Learn English – Asking About Occupations, What is your Job?


Welcome to EnglishClass101.com’s “English
in Three Minutes”. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn English. Hey everyone, I’m Alisha! In this series, we’re going to learn some
easy ways to ask and answer common questions in English. It’s really useful, and it only
takes three minutes! In this lesson, you’re going to learn how
to ask what someone’s job is in natural English. Of course, you *can* just say, “What is
your job?” This is correct English, but it sounds too direct and awkward. Native English
speakers almost never say this in a social situation. Instead, they use a different question. But before we master that, we need to compare
it to a very similar question. “What are you doing?” “I’m presenting a video about English!” “What do you do?” “I’m an English teacher!” Do you see the difference? These two questions – “What are you doing?”
and “What do you do?” sound similar, but mean different things. The first one is asking what you are doing
right now, this minute. You answer it using an -ing verb. “What are you doing?” “I’m reading!” “I’m watching TV!” … While the second is actually a shortened
version of “What do you do for a living?”. This is how we ask “What is your job?”
in natural English. Let’s practice this question. “What do you do?” “What do you do?” When native speakers of English ask this question,
it can come out very fast, and sound more like “Whadd’yado?” In order to tell it apart from “what are
you doing?”, just listen for the “ing” sound on the end of the question – if it’s
not there, then you’re being asked what your job is! So how would you answer this question? Just think of it as if the other person is
asking you “What is your job?” You could answer with “I am”, plus your job. “I’m a teacher.” I’m a teacher or, “I’m an engineer.” If you want to learn more job names, go to
EnglishClass101.com and check out the Core Word Lists. These cover job vocabulary and
more, and include a picture and audio to help you perfect your pronunciation. You can also mention the place that you work
at, starting with “I work at”. I work at a hospital. I work at a hospital. I work at a law firm. I work at a law firm. If you work for a big company that is well-known,
you can say “I work for”, and then the name: “I work for Microsoft.” I work for Microsoft. I work for The New York Times. I work for The New York Times. Now it’s time for Alisha’s Advice! When you ask the question “What do you do?”
and the other person tells you their job, it’s polite to make some kind of positive
comment about his or her job – for example, “How interesting!” or “That must be
exciting” or even “Oh, really!”. Remember to sound sincere! Do you know how native English speakers ask
each other what their hobbies are? Hint: we don’t use the word “hobbies”!

