1、The hiring process may be different from one company to another.Nevertheless,the goal is the same—get the candidate who is the best fit for the position.Even so,how to choose that person? Here are some best practices used by industry leaders to attract the best talent for the job.In particular,these are the new trends in the hiring process to be prepared for when you have a job interview. Typically,an interview is held in a conference room or office.However,this makes it easy for the employer and the candidate to act predictably.The problem with this approach is that at the end of a typical interview,the employers often don’t have a much better feel for the candidate than they do after reading the candidate’s resume.Alternatively,some employers walk around the office for part of the interview.This allows the employer to get a sense of how the candidate interacts with other people,and whether the candidate is truly curious and interested in how the company runs. Another change is that some employers create teams to hire new employees in comparison to having just one administrator conduct the interview.Employers then get opinions from the team members.More importantly,this helps employers hire someone with whom current employees could get along. Also,employers want to make sure that candidates provide new viewpoints for the company.Before they hire someone,they think about the diversity of viewpoints that the candidate can bring to the company.Be prepared to share how you can add value to the company through your own unique perspective and how you will help the company solve problems creatively. Furthermore,many companies try to get a sense of the kind of work the candidates will do for the company before hiring them as full-time employees.For example,they may offer you a temporary contract first as a consultant.Likewise,they may assign you a small task as part of the interview process.

11、Children may not be using piggy banks(储钱罐) for much longer; with the move towards a cashless society,pocket money is moving digital.To reflect this trend,all of a sudden a lot of mobile budgeting apps for children have been developed worldwide: GoHenry,Osper and Gimi,to name a few. These apps offer a simple money management service to children,often for a monthly fee paid by parents.Parents can add money to children’s accounts,set limits and monitor transactions,while children can choose to save their money or spend it using a prepaid card.The apps suggest minimum ages ranging from six to nine for the prepaid card. The companies behind the apps argue that in an increasingly cashless society,these apps can be a valuable way of teaching young children about money.Two thirds of adults globally know little about finance,according to a recent survey,and one in four teenagers are unable to make even simple decisions on everyday spending. These apps aim to overcome this,claiming to teach children financial concepts,such as budgeting,interest rates and income.For instance,the Swedish app Gimi—with 1.2 million users globally—has online savings jars where children can deposit money.Parents can pay children interest as they save,and pay children for completing household tasks.The account is attached to a prepaid card that is currently available in Sweden only,but expected to launch elsewhere in Europe in the near future. “Cash was the best way to teach people about financial knowledge because it’s so easy to grasp,” Philip Haglund,CEO of Gimi,mentions.“Now money is being transferred through some kind of cyberspace,which is really abstract and hard for anyone to understand.” Haglund believes the app can teach responsible spending habits,whereas schools tend to focus more on economic theories.“You don’t become better at money management just because you have a degree in economics.It’s more about the attitude and the relationship you have with parents’ money when you’re six to 12 years old,” he says. But Catherine Winter,managing director of financial capability at The London Institute of Banking ＆ Finance,warns that while digital tools can help,there needs to be a more structured approach to financial education.The area should “have regular classroom time and ideally should be taught as a separate subject,” she says.“Children would then have the right context and foundation to get the most out of both the apps and their money.” What is the major role of mobile budgeting apps?
A.Buying favorite goods.
B.Paying fees for parents.
C.Managing pocket money.
D.Keeping an eye on children.
12、According to the passage,the Swedish app Gimi can _________.
A.guide parents to manage companies
B.give children basic ideas of finance
C.guide children to do their homework
D.teach parents how to invest their money
13、What can we infer from Philip Haglund’s words?
A.A degree in economics guarantees the capability of managing money.
B.Cyberspace is the best medium for children to get financial knowledge.
C.The app Gimi helps children develop positive attitudes towards money.
D.Cash transactions are abstract and difficult for most people to understand.
14、What does Catherine Winter suggest regarding financial education?
A.It should be well organized.
B.It should be done in cyberspace.
C.It should be provided by parents.
D.It should be a self-taught subject.
15、What is the passage mainly about?
