职场白领口语对话第2期:会打电话很关键

「无法改变想法的人,无法改变任何事。」– 乔治‧萧伯纳 (剧作家)

Calling a company

A:ABC Company, my name is Lucy. How can I help you?

B:Hello, Lucy, this is Monica. I’m calling for the accountant position. I saw the information about the vacancy on your company’s website. Is it still available?

A:Thank you for your interest. The position is still available. Have you already sent your CV to us?

B:No, not yet. First, I want to check about the availability and see if you could give more information.

A:It is urgent for us to fill this position now and I would like to stress that English is a must because of the international contacts and most likely traveling abroad very soon. If all these is not problem for you, I recommend you to mention these in your cover letter and send it to me directly.

B:The notification period of my current job is not that long and I’m quite profession to English and I am happy with the traveling abroad as I’m good dealing with the people from other cultures. It makes the whole job even more interesting. I will send my resume to you still this week.

A:ABC公司,你好,我是Lucy,请问您有什么事?

B:Lucy,你好!我是Monica。我想询问一下贵公司的会计岗位。我在贵公司的主页上看到了职位招聘信息,请问这个信息现在还有效吗?

A:谢谢您的关心。目前我们还没有找到何时的人选。您给我们投简历了吗?

B:还没有。我想先确认一下这个职位现在是不是还空缺着,同时想多了解一下。

A:目前我们急需这方面的人才,我们也希望应聘者的有较好的英语水平,因为这个职位可能需要经常和出差国外,和外国人接触,如果这些条件您都符合,我建议您直接写一封信给我们,直接寄给我就可以了。

B:我目前的工作的通知时间不是很长,我本人英语水平也很不错,另外我擅长与不同国家的人打交道,喜欢出差国外。我现在对这份工作更加有兴趣了。我会在本周内给您发简历的。

Is it still available?

请问这个信息现在还有效吗?

available 有用的,有效的,如:Several cars are available within this price range.

在这个价格范围内,有好几种汽车可供选购。

Do you have a room available?

你们有空房间吗?

同义词:obtainable 可获得的;可取得的

如:Are his records still obtainable?

他的唱片还能买到吗?

区别:

错句: Details are available by calling this number.

订正: Details can be obtained by calling this number.

翻译: 通过拨打这个电话号码可以获得详情。

分析: 这里强调细节的“获得”,需通过拨打电话,而available只是客观表示细节的存在。

注意:近几年available比obtainable和procurable用得更为普遍。
