Clever birds

The wild birds known as ravens are thought to be very clever. In fact, they can solve some quite problems, especially when they're trying to get food. For example, one bird was filmed taking a box of nuts from a bird table and dropping it onto the ground it would break and the bird could eat the nuts inside!

Scientists also that the birds could actually use stones as tools to out simple tasks. So in an experiment, they taught five birds to use a tool to open a box with food inside. The birds soon became very experienced at doing this. So for the next experiment, the birds were given a small of tools to choose from. They always picked the tool scientists had given them for the first task. And hours later, they could still remember which tool they'd used!

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

A letter of application is a sales letter in which you are both salesperson and product, for the purpose of an application is to attract an employer's attention and persuade him or her to grant you an interview. To do this, the letter presents what you can offer the employer, rather than what you want from the job. 

Like a résumé, the letter of application is a sample of your work and an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and personality. If it is written with flair and understanding and prepared with professional care, it is likely to be very effective. While the résumé must be factual, objective, and brief, the letter is your chance to interpret and expand. It should state explicitly how your background relates to the specific job, and it should emphasize your strongest and most relevant characteristics. The letter should demonstrate that you know both yourself and the company.

The letter of application must communicate your ambition and enthusiasm. Yet it must be modest. It should be neither aggressive nor compliant: neither pat yourself on the back nor ask for sympathy. It should never express dissatisfaction with the present or former job or employer. And you should avoid discussing your reasons for leaving your last job.

Finally, it is best that you not broach the subject on salary. Indeed, even if a job advertisement requires that you mention your salary requirements, it is advisable simply to call them "negotiable." However, when you go on an interview, you should be prepared to mention a salary range. For this reason, you should investigate both your field and, if possible, the particular company. You don't want to ask for less than you deserve or more than is reasonable.

In a letter of application, you need to try to persuade the employer to offer you an interview.

You should only focus on your strength in your letter of application.

The letter of application should refer to the applicant's reasons for quitting their previous job.

You shouldn't mention the salary of the position in the letter of application.

According to paragraph 4, in a job interview, the applicant should be ready to ____.

  • accept any salary offered
  • negotiate working conditions
  • mention their expected salary range
  • talk about the company's budget

What is the passage mainly about?

  • Advice on how to find a good job
  • Things to avoid during a job interview
  • Tips for writing an effective letter of application
  • Differences between a résumé and a letter of application
