Philip Hart: So...what did you think?
Marcia Boardman: Well... between Sarah Timms and Daniel Watson – I think the choice is pretty obvious!
Philip Hart: Yes – so do I. Watson looked so good on paper...
Marcia Boardman: He seemed very good when I first spoke to him too..
Philip Hart: First impressions often lie!
Marcia Boardman: Indeed...I think a lot of his CV was – how shall we say? “Counterfactual”
Philip Hart: Yes – it just wasn’t true! You should never lie on your CV...
Marcia Boardman: He had very good references, though – very strange.
Philip Hart: I guess some people just like that sort of style, but he wouldn’t fit in with us...I mean, it’s important to be confident – but he was overconfident.
Marcia Boardman: I couldn’t agree more. His body language was all wrong...he came across as arrogant.
Philip Hart: Then he gave very vague answers – no specific details of what exactly he’d done in his job...
Marcia Boardman: Whereas Sarah Timms...
Philip Hart: ...knew exactly what she was talking about.
Marcia Boardman: Yes, she was very convincing, self-assured, but not arrogant.
Philip Hart: She’d clearly done some research on the company, and knew what she was talking about.
Marcia Boardman: I thought her presentation was excellent.
Philip Hart: Yes, it was, but I am a little worried about how much experience she has...
Marcia Boardman: Yes, true, but she seems very ready to take on the challenges the role would offer her.
Philip Hart: So? Who do we give the job to?
Marcia Boardman: Sarah!
Philip Hart: Yes, I agree entirely!
Marcia Boardman: Great! I’ll phone her straight away offering the post...and I’ll write a rejection to Mr. Watson!
Philip Hart: OK.