Employment Law Jobs – Being A Lawyer Representing Employers


Luber: Today on JD Careers Out There we�re
exploring careers in employment law so stick around. [theme song] Hey everyone, I�m Marc
Luber and today�s guest is Mike Maslanka. He�s an employment lawyer practicing in
Dallas, Texas where he�s a partner with Constangy Brooks and Smith representing employers.
Mike�s been listed as one of the top hundred lawyers in Texas Monthly and Texas Super Lawyers
as well as one of the best lawyers in Dallas for 10 years in a row by D Magazine and he�s
an author of several books and he�s got an award winning blog called Work Matters.
As you might already know, at JDCOT we help you find and succeed in fulfilling careers
using a law degree and exploring career paths both in and out of law to help you figure
out what fits you is a big part of that. Today, Mike�s going to let us know all about being
an employment lawyer – so let�s meet Mike. Mike, welcome to JDCOT! Mike: Great to be here, Marc, thanks very
much. Luber: Definitely, thank you for being here.
So Mike, I�m going to ask you to tell us all about a typical day and who fits this
path best, what type of personality and skill sets and then we�re going to talk about
how to break in and how to succeed. But first let�s start with the basics, tell us about
your practice and what you do as an employment lawyer. Mike: Well I�m an employment lawyer and
I represent companies, just exclusively employers. Sometimes large, mid size companies, small
companies. And the transcendent message I want get across to those who are interested
in this is that we really help them manage their workforces – because if you�re not
managing the workforce, the workforce is managing you. And there are a lot of different ways
to do that. You have to make sure the client understands the law, you have to make sure
the client understands the nature of their workforce and the one thing that really is
absolutely crucial to bring to bear, and I say this as an employment lawyer representing
companies, is to make sure that you have a sense of fairness. It�s very important for
employment lawyers to have that and to train their clients, to bring them to their own
wisdom so that when they make decisions about employees, it�s based on facts and it�s
based on numbers, but at the end of the day it�s really based on what is fair; what
is fair to the company but also what is fair to the employee. That may surprise some people,
but employment lawyers who represent companies do in fact have a heart – and employers, HR
people, do in fact have a heart too. So in a sense, that�s what I do: manage the workforce,
don�t let them mange you. Companies that are smart understand that good employees are
productive employees. And having a good, productive employee – it�s just like money in the bank
– and they need to treat it that way. And one of my jobs is if they don�t have that
sense already, to try to help impart that sensibility to them. Luber: What are some of the types of fact
patterns that you might deal with, that you might see on a daily basis so that someone
can get an idea of, �ok, that�s the kind of thing I�m dealing with when I�m an
employment lawyer�. Mike: Sure, let me give you two or three examples.
One example, I represent a national restaurant chain. And one of the issues that has come
up is a Seventh Day Adventist. He converted to that religion, he was an incumbent manager,
is they have certain religious requirements with respect to working on weekends. Well
how do you accommodate that? Does the law require an accommodation? How do you deal
with the employee in arriving at an accommodation? Religious discrimination, very interesting
stuff. Then you get the harassment lawsuits, the sexual harassment lawsuits. It�s a question
sometimes of�sometimes it�s a question of misunderstanding. Sometimes it�s a question
of someone saying, �Well I really didn�t mean to offend someone,� and so you deal
with those issues in terms of consulting with your clients. And then of course sometimes
there are lawsuits – and I will in fact represent companies, not just in litigation, but I also
try lawsuits. I�ve tried maybe 50 or 60 cases to verdict. Luber: Alright, if you�re on YouTube, please
give us the thumbs up if this was helpful! And to see the full interview with Mike, come

If People Were Honest At The Office


– Denise.
– David. – I’ve already forgotten your name. – Me too. (both laugh) (light guitar music) – Uhh, no I didn’t finish that report, but I did get 160 pages deep on Reddit. – I know I’m smarter than
you, but I’m an intern so I’m going to pretend like I’m not. – This is how my boss spoke to me so that’s how I’m gonna speak to you. – Hey guys, I’m not paying attention to this conference call,
but I’m interjecting so that you know that I’m here. – Oh, Dave, I got your
email but I didn’t respond because I think you’re incredibly stupid. – If this goes right I’m
taking all the credit. If it goes wrong, you’re
getting all the blame. – Oh, I was just on Facebook. Oh I was just on Etsy. Oh, I was just looking at the closest thing I can get to porn. – I’m gonna see you
more than my girlfriend, so I’m probably gonna
develop a crush on you. – Can you tell I had two beers with lunch? – Uh, that’s great. Can
you set up a meeting so you can repeat what you just told me? – Hey, everyone hates the
quote in your email signature. – You should see this conversation we’re having about you on GChat. – The way you’re looking at me today means I’m never gonna
wear this skirt again. – I really don’t care
how your weekend was. – This is my roommate Henry. I just wanted to bring him in, show how grown-up my job is. – I’ll say thank you, but I don’t mean it. – You’re my least favorite person here. – I am this close (laughs) I am (everyone in room laughs) – Can you go (laughs) God damn it! – I am this close to getting
a back rub from my secretary. Do not screw it up for me. (laughs) All right, we’re good. Let’s go.

