JOBS

DESCRIBING A JOB: Have you ever heard of any odd jobs? Do you think you can make good money with a weird job?

APPLYING FOR A JOB: Before applying for a job, you need to know what IT’S GOING TO BE ABOUT.

WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW beforehand?

Have you ever wondered what a US President has to study?

What would their CV be like?

If they applied for the job, what would be the profile?

BEING REJECTED: Do you think it was easy for Madonna to become a star?

When the Queen of Pop finally signed with Sire Records in 1982, her debut album sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. She used this early rejection as motivation, as this respected producer didn’t believe she was “ready yet.” She’s now the best selling female artist of all time.

WHERE TO PUT THE PREPOSTITION IN A RELATIVE CLAUSE

There are often prepositions in relative clauses, and the relative pronoun is the object of the preposition. This means that the preposition can sometimes be omitted.

The preposition is normally placed at the end of the relative clause:

  • Is that the man (who) you arrived with?
  • Do you know the girl (that) John is talking to?

In formal or written English, the preposition is often placed before the relative pronoun, and in this case the pronoun cannot be omitted:

  • The person with whom he is negotiating is the Chairman of a large company.
  • It is a society to which many important people belong.

However, this is unusual in spoken English.

Examples

  • The jungle the tribe lived in was full of strange and unusual animals.
  • He liked the people that he lived with.
  • The tree under which they had their picnic was the largest and oldest in the park.
  • To the east of the city was a lake that many people went to on the weekend.
  • It was the river in which the children preferred to swim.
