Jimmy:My cousin Sal said that he put in an application for a job here.
Suzanne:Yeah, that's right.
Jimmy:Are you going to hire him?
Suzanne:I'm not sure. He doesn't have any experience and he didn't provide any references.
苏珊:我可不敢保证 。他没有经验,而且没有任何推荐信 。
Jimmy:I can vouch for him. Sal is solid. He's a really nice guy.
吉米:我可以为他担保 。萨尔很可靠 。他是个真正的好小伙 。
Suzanne:I appreciate you putting in a good word for him, but I need more assurance than that he's a nice guy.
He needs to have the temperament, work ethic, and skills for this job.
Jimmy:What he doesn't know he'll learn on the job. He's a quick study.
吉米:有不明白的他会在工作中学习 。他是个学得很快的人 。
Suzanne:How can I justify hiring someone with no experience, while passing up applicants who are better qualified?
Jimmy:He has my ringing endorsement. What else do you need? He'll work as hard as I do.
吉米:他得到了我的认可 。你还需要什么?他会和我一样努力工作 。
Suzanne:That's exactly what I'm afraid of.