Employment Specialist Perspective


My name is Jaclyn and I have worked as an
employment specialist for several years now, and
currently work in a similar role for VCU’s Center on Transition Innovations. As an employment
specialist, I am one of the supports that works with the students as they’re transitioning
out of high school or have transitioned out of high
school to help find employment. In the work I do Employment First is such
a needed initiative here in Virginia because we’re
starting to get away from that idea or philosophy that individuals with disabilities are
unemployable. As an employment specialist, I never have
really had that mentality that somebody’s unemployable or not able to work
due to their disability. I know and I have seen in
the work that I’ve done that if an individual has a desire to work they’re able to work
with the right work environment and the right supports. Unfortunately, sometimes we work with either schools or agencies that may not have that
same philosophy. I know that I have worked with
one individual when I first began as an employment specialist, I was reading through his
paperwork and I kept seeing unemployable or not able to work and they listed his deficits
whether it was he had limited verbal communication, very rigid in his routine, so much so that
if there was any type of change that he would
become aggressive or bolt away from the people that he was working with. So, we have all these kind of perceived reasons
why somebody may not be able to work. So when I started to work with him and I was
working with DARS, we kind of shifted that and started looking at his
strengths. We started thinking about what could he
contribute to a work site, what are his conditions for success, what are those strengths, what
are those reinforces, those motivators that will
make him successful at work. And once we kind of
discovered all of that, we were able to find kind of that right fit, that right work environment
where he could use his interest, his skills, his talents, and be successful at work and
we were able to find that, and now he’s been working
successfully for three years now in one business. So, Employment First is really an exciting
and needed initiative in Virginia because it is beginning to reshape that philosophy
on who can work and also who should be prepared for work in school. Employment First states that, employment should
be that first and preferred option for everyone who has the
desire to work. I am seeing less and less of that
statement of someone being unemployable. When they get to me as an employment specialist,
agencies that support students are really starting to look through a different lens
and changing their philosophy. And we really need to now kind of look at that school level and how as educators we can change that philosophy In my experience, individuals who have been exposed to that career development while they’re in school, and they have developed
those career interests and know where those fit
within the job market, and they have been able to practice those workplace skills in
real work environments are finding jobs faster and they
are more successful and so they’re maintaining those jobs longer than students that didn’t
have those opportunities in school. So as an employment specialist, I get those
students who are about to transition or who have
transitioned out of high school and some are prepared and some aren’t prepared. So as a
school or as educators, there may be some things that you can do to help a student be
better prepared for the workforce once leaving. My number one advice to start off with, is
to really believe in your students that they can be
employed. So don’t kind of pass judgement, don’t
make that decision for them that whether or not they’re employable. So really believing that an
individual is able to work and helping them find just what those conditions are and what
those supports are I think is kind of my number
one thing I would tell a school. Next, I would suggest
to start that career development early on. Elementary school, start exposing these students
with disabilities to employment and all different
types of careers. All too often I get these individuals
and they have kind of three areas of employment and that’s food service, stocking, and janitorial
work. Which those three areas of employment are
important and it’s good work and if that’s what an individual wants to do then great
but too often that’s the only thing that they think they
can do. So, you know as an educator really start exposing
them to all different types of careers so that an individual or student can make
a real informed choice on what type of work that they
want when they graduate, what they want their life look like after graduation. Another way to help students with disabilities
be prepared for the workforce is to get them out in
the community or help their families figure out how that they can get them active in the
community. If you’re an educator that might look like
job shadowing, internships, paid work experiences. For families, maybe you could help them suggest
working around their faith-based community, volunteering at their local library. Also, try to be intentional about those skills
that are taught in the classroom and transferred
into the community. If individuals can come into the
workforce knowing how to ask for help for example, or how to use basic technology. Have those self-determination skills, they
already have a leg up and they increase their likelihood for successful employment. Lastly, get your students and their families
connected to those agencies that are going to transition
with the individual after graduation. So, for example,
the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services or what we call DARS. It’s so important to
get those connections and get those connections as early as possible. An individual with a
disability can be referred to DARS at the age of fourteen. So they can come to IEP meetings,
they can give resources, and so this is not something you don’t have to do alone. Employment first is
this philosophy, this change in initiative in Virginia where we’re now really looking
at all students with disabilities and without disabilities
can work but we also know that it’s a team approach. It’s
the schools, it’s the family, it’s the community agencies and partnerships that when they’re
brought to the table, how this initiative employment first is really going work and
really going be successful for these folks with disabilities.

