The lesson is very useful for me, especially at the moment when the new owner is changing the structure of the organisation. Yes, it's not good news for all of us learning that the company is acquired by another group. I feel as we are in defeat in a battle. Every one of us is preparing for being given the boot.

This is very useful lesson and realy good task to write in discussion. Thank you!

vear good

I am my team. And to have a proven track record I am pulling my weight every day.

Good lesson. Thanks

I appreciate your method and good site! Thank you for help me to learn more English! It will be very important to me in this moment. Best regards.

Hi,
can someone please explain me what is 'track record' ? i just don't get it.
According to the dictionary it's "all the past achievements or failures of a person". how can the company proof the track record of someone?
many thanks in advance!
Anna

Hi Anna,

When we say someone has a proven track record it means that they have done things in the past which prove their talent or ability. In the context of recruitment, this would mean the person's experience and achievements in their previous positions.

A person without experience does not have a proven track record, for example, so it is harder to judge how good or bad they will be in a particular role.
