1. Find the problem roleplay. Students are given a roleplay card with one thing that would make them unsuitable for most but not all jobs, e.g. “you have never used a computer”, “you can’t read and write”, or “you never get up before midday”.
2. CV (resume) gaps pairwork. Give a copy of a CV (curriculum vitae or resume) with different information taken out of the Student A and Student B versions.
3. CV (resume) spot the difference pairwork. In this more challenging variation of CV Gaps Pairwork, the information is changed in the Student A and Student B versions rather than taken out, and students have to ask and answer questions to find out how many differences there are.
4. Guess my jobs by questions. In each pair of students the interviewer is given the name of a job they should interview the other person for. Without telling their partner what job they are being interviewed for, they should ask suitable questions for that job.
5. Guess your job by questions. This is an easier variation on Guess My Jobs By Questions where the interviewer has to guess the present job on the roleplay card that the interviewee has by asking only the questions given by the teacher.
6. Interview answers pyramid ranking debate. Brainstorm or give students a list of 6 to 10 possible answers to a single interview question, e.g. “Because I hate my boss” and “Because I need a new challenge” for “Why do you want to leave your present job?”.
7. Interview questions pyramid ranking debate. In this variation on Interview Answers Pyramid Ranking Debate, students decide on a ranking of questions by difficulty, unacceptability, how generally they can be used, or how likely they are to come up in an interview.
8. Interview body language mimes. Students try to mime personality types like “shy”, “confident”, “stubborn” etc. This can lead onto discussion of good body language when being interviewed, judging people you are interviewing by body language, and suitability of certain personality types for particular jobs.
9. Guess the job by CV (resume) Students try to match the CV to the next job that person got. This works particularly well with real life and surprising examples, like your own CV at the time before you first started teaching English.
10. Guess the famous person by CV (resume) In this more amusing variation of Guess The Job By CV, students try to identify CVs the teacher has written for famous people.