NDIS Stories – Kaitlyn’s school to employment story (SLES)


My name is Kaitlyn Wilson. I’m 20 years
old. I work at South Hobart Primary School. I was a former student here. It feels really
good working here, getting to know new people, getting to know new kids and just enjoying
the environment. I help set up activities, I help play with
the kids. I organise games like fruit salad and chasings and a range of activities. So SLES is an acronym for School Leaver Employment
Support. It’s a great school to work transition, and we work with individuals through the NDIS
to facilitate them getting into work placements and getting the skills needed to gain
paid work. When I get my pay cheque, I feel good, happy
and excited. Just buy new clothes. Buy a car. eventually. Buy a house. Kaitlyn has progressed so much since she’s
been in the SLES program. She’s gained so many skills, she’s gained friends, she’s
gained contacts in the community that she never had the opportunity to have before.
And we’ve just seen someone come from one place to somewhere that’s so positive now
and she has so many opportunities that she didn’t have before, and it’s just amazing
to see someone grow like that.

Navigating the maze: Education to Employment | Hugo Driver | TEDxBaDinh


Translator: Gia Bảo Nguyễn Hữu
Reviewer: Nguyen Trang You could show me your hand
if you have ever been in a maze. Wow! So most people,
maybe seventy percent of you have been in a maze. Well, look at the green dot at the corner. Imagine you’re there. And you’re in some kind
of education program or system. You may be at your university. Maybe your training. Maybe you’ve got an internship. But your vision, really,
is to get to the red dot. What is that red dot? Well that red dot
is a career of your choice in a sector that you enjoy
and you’re interested in. And I think above all,
a job that is meaningful or a business that you start
that is meaningful to you. I think if we think about
some of the really successful people who’ve gone from university
or education over to employment actually not many of them
started thinking, “I just want to be rich” Some of them did but it was usually those people
that didn’t make it. Usually the people with the real passion like Microsoft and Google,
starting in garages. Yeah? Think about that.
And I want you just to think about your journey from education
through to employment. Now there’s one thing
that we definitely know about employment in the 21st century. It’s unstable. It moves. Companies go to different countries
to outsource their goods and services. And that means that you have to be
very dynamic. And you have to really think
about your journey through that maze. Can you remember
being maybe 4 or 5 years old and your teacher or your mom and dad said, “So, what do you want to be?” Now put your hand up again
if you ever said “I want to be an astronaut.” Oh! Wow! We’ve got at least 15 astronauts
in the room. My next question is
are any of you astronauts? (Laughter) No. I’m sorry. Well, that’s kind of a dream
that we have as a child. Wonderful song from a UK singer. And there’s a line in it, and it goes, “While we’re living, the dreams we have as children fade away.” Now I know we all experience that
to some extent. Things don’t always work out
the way we want them to. But I think a way to view this
is we’re trying to go from education into employment, we have to realize our own limitations. I just want to tell you about my brother. Well, he’s 2 meters
and 10 centimeters tall. And he’s my younger brother. Which is a bit embarrassing for me, because I’m not as tall as him. Because he’s so tall,
he’s found it very difficult to do something that’s very simple
in my country, and that’s learn to drive. Beause all the cars are too small for him. And he’s having to learn
to drive in a truck. Now he can’t change his height,
he can’t cut his legs off or become shorter,
so he has to accept that limitation. But there are advantages to that, too. He gets a huge amount of respect,
especially in Vietnam for being so tall. Think about yourself
in your education setting. There are some things
you are simply not very good at, and you have to work really hard
to do, to be better at. There are actually very few
that you can’t make better, and I think that’s proven by people who do remarkable things
with remarkable constraints. How many of you remember the guy that visited Vietnam last year? Nick Vujicic, I hope I say his name right. And, this man has no arms and legs, yet has achieved incredible things. But even he, I’m sure, would say that there are some things
that he couldn’t do, or that he’s not good at. But he can do remarkable things
despite his limitations. So I’m asking you, if you are over there, you’re in education at the moment, and you want to be in the circle,
which is where employment is and jobs are maybe jobs you create,
maybe jobs you do for other people. Don’t lose your dream, but maybe accept that you might not
become an astronaut. It seems to me – somebody here still wants to be. (Laughter) Keep going. It might happen. So I’m trying to suggest,
