I work on Saturdays and in the school holidays. Saturdays are busy because that’s when everyone goes shopping. Our shop sells clothes and accessories for men, women and children. I work in the children’s department. It can be crazy sometimes, but it’s fun. I work during my summer holidays when I’m not at university. I like my job, but lots of people don’t like coming to see me because they hate dentists. My job is very difficult, but I like it because I love flying. I work in a hospital in the city centre.

I have had many face-to-face job interviews before, and normally I don’t get particularly nervous. However, for a telephone interview, where I couldn’t see the interviewer, I was very apprehensive!
