Manager: Looking through your C.V., I see that you graduated from Oklahoma State University. Can you tell me what training you have had that would specifically relate to the cable television Industry?
Engineer: Well, I’ve attended some conferences in this field. But the most relevant training I’ve had was in computer design. I believe I could integrate that knowledge with my college degree to design a program for your company.
Manager: I see. Did you have anything specific in mind?
Engineer: Well, I notice that you currently provide an on-screen TV Guide. At the moment, it just scrolls the names of the programs in a repeated loop. If you have many channels, you have to wait a long time to find the item you are interested in. I believe I could design a program that makes the guide interactive. Customers could go right to the program they want.
Manager: That’s impressive. How would you make the pay?
Engineer: Tie it in with the pay-per-view services, and perhaps it could be a money-maker.
Manager: I see you have several good ideas. Now, I just have a few questions about your C.V. I notice that there is a five-year gap between your last job and now.
Engineer: Yes, I took a break from work during that time. I had a baby, and as she was born with a handicap, I decided to suspend my career. But I have continued to keep up with the Industry through conferences and professional journals.