mold your dreams, and let them be flexible, and work to your strengths,
give yourself room to grow. Because what’s happening now is Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City
in Vietnam [are] part of a global market. Just in the last few months
I’ve met people from companies from Denmark,
Spain, Sweden, Norway, Brazil. All over the country, all over the world, people are actually coming here. And they’re coming here
because of the diversity, the good standard level of education
and the talent. Because it exists here in Ha Noi, and those companies are coming in, and also Vietnamese companies
are innovating. The small private companies
are innovating. So the journey from education through that maze
we saw at the beginning, is quite interesting and quite difficult. Let’s look at the handshake. How many of you have shaken a hand today? Give me your hand up if you have shaken
somebody’s hand this morning. Now that’s interesting. Well, I’m English, and we don’t really feel very comfortable, unless we know somebody,
having a hug. Unless we really want to hug them,
in case we might like it. So, fortunately, we like to shake hands. And that’s a formal way of introducing. But in Vietnam,
with my Vietnamese friends, I’ve noticed that there isn’t
so much of formality with the introduction. I was speaking to one
of the other speakers earlier, and I was saying, “How do we actually
greet each other in Vietnam?” And I worked out
that often that we nod. “Chào anh.” “Chào.”
“Xin chào.” “Chào” And we sort of keep a distance. So I understand that reserve,
because the British are like that, and so are the Vietnamese,
it’s a shared habit. Americans, on the other hand,
any Americans here? Lovely people. “Hey, how are you? Good to meet you!” They find meeting people so easy,
don’t they? Well, a skill to be so naturally friendly. Well, put yourself in one situation now. I’m going to imagine
that you are all people who want to make that journey
from university or training into a job. Now, imagine you’re in that situation. And you’re at home, on your iPad
or on your laptop, typing away. And you spot an opportunity. You’re a marketing student,
and you think, right, I’ve got to get a job in marketing. I’ve got to do it, my parents
are breathing down my neck. They spent all this money on my education, I’ve been studying English for years,
I’ve just got to do it. You’re not really sure how to get there. Well I’m going to give you 3
very simple tips that I think can help. And I think they can help in context
of Hà Nội, and context of Vietnam. There you are, on your computer. You find a conference. It’s on, for example, Giảng Võ Street. You know, the conference center. And it’s a marketing trade fair,
all marketers are going to be there. All the big companies
are going to be there trying to get business
from other people, from each other. And you sat in your pajamas,
drinking tea or coffee, on your laptop. And you think, “Yeah, I want to work
for one of those companies.” Well I think the first thing
that perhaps needs to happen is for you to move
into your area of discomfort. Haven’t we just heard about that? Getting uncomfortable. Now one of the hardest things to do,
and this is step 1, is to go to an event where we don’t know anybody, where we know we’ve got less experience than everyone else there, and where we’re not really sure
what would happen. Well my recommendation,
and this has worked for me, and it’s worked for people I know,
and I think it’s helpful. Go to that event on Giảng Võ Street. Turn up and do two things. Talk to strangers. Meet them, and find out why they’re there. Don’t go and ask for a job. Don’t go and say,
“I’m looking for a job in this area” Go and speak to people. Go and ask them, “Is the trade conference useful for you? Did you find any new marketing partners? Was it helpful meeting people?” Because what we see at the moment
is new companies coming in as I’ve mentioned, to Vietnam,
and new opportunities for talented young people like yourselves. But you have to make them aware of you without just simply asking for work
or sending a CV. So go and speak and talk
and ask questions. Maybe you want a business card,
and you see someone, you think, “Oh, I recognize that person.” They’re over there,
they look very important. You know, VIPs have a VIP look,
don’t they? And you think, oh,
how am I going to approach them? And you know you need
to get their information. But you don’t want to go over like this. You know… You want to go over
and you want to get something from them. So try this: don’t go and ask
for their business card. Maybe you can ask them,
“Oh, it was really interesting, the event today. How can I find out
more about your project? Is there any way I can have a tour
or find out more about your company and see if we work out
more about what you do?” Go in from a different angle,
go in from an educational perspective. Because the relationship between
the employer and the employee is also changing. You are not just staff, as many as
my Vietnamese friends “my staffs”. You’re not just staff, you are part and can be part
of these new companies, and innovative Vietnamese companies
