  • And welcome back to top words.

  • My name is Alicia, and today we're gonna talk about 10 employment related words.

  • So let's go to apply for a job.

  • The first expression is to apply for a job.

  • When you apply for a job, you do a job application, a job application form, where you have to write your personal information.

  • And then you often have to submit some other materials, your CV or your resume, Um, and then maybe maybe a photograph to something like that.

  • So toe apply for a job is to essentially notify the owner or the manager at the company that you are interested in, that you would like to work there.

  • That is, to apply for a job.

  • So in a sentence, I applied for a job at Apple to interview for tow, have an interview.

  • The next expression is to interview for something, or to have an interview.

  • So after you apply for a job, if you pass the application stage, you may be asked to have an interview.

  • So to have an interview is the stage where you meet your prospectively, make maybe meet your potential future employer or manager or co workers, and you have a discussion.

  • They interview you.

  • They talk to you about your skills, your goals, who you are as a person, an interview to have an interview.

  • Or we can say to interview for a position.

  • So, for example, I'm going to interview for a sales position.

  • I'm going to interview for a teacher position.

  • I'm going to interview for a Big King cake baking position.

  • You never know.

  • You never know.

  • Cakes need to be baked.

  • Ah, anyway, so if you decide you're going to apply to be a cake Baker, you say, I'm going.

  • I have an interview for a cake Baker position.

  • In this sentence, I got an interview for a new job to get an offer.

  • The next expression is to get an offer to get an offer.

  • So after the application and perhaps after the interview, if the employer manager, whoever they like you, the next phase is usually an offer and offer a job offer.

  • So we would say, Ah, I got an offer for a job.

  • I got an offer from Apple.

  • I got an offer for a management position so we can use offer for a job to be very general on offer for a specific position.

  • I got an offer for a donut taste tester position.

  • Or we can say I got a job offer from a company.

  • I got a job offer from Kleenex.

  • Okay, There are three different ways that we can use this expression.

  • Another sentence.

  • I got a really great job offer to accept an offer.

  • Ah, the next expression is to accept an offer.

  • So when the offer comes, you can choose to accept or decline the offer except means yes, decline means no.

  • So to accept an offer means to say yes to agree to work for that position.

  • Sorry to agree to work in that position, to agree to work for the company, to agree to do that job which you applied for to accept an offer in the sentence.

  • Are you going to accept the offer from that company to start working?

  • The next expression is to start working, so to start working at a new job, we can use this Ah, to talk about the job, your responsibility specifically or the company.

  • So I'm going to start working at Apple next week or I'm going to start working at my new job next week or I'm going to start working as a sales management professional next week, for example, so to start working is is an expression that's used for a new job.

  • Sometimes people will say like about their regular schedules, like I start working every day at eight o'clock.

  • It's okay, you can use that as well.

  • I would say I start work every day at eight o'clock.

  • I start my job every day at eight o'clock.

  • Um, but when you join a new company, you can also say I start working for my new company on Monday, for example, to get a promotion.

  • The next expression is to get a promotion to get a promotion.

  • A promotion means essentially like to level up at work, to go to the next level in terms of money, in terms of responsibility.

  • In terms of prestige, prestige means like, kind of like the respect or the, um, wth e Yeah, like the respect of a position.

  • So to get a promotion is usually seen as a positive thing.

  • So if you do a good job in your position, you may get a promotion in this sentence.

  • Do you think you'll get a promotion next year to get a raise?

  • The next expression is to get a raise.

  • To get a raise is specifically a man increase in your pay, an increase in your pay, which may or may not be accompanied by be together with a promotion.

  • So maybe you get a promotion and a raise at the same time.

  • That could be or maybe you have the same job description, but you get a raise.

  • Eso it's kind of it's like a type of promotion.

  • Really.

  • Getting getting a raise is like a type of promotion, sort of like a monetary promotion.

  • I guess now that I think about it, though, promotion feels really kind of more about the job title, the job or responsibility level.

  • Ah, and then that may or may not have a raise attached.

  • Do it.

  • So to get a raise means to get more money to have a higher salary, higher hourly wage to get a raise.

  • I have heard some people say get a rise in pay as well.

  • But that might be more common in British English.

  • Americans say Get a raise in a sentence.

  • I hope I get a raise this year to demote.

  • The next expression is to demote demote.

  • So I talked about the word to promote or to get a promotion, meaning to go up a level, to increase your responsibilities at your job.

  • But if you have bad performance, or if there is a problem at your job or something goes awry, something goes bad.

  • There's a there's an issue or you have to take responsibility for a company problem.

  • Whatever.

  • You have to go down a level, we say that that's being demoted.

  • That would be to demote someone.

  • So we have promote to go up and demote movie, meaning to go down, promote demote, promote amount in a sentence.

  • I heard the manager in the next department was demoted to quit.

  • The next expression is to quit to quit, so to quit.

  • Be careful of your pronunciation.

  • I hear sometimes my students say to quite my job.

  • That's a funny 12 quite it is not too quite.

  • It is to quit to quit.

  • There's that tall ice and quit.

  • Um, sounds like bit or kit or mint or it.

  • So to quit a job to quit a job means to stop working somewhere to finish your response.

  • Well, maybe not.

  • Finish your responsibility.

  • It means to stop working a specific position.

  • It means to stop working at a specific company.

  • Of course, you can say to quit a job.

  • You can also quit other things in your life, for example, like to quit a task on a computer or to quit dating someone?

  • People could say that to quit staying up late at night.

  • You can use that for any number of actions, any action that you want to stop doing we can use to quit.

  • But when you, ah, want to stop working at a company, the vocabulary word we use is to quit in this sentence.

  • I think I need to quit my job to be fired.

  • Oh, the next expression is to be fired to be fired, so the previous word to quit is your own choice.

  • You choose to quit a job to quit something.

  • However, if there's a big problem, that is your responsibility.

  • Or maybe there's some circumstance.

  • Something happens.

  • I don't know what, but it is not your choice to leave your job, but your employer's choice or your manager's choice.

  • They decide you cannot continue working here.

  • This is the expression to be fired.
