Я собирала материал для этой книги много лет, так как английский и бизнес неразлучны в моей жизни. Я лингвист, но работаю в сфере финансов уже больше 10 лет. Проходила собеседования сама, проводила собеседования, подбирая подчиненных, подготавливала друзей к собеседованиям. В моем кругу друзей: рекрутеры, топ-менеджеры и сотрудники HR-департаментов. Поэтому и не случайно у меня возникла в голове идея создания этой книги-подсказки-шпаргалки. Наслаждайтесь, пользуйтесь, развивайтесь!

This book gives an introduction to the English law of contract. In this new and fully updated edition the book retains the primary focus of the first edition: it is designed to introduce the lawyer trained in a civil law jurisdiction to the method of reasoning in the common law, and in particular to the English law of contract. It is written for the lawyer-whether student or practitioner-from another jurisdiction who already has an understanding of a (different) law of contract, but who wishes to discover the way in which an English lawyer views a contract. However, setting English contract law generally in the context of other European and international approaches, the book forms an introductory text for the English student, who can see not only how English contract law works but also get a glimpse of different ways of thinking about some of the fundamental rules of contract law. After a general introduction to the common law system-how a common lawyer reasons and finds the law-the book explains the principles of the law of contract in English law covering all the aspects of a contract from its formation to the remedies available for breach, whilst directing attention in particular to those areas where the approach of English law is in marked contrast to that taken in many civil law systems.

In this tough job market, where three-fourths of job openings are not advertised, it appears networking plays a powerful role in securing employment. This book focuses on a less-than-obvious networking strategy, the informational interview. An informational interview is an interview with a professional that is conducted by a student or job seeker with the intention of finding out more about the professional’s occupation or career field. The value of the informational interview is shared through the voices of eight college students and the corresponding eight professionals who offered the students internships as a result of the students’ informational interviews with the professionals. This book reveals how structure and interaction work together in this context to foster internship offers. This book also juxtaposes an informational interview with a formal job interview and reveals that an informational interview addresses many of the limitations of a formal job interview. With internships becoming increasingly competitive to secure and with unemployment on the rise, this form of networking appears to be a promising way to tap the hidden job market.
This book has been prepared to offer basic tips to job seekers especially freshers. The aim is to help them learn how to write a good formal/business letter, Curriculum Vitae, Resume as well as how better to fill Application forms. It further provides things before interview, during interview and after interview. While in the last part of this book a reader gets to know what things does the employer want in a graduate today.

Students usually study the English language for seven years in Iranian schools.

By combining qualitative and quantitative methods, this study provided solid research evidence of the washback impact of the UEE on various aspects of Iranian Teachers' curriculum planning and instruction.