that are changing the way they work. Because I think Vietnam has definitely
got the potential to rival and to – what we see is happening in
Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. There’s the passion here, definitely. Now you’ve got the business card. And you’re feeling
really really pleased with yourself, because you’ve managed to speak
to the VIP. Well, what a lot of people
do in this situation is after the event, they go and have some coffee
with their friends and they say, “Oh, it was great. I learned so much.
I met all these important people.” And then they go back to school
or their internship or their work and they don’t follow it up. There’s your opportunity to make
a connection with somebody in your sector. And that’s something you can do so that you can move
from the education area. You can move from being
an inexperienced trainee or intern while making connections with people that you previously felt
were inaccessible. It is a maze, it is definitely a maze. I probably speak to, maybe 50 or 60 people between
the age of 16 and 35 each week, sometimes more sometimes less. And in my capacity, as somebody, who has to try and give them something
to take away that’s useful. The first thing I ask them is,
“So what are you studying?” “Finance”, first answer.
The next student comes in. “So what are you studying Minh?”
“Oh teacher, I’m studying Economics” Oh, finance, economics. Next student comes in.
“Chao anh. Hello, nice to meet you”. “Hello. What are you studying now?”
“Oh, Economics.” Oh, I heard that one before. Next day a few more come in. “Oh, it’s Phuong Anh. Hello, Phuong Anh.
Nice to meet you Phuong Anh. What are you studying now Phuong Anh?” “Finance.” Oh, what a surprise. Well, it is a surprise to me
and something I was so shocked by. After being here, about 3 years, I realized that probably 80%
of the young people I meet are studying 3 subjects. Right now let’s try it. Put your hand up
if you studied Finance, or Economics. And put your hand up proudly. I would say, “Ối giời ơi” at this moment. (Laughter) I think I’ve proved my point somewhat. Remember that with all these
new companies coming into Vietnam, and with all these interesting projects
going on – NGOs, private companies,
global mutinationals, small start-ups, tech start-ups – you are in an opportunity
to connect with all kinds of sectors. OK. And when you’re thinking about
your journey from education through to employment, even if you are stuck
with an Economics degree. I wish I was stuck
with an Economics degree. I’m not. Even if you’re stuck with it,
you can always change direction. So remember these things
about your market. Remember it’s unstable,
it’s changing and the work will change. Perhaps just have in mind
previous generation’s working habit. My father’s generation,
and I think it’s the same for a lot of people in Vietnam. Did your parents work for one company
most of their lives? Yeah? Did they perhaps have mainly
only 3 different jobs during that time? A junior job, a middling job. And then maybe when they retired,
the top job. Yeah. That’s changing.
And that’s changing globally. And you’re now part of a mobile,
talented, intelligent workforce that spans the whole world. And don’t be shy to use
a handshake like that with a stranger. I wish you a lot of luck and good fortune navigating the maze and try to network in a way that takes you
to new opportunities that you previously didn’t think existed. Thank you for listening. (Applause)

completing it. Guys, watch out for scams. Some backpackers
have been targetted on certain websites, so we advise everybody to be wary of paying any
sort of money to secure their regional work or any sort of deposit on accommodation before
arriving at your regional work. A lot of you are probably also wondering where
you’re supposed to find regional work. Although there are a variety of different websites,
there is a government funded website called Harvest Trail, and that will give you a list
of all the available positions around Australia for Regional work. Once you’ve found your
regional work, you’ll need to keep track of it on a working holiday verification form.
This can be found on the department of immigration and border protection website. This form
also includes really important information that you need to know before completing your
regional work -such as recognised post codes as well as industries. You can find a link
to this form below. Make sure to get a tax file number, and also make sure that your
employer fills out an employer verification form. This not only states that you’ve worked
for them, but also that you’ve completed your regional work. Make sure that you’re being
proper;y compensated for your work. Do some research into the wages offered in the industry
that you’ve chosen and make sure that your wage is being fairly paid. Be safe! If you
think that there is anything dangerous or unsafe about the work that you’re being asked
to do, remember that it’s your right to refuse! Thank you for joining me. Now remember that
regional work can be a really great experience, and the sooner you start, the sooner you finish.
