在回答雅思口语考官“Describe a time you need to arrive early for an appointment”之前，一定要搞分明appointment什么意思，我们来查查牛津高阶，上面的解释是这样的：a formal arrangement to meet or visit somebody at a particular time, especially for a reason connected with their work，所以这个解释就给了我们一个灵感，我们能够写job interview啊!一般职场小白在第一次面试的时分，都慌张的不要不要的，为了显示自己对这份工作有着足够的重视，肯定都会早到很久。或者不是我们主动想要早到，用人单位也会有“请提早XX分钟”到场的规则吧。所以，这个选题肯定不会跑题，放心整吧：
This topic reminds me of the time I needed to go to a job interview a few months ago. Back then, I applied for an internship in XX, a famed electric company. For students who major in electric and automation, getting a full-time job at this company is like a dream come true. So I thought maybe if I could be an intern, it could give me an advantage over other candidates.
However, it’s not that easy to become an intern in this kind of company. I need to pass an interview in order to get in.
I remember my interview was arranged on a Monday morning. This company is located in Changchun, but my school is in Jilin, which is about 40 minutes train ride away. So I booked the ticket one day in advance, which means I arrived in Changchun on Sunday. This interview was so important to me. I couldn’t afford to be late. I need to show them that I take this job seriously. So I booked a hotel that was so close to the company that I don’t have to worry about being late.
If I remember right, my interview was scheduled at 9 a.m. And I was there 1 hour earlier. I was so desperate to leave a good first impression on those interviewers.
After I arrived there, I didn’t expect to see other candidates, but in fact, some of them were there way earlier than me! So I guess I wasn’t the only one who wanted to nail that job interview.
