SUSAN: Okay, well, tell me about yourself.
MARY: Well, I love to learn new things. I'm very organized, and I follow directions exactly. Uh, that's

improve my writing skills.

questions?
MARY: No, I don't think so, but I've heard a lot of good things about your company, and I would
really like to work here.

job.
