Interviewer: I'd like to know the salary you epect.
Applicant1: My salary requirement may be too high, and I hope my primary will not be lower than RMB 4,000. First, I think I am an ecellent graduate. Though there will be a transition period, I will soon make profits for the company. What's more, I think if a company is willing to pay a high salary for a post, it also indicates its importance. And only in this situation can I be convinced that I can get more learning opportunities and better prospects2.
Interviewer: I'd like to know your salary epectations.
Applicant: Since I am a recent graduate , there will be a transition period after I enter the company. So at the beginning, the profits I make for the company will be limited and I don't have specific requirements. But man has to survive. So I hope the salary will be enough to help me to be economically independent from my parents.

C：My former colleagues told me three secrets of success in foreign-affiliated companies. First, the ability to speak English well.
C：Second, an outgoing and sociable2 wife. And third, not getting involved in office politics.
F：I agree with the first and the last. You have to be careful when you step into the eecutive3 jungle and it's best to stay away from office politics, especially in a big organization like ours.
F：The English ability is helpful but you already have a fine command of it. I'm not so sure about the second.
F：I have a good idea. Why don't you bring your wife to our place for dinner net week? She can compare notes with my wife.
