A technology revolution is fast replacing human beings with machines in virtually every sector and industry in the global economy. Already, millions of workers have been permanently eliminated from the economic process, and whole work categories and job assignments have shrunk, been restructured, or disappeared. Global unemployment has now reached its highest level since the great depression of the 1930s. More than 800 million human beings are now unemployed or underemployed in the world. That figure is likely to rise sharply between now and the turn of the century as millions of new entrants into the workforce find themselves without jobs.
Corporate leaders and mainstream economists tell us that the rising unemployment figures represent short-term "adjustments" to powerful market-driven forces that are speeding the global economy in a new direction. They hold out the promise of an exciting new world of high-tech automated production, booming global commerce, and unprecedented material abundance. Millions of working people remain sceptical. In the United States, Fortune magazine found that corporations are eliminating more than 2 million jobs annually. While some new jobs are being created in the US economy, they are in the low-paying sectors and are usually temporary.
This pattern is occurring throughout the industrialised world. Even developing nations are facing increasing technological unemployment as transnational companies build state-of-the-art high-tech production facilities, letting go millions of cheap labourers who can no longer compete with the cost efficiency, quality control, and speed of delivery achieved by automated manufacturing.
With current surveys showing that less than five percent of companies around the world have even begun the transition to the new machine culture, massive unemployment of a kind never before experienced seems all but inevitable in the coming decades. Reflecting on the significance of the transition taking place, the distinguished Nobel laureate economist Wassily Leontief warned that with the introduction of increasingly sophisticated computers, "The role of humans as the most important factor of production is bound to diminish in the same way that the role of horses in agricultural production was first diminished and then eliminated by the introduction of tractors."
In all three key employment sectors - agriculture, manufacturing, and services, machines are quickly replacing human labour and promise an economy of near automated production by the mid-decades of the twenty-first century.

(adapted from an article by Jeremy Rifkin)
A: The technology revolution is greatly helping to solve the problem of unemployment.  
B: "whole work categories and job assignments have shrunk…" shrunk means "have become smaller".
C: The great depression of the 1930s produced a larger number of unemployed people.
D: "That figure is likely to rise sharply between now and the turn of the century" means that we must expect a greater number of unemployed or underemployed.
E: There is a wide body of opinion that this is a temporary phase and the global economy will soon find a new adjustment to the situation.  
F: New jobs have been created in the US economy and they are quite well paid.  
G: The development of automated manufacturing is highly efficient.
H: Both the industrialised world and the developing countries are facing the same type of economic process.
I: The Nobel economist Leontief thinks that humans will gradually be replaced by machines.  
J: Jeremy Rifkin speaks of a completely automated production by the end of the 21st century.

Your CV is the first chance you get to make a good impression on a potential employer. A top-quality CV will considerably boost your chance of getting a face-to-face interview, so it is worth spending time and effort on the content and presentation. It will make all the difference in obtaining the position you want. You must therefore highlight your skills, expertise and value.
Make sure that you are concise and accurate. Your CV should not, generally, be longer than two pages, so make sure that you tailor it specifically to the job you are applying for and include the skills, qualifications and experience which are most suited to the job.

An employer will want to find the following information in your CV:
________ - Include your name and address, a phone number, and your email address. You may also add your nationality, gender and date of birth if you wish, but they are not obligatory.
________ - This is optional, but it can be very effective in summarising your areas of expertise and characteristics. It is good to include your enthusiasm about working as a Legal Secretary and what motivates you about the industry. Use keywords and keep it brief and concise.
________ - Include any skills you have learnt such as secretarial or IT skills. Explain what you think your personal skills are.
________ - Start with your current or last employer and work backwards. You should include the dates of employment, your job title, name of employer, nature of business, responsibilities, duties and achievements. Try not to leave gaps in your employment history; if you do, it is advisable to account for such times.
________ - Write in chronological order a brief list of school, college and university qualifications together with the grades you obtained. Then list any further qualifications you have obtained, together with the names of the awarding bodies. If you are currently studying for a qualification, mention it together with any results achieved so far.
________ - This is optional but gives you a chance to portray something about your personality. Keep it simple, mention what you do in your free time and note any achievements.
________ - There is no need to write the details of your referees on your CV. Simply state that they are available on request, but make sure that you know who your referees are and that you have asked their permission to use them.

Presentation as well as content is important. Employers can receive many CVs for a job which has been advertised so it is important to create a good impression to attract their attention. Most people do not spend as much time on their CV as they should, so if you write a professional, high quality CV you will stand out from the rest.

Face to Face interviews can be very intimidating - especially if you have not been through any formal interview process before.

________. Consider the experiences you would like to share with the interviewer in advance.  Jot these down if necessary - the interviewer won't mind if you ask to reference your notes during the interview. In fact, they are most likely to be impressed!  Always make sure you review your original application form to refresh your memory. Organisations often list the competencies that they are looking for on their website so have a look through and then think of a couple of examples of when you have demonstrated these skills.
________. Make sure that you leave plenty of time for getting to your interview. If you are going to be late, let the interviewer know as soon as possible rather than leaving it to the last minute.
________. Use body language to further emphasise the points that you are making and to show interest in what the interviewer is saying.
________.  It is a two way process so it's important you display energy as well as commitment during the interview.
________. If you need a couple of seconds to think of an answer to a question, just let your interviewer know. It will show that your response is well thought through and will be more impressive than rushing in with a weak answer immediately.
________. Be prepared to ask the interviewer questions - be it about the role, the organisation or about their career in the company. Write the questions down if you think that you are likely to forget them and refer back to them at the end of the interview.
________. If you feel frustrated that you have not had the chance to share a particular experience during the interview, make sure you tell the interviewer.  You can open that discussion quite easily by expressing that you have some additional information you wish to share. The interviewer will welcome this.

Remember, that the interview is not designed to trick you, it is designed to find out further information about you and for you to find out about us. We want you to perform at your best so it is in our interest to help you achieve this by being transparent throughout the process.
