This episode about recruitment happens in the developped countries like US or UK . In Poland most employers are looking for employees who will be work under pressure for badly -paid wages . This is sad realities of being employee in Poland. If you live in harsh , dire conditions of Third World like Poland , Moldova, Ukraine or India you will be abused or will have to abuse another human being only for money. This is the real face of globalisation .Of course this episode show how business life like in the international and multicultural companies. And I have watched this series like films about James Bond because I never have have such a opportunity in my life.

Hi. I want to know what does it mean "a week tomorrow" in this dialogue?

Hi Lusine,

The phrase 'a week tomorrow' means that it will happen one week after tomorrow. In other words, in eight days. If today is Monday, it will happen on Tuesday next week.

MB: After that, we'd like you to give a short presentation on how you see
WebWare as a company progressing, and how you see yourself taking us there.

Hello.Could you explain me what are the words of "taking us there" mean in this dialogue???

Hello Lusine,

'Taking us there' refers back to the idea of the company 'progressing'. If you visualise progress as a journey from the current position to a better place, then 'taking us there' is easy to understand, I think.
