impression. April Garner at Horry Georgetown Technical College said nonverbal skills are essential in getting a job. She said, “Eye contact is very important. Eye contact can convey whether or not you are sincere or honest about a particular answer.” Garner explained what you do with your hands can tell an employer a lot about a person. “Do not cross your arms. Crossing your arms can convey that you are
unapproachable. Twisting of the hair conveys nervousness. ” She said using small gestures is okay, but just don't overdo it. “People talk with their hands and their arms and they are waving them around like they are bringing in airplanes，” commented Garner. Before you even open your mouth an employer can judge on looks alone. So dress for success, give a firm handshake and get to your interview early so you can have time to calm any nerves. Also, a person trying to get a job can try breathing techniques before your interview. This helps a person relax and lower your blood pressure. Garner said people don't realize how controlling your breathing also stops you from blushing or appearing nervous. 60．What's the purpose of the author? A．To be a winner and get a good job in interview. B．To use proper body language while interviewing. C．To learn how to chat with others when in need. D．To learn a college course while in university. 答案 B [推理判断题。根据文章提到的面试时的眼睛、手等方面的身体动作

C．whether the other is kind to you or not. D．what the other really thinks about things. 答案 D [细节推断题。根据文章第五段提到的 She said, “Eye contact is very
important. Eye contact can convey whether or not you are sincere or honest about a particular answer.”可知通过眼睛交流能发现对方内心的真实想法，故答案 D 合 适。] 62．How do we reduce nervousness during interviewing? A．Crossing our arms. B．Twisting of the hair.
C．Giving a firm handshake D．Breathing techniques before your interview. 答案 D [细节理解题。 根据文章倒数三、 四行 Also, a person trying to get a job
can try breathing techniques before your interview.This helps a person relax and lower your blood pressure.可知在面试前深呼吸可以减少紧张情绪，故答案 D 合 适。] 63．What's the best title of the passage? A．Body language is important for chatting. B．Students should learn how to chat with others. C．Nonverbal communication tips for landing a job. D．Companies like to hire those who are brave. 答案 C [ 主旨大意题。根据全文对大学模拟面试突出体态语在沟通中的作
用，可知本文主要是讲如何运用非语言交流在寻找工作中占优势，故答案 C 合 适。] C Every person has a different type of personality and talent. Thus every person is highly skilled in some or the other task. A particular post or a career is well suited for a person of a specific personality. The ancient Greeks classified the temperaments of the people into four principle categories which are Sanguine (多血 质), Choleric (胆汁质), Melancholic (抑郁质), and Phlegmatic (粘液质). These four personalities suit certain types of careers and jobs. Thus it is always advisable to have an ability test and personality test done at once. The personality test will give you a set of careers, which suit your personality. The ability test on the other hand will help you to shorten list of careers that match your skills. Let's have a closer look. Sanguine: The people with Sanguine personality are very social, and tend to maintain good relations and friendships. This personality is such, that the person likes to be with people. These people excel in communication and perform functions in a task oriented manner. Human resources, coaching, teaching, marketing and sales are some of the best careers where a person with Sanguine personality will do extremely well. Choleric: People having a Choleric personality usually have a great capability to
analyze. They are very fond of planning, acquiring knowledge, configuring and inventing. People with this kind of personality must consider career options such as architecture, managers and analysts. Melancholic: The people with Melancholic type of personality are thoughtful, accurate, considerate and artistic. The Melancholic temperament is best suited for careers such as engineering, Mathematics and accounts. The strict discipline of these people and a capability to discipline others makes them really good at mathematical applications. Phlegmatic: The personality Phlegmatic, makes people planned, quiet and task oriented. People with this personality should consider fields such as web designing, programmers, economists and for that matter any place where a person should have a capability to observe well. These personalities are often considered by the people of the human resources department before appointing a person is to a particular post. 【语篇大意】 文章介绍了几种不同的性格特征，而这些性格特征和某些职 业是紧密相连的，只有利用好了这些特征，才能更好的为自己的工作服务。 64．Why are employees advised to take an ability test and personality test? A．To make them realize the power of the company. B．To make them make more money if employed. C．To make them follow the rules before work. D．To find the job or career most suitable for them. 答案 D [细节理解题。第一段第三句的 well suited for a person of a specific
personality 是本题的解题线索。] 65．If a person gets on well with his work as a salesman, he may be with ________. A．Sanguine C．Melancholic 答案 B．Choleric D．Phlegmatic

C．there are more people taking personality tests. D．your career can't be controlled by your choice. 答案 B [主旨大意题。文章是围绕着几种不同的性格特征和适合这些特征的
一些工作展开。] D What happens when the children leave to start new lives at university? Joanna Moorhead talks to some emptynesters. When Paul, our oldest, left, I remember feeling this terribley sad: it was a physical sadness, almost like walking around with a hangover. It seemed to me like the very opposite of childbirth: that had been about being given someone, my baby, whereas this was a pain, my child being taken away from me. For days the grief was very, very raw; I cried a lot of the time for the first day or two after he left. And that helped a lot, because I needed to feel sad, I needed to grieve for what I was losing. It didn't get any easier when Adam and then Alice went, either; I remember Alice leaving to go InterRailing, and that was really the start of Tom and I having the house to ourselves; and for several days after she'd gone I wandered around in a bit of daze(头晕), I felt so sad. It felt such a shock, to be suddenly disconnected from this person with whom you've been so involved, whom you've looked after for so long. Each time one of them has left, I've tried hard not to cry at the moment of parting, but usually I don't manage it. The children have all been really sweet about it—they do understand, at some level, how hard it is for me. But the thing is that the experience they're having is the complete opposite to the experience I'm having: for them, leaving home is all about excitement and adventure and something new, whereas for me it's all about being worried and anxious and feeling that my life isn't nearly so exciting or interesting now; they're not around in it the whole time. 【语篇大意】 本文是一篇夹叙夹议的记叙文。作者通过 Joanna Moorhead
