ACongratulations! I heard that you are going to take a two-week training course in the headquarter.
BThank you. I am very happy to have this opportunity to learn something new. You know information and knowledge in this field update very fast.
ASure it is. This is a changing world. Does the training course cover the new law and regulation issued last month? They are very useful for us.
BYes, according to the agenda, there will be a seminar on these issues at the very beginning of the training course.
AWell, good for you. I hope you can get what you want from the training.
BI will do my best.
AHi, Francis, how was your business trip?
BIt was a nightmare.
BActually, the business trip itself was very successful. We arrived on time, we had nice conversations and we settled some important issues for the next year.
ASounds quite fruitful, why do you call it still a nightmare then?
BWell, the air line lost my luggage on the return flight and then I lost my carry on bag when I was tackling with the officers in charge. I left the airport three hours later than I expected and then I was caught in a traffic jam. When I finally got home, I was totally exhausted. But I found the elevator was out of service due to a blackout.
AThis is really a sad story. Did they trace back your luggage?
BI am still waiting for their call.
ATake it easy, all sufferings have their reward.
AA friend of mine has been taking an online career planning course these days. He told me the other day he has learned a lot from it. He recommended me to subscribe to it. What do you say?
BI think it is good if we know enough about career planning. We will make wiser choices. What else did he tell you about it?
AWell, just something in general, like several key steps in planning career and how to set specific and tenable goals.
BSounds practical! To be honest, sometimes I feel puzzled about my future career. I am not sure if this job suits me the best though I work very hard on it and enjoy being a hard worker. I have always wanted to try something else and learn some new skills.
AMaking a decision to start over is not an easy thing to do. It seems that you need this course more than I do. I love my current job. If I take this course, I hope to learn some tricks to get myself more organized at work. If they can give suggestions about how to boost work relationships, that will be great. I need these to improve my current work performance.
BOk, then we can sign up for it together.
