Hans:Well, I think the choice is clear. I think we should hire Clark.
汉斯:嗯,我认为这个选择再清楚不过 。我们应该雇佣克拉克 。
Freddie:To me, the choice is clear, too, but I think that choice is Paul.
Both Paul and Clark are qualified for the job, but Clark is a blowhard.
He was too full of himself.
Hans:Clark may come off as a little overconfident, but he makes a good impression.
He would make a much better rep than Paul.
Paul was just too low-key and timid.
Freddie:Paul wasn't timid at all.
He was modest and self-deprecating, but he also had a quiet confidence.
He wasn't trying too hard to impress, like Clark was.
Hans:Clark is the kind of person who stands out in a room and gets noticed.
That's what we want in a rep trying to get new clients.
Freddie:I found Clark to be overbearing.
Paul, on the other hand, had a way with him.
另一方面, 保罗则自有一套 。
He exuded confidence without having to resort to blowing his own horn.
Hans:I see we're at loggerheads about this. What do you suggest?
Freddie:Let's ask them both to lunch and ask Monique to join us.
She's done a lot of hiring and has good judgment.
Hans:You mean you want Monique to make the call so neither of us will be blamed for picking the wrong person.
Freddie:I always thought you were quick on the uptake.
