1. Do you think it would be better to live in a small city or a large city?
As for me, I prefer to live in a small city, because there is slow-paced life and better environment. I was born in a small city, where I don't need to suffer traffic jam and huge living pressure, but now I work in Beijing, where I have to waste much time in commuting What's even worse is the harmful fog and haze If I have the chance, I will move back to my hometown.

2. Do you come from a large family or a small family?
I grow up in a small family of three. So there is no doubt that my parents devote all their love to me, and to some extent they even spollme. Like many only children in China, I don't have the virtue of sharing When I get married, for the good of my offspring I want to raise two children to build up a large family
virtue of sharing 分享的美德
3. What is your major?
I major in English. My reasons for choosing English as my major are multidimensional First, English is an international language. Learning it, I can broaden my horizon through communication with people from different countries. In addition, a good command of English will certainly sharpen my competitive edgein job hunting. Moreover, I love English because English culture is as fascinating as Chinese culture.
broaden one's horizon 扩大视野
sharpen one's competitive edge 增强某人的竞争力 fascinating adj.有极大吸引力的
4. What do you most like about your job? Why
What attracts me most in my current job is the flexible time I'm a programmer, and my boss believes that I don't need to obey the traditional work arrangements to work a standard
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. day, as long as I can finish my task. In this way I can avoid the rush hour and have more time to look after my child.

1. Are opportunities for promotion important for you?
Well, in fact, the opportunities for career promotion are important for everyone. No one would prefer to stay in one position for the whole life. Certainly I'm no exception. But whatapos;s equally important to me is the kind of job satisfaction I can derive from my work. One might say that career promotion does contribute a lot to one's job satisfaction, but as I see it, there are many other things that also contribute a lot to one's job satisfaction, for example, harmonious inter-personal relationship, recognition from co-workers or line managers, and so on.
2. What is more important to you: social status or money?
Well, you've indeed asked a difficult question. If I have the freedom to choose, I'd choose none of them as anything most important to me. In fact, as I see it, neither social status nor money should become a person's life goal. As Maslow's hierarchy of needs indicates,money and social status cater to the lower level of human needs, while self-fulfillment needs constitute the highest level of human needs.
cater to 迎合，为……服务

3. What makes a good team?
Well, I think on a good team the members should work towards a common objective. They discuss roles and allocate them to team members, and they cooperate fully with each other.
What's more, the members trust each other and share information effectively within the team.They listen to different points of view and talk openly and honestly within the team. When some of them are under pressure , others offer help .
4. What are the factors to consider when choosing a city to live in?
In my opinion, when choosing a city to live in, a number of factors will have to be considered,for example, weather, living environment, housing price, job opportunities, and so on. As a college graduate, I think the most important factors to consider are the job opportunities and the favorable policies of the local government concerning the placement of graduates.
adj.有利的，优惠的 placement of graduates毕业生安置
5. Do you think that company staff should wear uniforms?
As the English saying goes, "every coin has two sides". There are certainly several merits to wearing staff uniforms, for example, it can project a positive corporate image,foster team spirit among staff, and create self-confidence among staff members. But on the other hand, staff uniforms lack individuality, and whatapos;s worse, might stifle innovation and creativity. So as I see it, whether company staff should wear uniforms depends on what type of business the company is engaged in. If innovation and creativity is vital for the company's development, the staff members should not wear uniforms. Otherwise, it might be desirable for staff to wear uniforms.
