ESL Conversation Questions: What do you do? (what’s your job?)


You must be Clive. I’m Jenny.

Nice to meet you, Jenny.

Welcome to the company. You work in marketing, don’t you?

No, I work in accounts. I’m the new payroll clark.

Oh. So Jeremy’s your boss, then?

Yeah. I like him. He’s nice.

Wait till you get to know him, you might change your mind!

Really. What’s he like?

Only joking. He’s really nice. Just a bit disorganized, that’s all.

I’m going to sort him out!

That won’t be easy, he’s been in that job for twenty years.

Twenty years? That’s a long time.

Yes. He’s been here longer than anyone else.

What’s your job here?

I work in customer support.

What do you do?

I’m a technician. I deal with the problems that the call center people can’t sort out.

Sounds like fun.

It can be interesting. But by the time customers reach me, they are often pretty upset or angry, so I have to calm them down before trying to solve their problems.

Quite a challenge, then.

Yes, but I like it. I like being able to solve problems for people.
