Reading and Language Market Leader Advanced – Unit 1: First Impressions – Tiếng anh thương mại – HocHay

"

A. Read the article on the opposite page and compare the writer's views on networking with your own. What points does he make?

 

Đáp án:

1. The writer appears to agree with this statement. He argues shy people just need to invite people they like to dinner and later suggest that the best-connected people concentrate their efforts on people they like.

2. The writer disagrees. Building personal networks and finding contacts is useful for recent graduates. However, most people already have lots of contacts. The dilemma is how to make the most of our existing network.

3. The writer's view is that the best-connected people don't appear to be manipulative, because they concentrate their efforts on people they like and don't have any specific business goals in mind when they network.
