W:Hey,James,how is the job search going?
M:Hi,Sharon,I had no idea.It’ll take so much time.It sure makes it difficult to prepare for final exams.How about you?
W:I was lucky.There seems to be a shortage of highschool teachers now.I applied to three schools and each one offered me a position.
M:That’s great.Which one did you like?
W:I haven’t decided yet.Of course,it will be easiest for me to stay here in New York or go back home to Boston,but I may go to California.
M:That will be a big move.
W:So tell me about your plans?
M:Well,I applied to six newspapers.Last week,I had an interview with New York Times.
W:How did it go?
M:Not so well.I think they are looking for people with some experience.
W:Have you had any other interviews?
M:No,not yet.It seems that everyone wants to be a writer these days.There just aren’t many jobs out there.
W:That’s too bad.
M:Yes,I had a hope to have a job lined up by graduation.That doesn’t seem likely now.
W:What will you do if you can’t find a job?
M:In that case,I’ll begin working on the master’s degree in the fall.
